Since 1995 - Insightful commentary on the Georgia Bulldogs

Post The easiest job at UGA

Friday April 18, 2008

It was a low point for Bulldog athletics when women’s golf coach Todd McCorkle resigned last year over allegations of harrassment and inappropriate conduct.

“Resigned” actually meant “reassigned within the athletic department.” McCorkle wasn’t fired. There’s just one problem.

McCorkle now has a new title, administrative specialist-managerial.

He even has an office phone number listed on the University Web site. The problem is the number routes to current women’s golf coach Kelley Hester.

Nobody in the athletic department could provide The Red & Black with even a semblance of McCorkle’s job duties.

They didn’t know.

But apparently they know how to get him his paycheck which comes with a $94,000 price tag in this new “position.” Whether or not he was fairly or unfairly accused last year, that doesn’t excuse this sham of a post within the athletic department especially when he has been double-dipping “as an instructor at The Golf Club at North Hampton in Fernandina Beach, Fla. “

McCorkle’s contract with UGA will expire at the end of June, and he told the Red & Black, “I’m at a point in my life where I’m content with each of us going our separate ways.” I guess even his shame has its limits.
