Encyclopedia > Vince Dooley

Vincent Joseph Dooley (born September 4, 1932 in Mobile, Alabama) was the head football coach (seasons 1964 through 1988) and athletic director (1979 to 2004) at the University of Georgia. During his 25 year coaching career at UGA, Dooley compiled a 201-77-10 record. His teams won 6 Southeastern Conference titles and the 1980 National Championship. Dooley's teams were known for their hard nosed defense and conservative yet fundamentally sound offenses. Dooley is a graduate of Auburn University (1954, M.His 1963) where he played college football and later coached under Ralph "Shug" Jordan. In 2004 the U.S. Sports Academy presented Dooley with the Carl Maddox Sport Management Award, an award given annually to an individual for contribution to the growth and development of sports through management practices. Also in 2004 Dooley was inducted into UGA's Circle of Honor, which is the school's highest tribute to former athletes and coaches.

In 1964 Dooley, at the age of thirty-one, was hired by athletic director Joel Eaves as head coach of the UGA football team and served in that position until 1988.
Dooley succeeded Eaves as athletic director in 1979 and dedicated the next twenty-five years to Georgia Bulldog athletics until his contract was not renewed in a highly publicized power battle with university president Michael Adams in 2003.
Dooley was also instrumental in bringing to Athens three sporting events (women's soccer, rhythmic gymnastics, and volleyball) of the 1996 Olympic Games and served six years on the advisory committee to the Atlanta Olympic Organizing Committee, whose president, Billy Payne, was a former UGA football player.

Dooley continued to excel at football under coach Ralph "Shug" Jordan, however, and in 1954 was invited to play in the College All-Star Game in Chicago (the All-Stars lost that game to the National Football League Champion Detroit Lions, 31-6).
Although Dooley's first game as head coach resulted in a 31-3 drubbing at the hands of Bear Bryant's University of Alabama Crimson Tide, fans warmed quickly to the new coach as he led the team to a 7-3-1 mark and a 7-0 Sun Bowl win over Texas Tech University in 1964.
Dooley was also celebrated for his good fortune against two of Georgia's worst enemies: He had a 19-6 record against the Georgia Institute of Technology and a 17-7-1 record against the University of Florida.
