Georgia AD Greg McGarity given 1-year contract extension

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Georgia athletic director Greg McGarity has been given a one-year contract extension.

The announcement came in a rare online video spring meeting of the University of Georgia athletic association’s board of directors.

The 65-year-old McGarity was named Georgia’s AD in 2010.

His extension came in a unanimous vote.

UGA President Jere W. Morehead said he was grateful McGarity agreed to serve another year “particularly now, with all that we’re going through — in this country and in intercollegiate athletics.”

Morehead said he appreciates McGarity’s “willingness to serve.’’
