From the Publisher:

"There are brain surgeons, rocket scientists, visionary statesmen, and military heroes who have had extraordinarily fulfilling and meaningful jobs, but my jobs as Georgia football coach and athletics director have undeniably been, in my opinion, the best jobs in the world." —Vince Dooley

"For 41 years Vincent has served the University of Georgia well and has become one of the most respected people in his profession. This does not happen by accident." —from the Foreword by Barbara Dooley

From the Inside Flap:

Over the span of four decades as a national championship football coach and an award-winning administrator, Vince Dooley made University of Georgia athletics his life’s work. As his Hall of Fame career wound down he decided he was ready to tell his story as one of the most respected and decorated figures in the history of intercollegiate athletics. Dooley grew up on the rough end of Mobile, Alabama, and used football as his springboard to an incredibly fulfilling life. He was an outstanding defensive back who captained the 1953 Auburn team. He went on to join the Tigers coaching staff before landing the head job at Georgia in 1964 at the tender age of 31. In 25 years at the helm for Georgia, Dooley won 201 games, six SEC championships, and the 1980 national championship, for which he was named Coach of the Year. In 1979 he assumed the role of athletics director, a position he held concurrently until he retired from coaching in 1988. In that role he brought Georgia athletics back into the national spotlight and was considered one of the most successful administrators in the nation. He flourished there until 2004, when UGA president Michael Adams made the highly controversial decision not to renew his contract. In Dooley: My 40 Years at Georgia, the coach talks candidly for the first time about his final days at Georgia and gives his perspective on the behind-the-scenes negotiations. He also recounts everything that led to those final days, from his playing career to his surprise hiring at the age of 31, and from his relationships with all of his players and coaches over the years—including the emergence of the 1980 national championship team—to his dealings with the other legends of the sport, such as Bear Bryant, Woody Hayes, Bud Wilkinson, Shug Jordan, and so many more. Dooley is an insider’s look at Georgia football and Georgia athletics over the past four decades from the man who lived it every day.
