    I believe Jim Donnan still lives in Athens, as well. There is something special about the Classic city.

    Athens is God’s country...heaven on earth! Coach Richt and his family are naturals for the Classic City...as much as a hot dog, rings, and a frosted orange at the Varsity! Welcome home Coach!

    I believe you can add Vince Dooley and Ray Goff to that list. That must be some sort of record! Is Wallace Butts still alive?! Seriously, that does say something about the university and the town that every single head coach since 1964, or to put it another way, every living former coach, has a home in or around town.
