ATHENS, Ga. — Georgia athletics director Vince Dooley has met with assistant men's basketball coach Jim Harrick, Jr., about inaccuracies found in Harrick's resume.
In the wake of the discovery of inaccuracies in former Georgia Tech football coach George O'Leary's resume, leading to him resigning from his new job at Notre Dame only days after he was hired, there was an examination of resumes of all Georgia coaches.
Harrick, Jr., the son of head coach Jim Harrick, inaccurately reported the number of years he attended Pepperdine University, leaving out the fact he began his college career with one year at a Utah junior college. The resume also misidentified an academic award Harrick, Jr., won at Pepperdine.
"I met with him and we had a pretty open discussion about the situation,'' Dooley said Thursday. "I think we have a very good understanding and I feel the issue is closed.''
Asked if any disciplinary action was necessary, Dooley said "I think our discussion was appropriate.''
