Placeholder Image

Georgia’s legendary football coach and athletic director Vince Dooley will visit with fans in Jefferson on Thursday, Dec. 6, as part of his book tour of Georgia.

Real Deals of Jefferson will be host to Dooley from 2-5 p.m. at 21 Cobb St. There is no admission, and the public is invited.

Since his retirement from the University of Georgia, Dooley has authored several books. “Dooley: My Forty Years at Georgia” is his best-selling autobiography. “Dooley’s Playbook: The 34 Most Memorable Plays in Georgia Football History” chronicles plays dating from 1919 and features vivid illustrations by artist Steve Penley.

“Vince Dooley’s Garden — the Horticultural Journey of a Football Coach” features fabulous and famous gardens, including his own.

The just-released “History and Reminiscences of the University of Georgia” features his own research and writing about the storied flagship university as the nation’s oldest land grant institution. It is also illustrated by Penley.

Additionally, Dooley brings numbered artist prints (from original paintings in his home), game day memorabilia, DVDs and other items. Copies of his books will be available for purchase to have autographed.

“These are fun events as we travel across Georgia,” Dooley said, “As it’s up close with fans of all ages, and we had a terrific turnout at Real Deals last fall so they are kind enough to invite me again.”
