  • Follow UGA

Augusta native Jim Douglas has been promoted to associate head coach for the Georgia golf team.
Douglas, the youngest son of the late Augusta Municipal Golf Course operator Red Douglas, has had two tenures as assistant coach for the Bulldogs totaling 11 seasons.

“Jim will have more responsibilities with the day-to-day operations of our men’s team,” said Georgia head coach Chris Haack, who has added the title of director of golf to his title.

“This is a role he’s ready for,” Haack said of Douglas. “He knows everything there is to know about our program and the way things need to be done. He’s been my right-hand man for many years, and we are lucky to have him in Athens.”

Douglas was Haack’s assistant from 1997 through 2005, helping the Bulldogs win the 1999 and 2005 NCAA titles along with four Southeastern Conference  titles. He served parts of the 2010 season as a volunteer coach and returned to the staff in January of 2011.

Haack, who will be entering his 17th season this fallas head coach, will serve as the liaison between the Athletic Association and the UGA Golf Course, will oversee the Boyd Center and the adjacent practice facilities, and will be available as counsel to first-year women’s head coach Josh Brewer.
