Josh Brooks leads Georgia athletics with strong hires, budget planning and oversight

It has been a busy year for athletic director Josh Brooks, who will be among those front and center at the UGA Athletic Association Board of Directors Meeting on Thursday and Friday at the Ritz Carlton Reynolds, Lake Oconee.

Brooks, in his fourth year leading the athletic department, will provide his annual report and is expected to request a 10-percent budget increase to more than $190 million.
