Legendary Georgia Football Coach Vince Dooley Hospitalized With COVID-19

Georgia football legend Vince Dooley, 90, has reportedly been hospitalized with pneumonia, his daughter Deanna told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Georgia football legend Vince Dooley, who is 90 years old, has been hospitalized with pneumonia. His daughter, Deanna, said this.

The AJC said that most people think the famous football coach will only be in the hospital for a short time. Dooley, who coached the Bulldogs from 1964 to 1988, also has a mild case of COVID-19, according to his daughter.

Deanna told AJC that it would be better for him to get the medicine through an IV at the hospital. “He hates missing the game, but he has a great way to watch all the games all day.”
