Florida Athletic Director Jeremy Foley is retiring on Monday, his last day with the Gators after serving them for over 20 years.
The Gators won 27 national titles in 10 different sports under Foley and he’s being remembered around the SEC as one of its most successful athletic directors at any school.
He visited the Paul Finebaum Show on Monday afternoon and was asked about how it felt cleaning out his office and if any memory or memento stood out.
“Not really,” Foley said. “If you’ve ever been in my office Paul, there is a lot of really cool things from the national championships we’ve won in all different sports which were really hard to do. Just really the finality of it all, just walking out of the office and the walls are bare, obviously this is real.”
“…There were just some incredible memories and my office kind of invited all the memories because it was in that office there that we hired Urban (Meyer) and it was in that office there that we hired Billy (Donovan). A lot of great memories in there and certainly a lot of reminiscing as those things happened.”
Former Mississippi State athletic director Scott Stricklin will take over for Foley after six years in Starkville.
