carla Green williams it starts at the top in athens From President Michael Adams to Director of Athletics Damon Evans to Senior Woman Administrator Carla Green Williams, University of Georgia administrators have first-hand knowledge of the experiences and values of being a student-athlete. All three – and many more on the UGA campus – were intercollegiate athletes. In fact, Evans and Williams were standouts for the Georgia football and basketball programs, respectively, giving them the unique perspective of what makes the University of Georgia and UGA Athletics so special.
“ I feel extremely fortunate as an administrator because I have had the unique opportunity of being a former Lady Dog as well as a former assistant coach with the program. I understand the rich history of the program from many different angles and that helps me continue to provide the support needed for the student-athletes and coaches. It’s great to be able to still have an impact on a program that is very dear to me and so many other former Lady Dogs and coaches.”

“Competing in varsity athletics can be one of the most valuable aspects of a college experience. The lessons you learn on the field or the track or the court stay with you for the rest of your life – teamwork, perseverance, dedication, and self-sacrifice. In balance with academics and the rest of student life, being an athlete is a unique and extraordinary experience.”
Carla Green Williams was a three-year starter for the Lady Bulldogs at point guard in the late-1980s and now is the envy of every former Georgia player. She’s Andy Landers’ boss. Williams has the extremely unique perspective of seeing intercollegiate athletics at virtually every plateau. She competed at the highest level and was an assistant on Landers’ staff during the program’s ultra-successful run in the mid-1990s. Williams has since worked as an administrator at Florida State, Vanderbilt and Georgia.
