University of Georgia President Michael Adams is expected to announce his upcoming retirement in Athens on Thursday.

According to a report by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, University of Georgia President Michael Adams is expected to announce his retirement on Thursday effective June 30, 2013. Adams is expected to discuss his retirement with the campus community and the timing of the announcement give the university plenty of time to search for his replacement.

During Adams' 16 years as President he has enjoyed a bit of an up and down tenure. His handling of Vince Dooley's retirement didn't elevate his popularity and had a big hand in the hiring of Jim Harrick as basketball coach.

On the other hand he also was the one that fired Jim Donnan and Dawg Sports' T. Kyle King points out that Adams' handling of Damon Evans' DUI arrest and the subsequent hiring of Greg McGarity were his finest hour during his tenure.

UGA also secured in excess of $1 billion dollars in constructions and has raised millions in scholarship money for students.
