Michael Adams Announces 2013 Retirement As University President

University of Georgia President Michael Adams confirmed earlier reports that he would indeed be retiring from his post in June of 2013 this morning during an announcement presentation at a campus chapel.

Adams and his wife were met with a standing ovation by a large crowd as they entered the chapel. During his 10-minute speech, Adams said he will officially step down as President on June 13, 2013 and would then re-join the University's faculty.

By making the announcement early it will give the Board of Regents plenty of time to begin the search for Adams' successor.
