VIDEO: One on One with Jeff Dantzler and guest Jim Donnan – Episode 13

Enjoy episode 13 of Bulldawg Illustrated Digital’s One on One with Jeff Dantzler featuring legendary College Football Hall of Fame Coach Jim Donnan. In this episode, Jeff talks with Donnan about his days as a player at N.C. State, what led him into coaching, Fall Camp in the early ’70s at Florida State, his time in Athens, and more.

Jim Donnan rebuilt the Georgia football program’s talent level during his five-year stint in Athens (1996-2000). His 1997 Bulldog team went 10-2 and finished #10 nationally, led by some of the most famous players in program history, including Champ Bailey, Hines Ward, Robert Edwards, and Kirby Smart. Donnan’s Bulldogs won four straight bowl games from 1997-2000 and chalked up some memorable victories – including the first overtime game in SEC history at Auburn in 1996, a resounding upset of Florida in 1997, a triumph at LSU in 1998 and the topping of Tennessee between the hedges in 2000.

Prior to his arrival in Athens, Donnan was the head coach at Marshall for six seasons, leading the Thundering Herd to the 1992 Division 1-AA national title and four trips to the national championship game. He had a long and distinguished career as an assistant coach, notably as offensive coordinator for national champion Oklahoma in 1985.

Donnan was a standout athlete in high school and at N.C. State. As the Wolfpack quarterback, he was Liberty Bowl MVP in N.C. State’s 14-7 win over Georgia in 1967. He was also ACC Singles Champion in Tennis.
