There is still a lot of mystery, a lot of rumor, and a lot of general head-scratching about the continued absence of Georgia head men’s and women coach Jack Bauerle, but today we were able to get confirmation of at least one fact: Bauerle will “not be with the women’s team in Minneapolis or the men in Austin,” according to a team spokesperson, who also said that there was “no change in his status.”
We do know, according to several confirmed sources, that Bauerle does have his own attorney in this matter. That indicates that things have progressed beyond a simple internal investigation, and jives with the fact that almost three months later, there hasn’t been any conclusion to the matter of Bauerle’s suspension, nor any additional information released.
This status for NCAA’s is different for that employed at the SEC Championships. At SEC’s, Bauerle was allowed on deck during warmups, and then had to move either to his office (Georgia hosted that meet) or into the stands during the competition.
