“Our family is heartbroken by the passing of Coach Dooley,” Smart wrote in a Twitter post. “He was one of a kind with an unmatched love for UGA! He and Barbara embraced my family from day one. He will be missed by our community, the university and college athletics.”

Dooley is a member of the college football Hall of Famer, and remains the winningest coach in Georgia football history.
