Appreciating Georgia Coach Andy Landers and his 900 wins

This past Sunday, #13 Georgia routed Mississippi, giving Bulldogs Coach Andy Landers his 900th career win.

The NCAA doesn’t count the first 82 wins of Landers’ career, because they came at Roane State – a community college he coached at for four years before being hired in 1979 at Georgia. But the University – and many fans – count all of Landers’ victories.

Landers is an inductee into the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame, his teams have made 28 NCAA tournament appearances, and there are 21 former Bulldogs currently in the WNBA.

Landers grew up in rural Tennessee, and decided he would be a coach at age 12.
