Default Mark Fox fired

Georgia has fired Mark Fox. Fox is a good coach who just couldn't win enough games. UGA should be a prime job. Georgia produces a lot of good high school talent. It should be easy to win there, but somehow they seem to struggle with that. Whoever they get will affect USC as well as the rest of the SEC, for good or bad.

With the s-show that is NCAAB right now I’m surprised they got rid of someone who has evaded the issues.

Apparently the writing was on the wall at the start of the season. UGA's AD McGarity is the type of AD that lets his coaches know they have to reach certain achievements to keep their jobs, when they get to that point. Fox knew he had to get the team to the NCAAT this season, and it came down to basically winning the SECT in order to do that. He didn't get it done.....

Actually, who would want to play in their small, old arena with poor attendance?

I wonder if Billy D is sick of babysitting Westbrook yet? That would send shock waves through the league, and set off a nuke in the middle of Florida lol

If UGA wasn't in the SEC this is exactly what I'd pull for just for the fallout at UF. However I want you guys to get a coach we can continue to beat on a regular basis. Also I don't care what kind of ego Westbrook has if I'm a coach I want that guy on my team, absolute beast.

I can't see this one happening. The NCAA is eventually going to slap him with a massive show cause penalty and if he's employed by UGA that's going to impact him. Crean makes a lot of sense but if I were them I'd go after URI's Hurley. Pay that man big bucks and that basketball program will go through the roof.

Is there any realistic chance we can benefit from this decommitment? If he's looking to stay local Columbia isn't too far.

He left Ohio State because of "long time health issues". Has he suddenly completely recuperated?
