Mark Fox and Georgia’s season certainly isn’t over yet, and the team still has a shot to make a run to the NCAA tournament with a good SEC tournament showing.
As the eighth-seeded team in the field, however, it’s going to be tough, as the Bulldogs will likely need to win at least two games — which would mean taking down top-ranked Kentucky — in order to really give the NCAA selection committee something to think about.
That would mean a second straight season without an NCAA tournament bid, and it could also mean Fox might be looking for a new job by the end of the month. That’s the rumor as reported by Yahoo’s Pat Forde, at least, who says ‘Georgia has begun doing due diligence on potential replacements for Fox.’
Nothing is set in stone, of course, and Fox and his team will have at least one more opportunity to prove that the head coach should return to Athens for a ninth season in 2017-18.
