Mark Fox may not have won enough basketball games to remain Georgia’s basketball coach, but he stayed first-class right through the end.
On Sunday, the outgoing Bulldogs men’s basketball coach posted a touching farewell letter to Georgia fans to his Twitter account.
“As my time ends at Georgia, I would like to thank everyone who assisted us along the way,” Fox wrote. “Your support will always be genuinely appreciated by my family and I. We carry some great memories and friendships away with us.
“I hope God’s grace shall touch each of you.”
Fox leaves Georgia after posting a 163-133 record through nine seasons in Athens. He made his final remarks during a press conference on Sunday afternoon:
