Mark Fox reaffirmed his commitment to the Georgia Bulldogs after reports surfaced linking him to the vacancy at Kansas State.
Georgia Basketball head coach Mark Fox today denied any interest in the head coaching vacancy at Kansas State and reaffirmed his commitment to the Bulldogs' program.
I grew up in Kansas but I plan to grow old in Georgia. Any rumor mentioning me w/another job is false. GO DAWGS!— Mark Fox (@coachmarkfox) March 28, 2012
After former Wildcats head coach Frank Martin announced the he was leaving to become the new head coach at South Carolina it wasn't long before some started wondering out loud if Fox, who is a Kansas native, would be interested. Fox did right to shut down the rumors before they got started because he is in the middle of recruiting the state's biggest prize in McDonald's All-American Tony Parker.
Fox came to Georgia by way of Nevada and took the Bulldogs to the NCAA Tournament in just his second season after taking over for Dennis Felton. The Bulldogs regressed in year three after early departures by Trey Thompkins and Travis Leslie to the NBA.
