Mark Fox, Georgia Basketball Discussing Coaching Contract Extension

Mark Fox took Georgia Bulldogs basketball to the 2011 NCAA Tournament, the program's second March Madness trip since 2002, and nearly pulled off a win in the process. After posting UGA hoops' first 20-win season since the Jim Harrick years (and doing it without all the, uh, Harrickness), Fox is in line for a contract extension.

The Atlanta Jounal-Constitution's Tim Tucker has comments from both Fox and athletic director Greg McGarity on the subject. Both are very positive a deal will get done soon, and Fox says he'd turn down any other job offer that happened to come his way.

Fox's current deal pays him $1.3 million per year, the same as first-year Tennessee Volunteers head coach Cuonzo Martin, a bit more than newly hired Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets coach Brian Gregory, and almost $1 million per year less than new Arkansas Razorbacks coach Mike Anderson.
