Mark Fox's Agent Has Been Approached About Other Basketball Coaching Jobs, Says Greg McGarity

Mark Fox has received inquiries via his agent about leaving the Georgia Bulldogs to coach basketball elsewhere, athletic director Greg McGarity told Marc Weiszer. McGarity:

I am aware of a couple of inquiries about certain positions. It was just `Hey, I haven’t called anybody back and don’t plan to.

Of course Fox has drawn interest. He’s done an excellent job at Georgia, other than fielding a team with the frustrating habit of folding after halftime while holding big leads. Either way, taking Georgia to a NCAA Tournament after years of mediocrity is going to earn notice.

The N.C. State Wolfpack gig was the most-rumored destination in the event of a Fox flight, and is the biggest job remaining after the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, Arkansas Razorbacks, Tennessee Volunteers, and Missouri Tigers recently brought on new coaches. Fox could’ve been a viable candidate for any of them, save cash-strapped Tech — even that SEC West school, which currently pays new coach Mike Anderson far more than UGA pays Fox.
