Georgia athletic director Greg McGarity released a statement Tuesday morning indicating that Mark Fox will return as head coach of the Bulldog basketball program next year.
His statement comes in light of a report by YAHOO’s Pat Forde who wrote Monday night that Georgia was exploring options to replace the eight -year head coach.
“In response to the report by Yahoo Sports, we are NOT in the process of exploring our options to replace Fox,” McGarity said in an email sent to beat writers. “We look forward to Mark leading our program next year and all of our efforts are centered on postseason play. It’s unfortunate we need to respond at this time, but it was necessary to quiet these unfounded rumors.”
