AP source: Georgia hires Nevada's Fox

By  | 

ATLANTA (AP) - In a surprise move, Georgia has hired Nevada's
Mark Fox to replace Dennis Felton.

Georgia will announce the hire at a news conference on Friday
morning, a person with knowledge of the hire confirmed on Thursday

The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the hire
has not been officially announced.

The announcement is a surprise because Georgia athletic director
Damon Evans left Athens on Thursday for the Final Four in Detroit,
where he was expected to interview candidates.

Fox led Nevada to a 21-13 record this season. The hire comes
after Georgia was unable to hire Mike Anderson, who instead agreed
to a new deal at Missouri on Tuesday.
