The University of Georgia and Mark Fox have agreed to a two-year contract extension.

As part of a press release announcing the 2016 budget, as well as information being dispersed on the UGA Indoor Athletic Facility's location, the university made the announcement of Fox's contract extension on Friday morning after being discussed at the spring meetings between the Board of Directors on Thursday.

With three years left on his contract, Fox is now set to stay in Athens until at least the 2019-20 season.

The Georgia Bulldogs made the NCAA Tournament for the second time in Fox's tenure in the 2014-15 season with an impressive 21-12 record companioning their appearance in The Big Dance. They finished tied for third place in the Southeastern Conference with an 11-7 record, matching that of the LSU Tigers, Ole Miss Rebels and Texas A&M Aggies.

Under Fox, via KenPom, Georgia was 85th overall in Adjusted Offensive Efficiency, scoring 106.2 points per 100 possessions, and was 23rd in Adjusted Defensive Efficiency, allowing just 94.0 points per 100 possessions.
