Less than one week after firing Mark Fox, the Bulldogs have found their replacement: former Indiana and Marquette head coach Tom Crean.
The news was first reported by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
Tom Crean is finalizing an agreement to become the next coach at Georgia, sources tell ESPN.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) March 15, 2018
Crean’s head coaching career began at 1999 with the Marquette Golden Eagles. He went 190-96 in nine seasons in Milwaukee, highlighted by an appearance in the 2003 Final Four behind Dwyane Wade.
Crean moved on to an Indiana program facing heavy sanctions in 2008. After three substandard seasons, he turned things around and got the Hoosiers to three Sweet Sixteens in five seasons. He had a 166-135 record in his nine seasons with the Hoosiers.
