Georgia athletic director Greg McGarity believed this could be the year the Bulldogs returned to the NCAA Tournament and made a move to join the SEC’s elite.

Instead, a disappointing season led McGarity to decide Mark Fox wasn’t the right coach to help Georgia contend for championships.

McGarity fired Fox on Saturday, ending the coach’s nine-year stay that included only two NCAA Tournament appearances.

The decision to fire Fox came one day after the Bulldogs’ loss to Kentucky in the quarterfinals of the Southeastern Conference Tournament.
