Since 1995 - Insightful commentary on the Georgia Bulldogs

Post Fox makes his first big decision

Wednesday April 8, 2009

The Georgia Sports Blog called it the other day, and now it’s official: Mark Fox has added Philip Pearson to the Georgia basektball staff. Pearson was the right-hand man at Alabama and was the interim coach after Mark Gottfried was let go during the season. Gottfried’s Alabama staff had plenty of experience getting quality prospects from the state of Georgia, and Fox will lean on Pearson’s experience as a member of that staff to rebuild the Georgia program.

An interesting side-note:

Fox said he received hundreds of text messages from people interested in working at Georgia within the first 36 hours after he was named the Bulldogs coach.

So…one more assistant coach spot to fill. Who will get his text answered?
