Georgia hires former IU coach Crean

It's official. The new men's basketball coach at the University of Georgia is Tom Crean. Fox took the Bulldogs to the NCAA Tournament twice in nine seasons, last in 2015.

Crean was 356-231 in 18 seasons at Marquette and in from 1999-2017. Prior to taking the IN job Crean spent nine seasons at Marquette, posting a 190-96 record and leading the Golden Eagles to five NCAA Tournament appearances. IN was 28-66 in his first three seasons before compiling a 138-69 mark in his final six years in Bloomington, including a pair of outright Big Ten Championships in 2013 and 2016. But in his nine seasons, he only put together three teams that met the expectations of Hoosiers fans.

The Bulldogs went 18-15 this season and elected not to accept an invitation to play in the NIT. He was also the head coach at Marquette from 1999-2008. That stretch was highlighted by a No. 1 seed in the 2013 NCAA Tournament and a Big Ten Coach of the Year for Crean in 2016. We will work diligently and with great energy to make everyone associated with the University of Georgia very proud of our efforts. He's going to be a great fit for the University of Georgia.

"I'm extremely excited to have him leading Georgia basketball into the future".
