The Georgia Bulldogs are in need of a new men’s basketball head coach. The team is expected to fire Mark Fox, according to ESPN’s Jeff Goodman.

His job has been in jeopardy in recent days. He has been the Bulldogs Head Coach since the 2009-10 season.

Fox is expected to be the second coach fired on Saturday. The Connecticut Huskies fires Kevin Ollie, their men’s basketball coach, on Saturday morning.

The 49-year-old Fox guided the Bulldogs to two NCAA Tournament appearances. He was 163-133 at Georgia.

The Bulldogs failed to reach the NCAA Tournament this season. They ended their season with an 18-15 record, before losing to the Kentucky Wildcats in the Southeastern Conference Tournament on Friday.

Despite the 18-15 record, Georgia was 7-11 in conference play.

Fox previously the Nevada Wolf Pack head coach, where he went 123-43 in five seasons. In his first three seasons there, he guided the team to the NCAA Tournament before losing in the CBI first-round in his last two seasons.

The Bulldogs are not expected to play in any postseason tournaments this season. In 2015-16 and 2016-17, his team lost in the National Invitational Tournament (NIT).

The two seasons that Fox guided Georgia to the NCAA Tournament, they lost in their first-round games.

At Georgia, he could not win more than 21 games. His Bulldogs team won 21 games twice – first in 2010-11 when they went 21-12 and 9-7 in the Southeastern Conference.

Then, during the 2014-15, they also went 21-12, but went 11-7 in the SEC.

When he was the Wolf Pack head coach, his best second was in 2006-07 when he guided the team to a 29-5 record. Nevada lost in the Round of 32 in the NCAA Tournament.
