Meet Coach Fox

As the CFO of Pantsless Enterprises, LLC let me be the 36th-37th person to welcome our new basketball coach, straight from the desert, Mark Fox!

As I've said before, basketball ain't really my thang. However, if you're anything like me (catching headlines here & there about the coaching search) your first reaction was...who is this guy?!?

Info courtesy of AJC:
• Fox has been coach of the Wolf Pack for the past five seasons, where he was 123-43, including 21-13 this past season. He never won fewer than 21 games there and went 29-5 in 2006-07.

• Nevada competes in the Western Athletic Conference, and Fox’s teams won the league four of his five seasons. They finished second to Utah State this past season.

• The Wolf Pack played in the NCAA Tournament three straight seasons but not the past two. They reached the second round in 2005 and 2007.

• Fox’s teams played Georgia’s twice, winning both times. Nevada beat the Bulldogs 58-47 in Athens on Nov. 26, 2004 and 68-62 on Dec. 21, 2005.

Apparently he's a big guy from the mid-majors and hopefully he can bring some "W's" into Stegeman.

The big question now, is how long it take Terence Moore to scream racism since we hired a white 5, 4, 3, 2.....

Happy Friday, suckers.

Terence can say whatever he wants, but the fact remains that we have a black AD and offered a black HC first. So any cry of racism is just pathetic...

Not that that ever stopped Mr. Moore before.
