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 coach...in 5, 4, 3, 2.....
Happy Friday, suckers.
