Mark Fox was introduced as the Georgia men’s basketball coach three years ago this month.
Now, only three other SEC hoops coaches have been at their school longer. That includes league newcomers Texas A&M and Missouri.
Fox, Kentucky’s John Calipari and Alabama’s Anthony Grant are tied for fourth in longevity at their schools.
Trent Johnson, Fox’s good friend from their days together at Washington and Nevada, has resigned at LSU after four seasons. Johnson is expected to be introduced today as the new coach at TCU.
That makes the third coaching change at an SEC program already this year.
Rick Stansbury stepped down at Mississippi State after 14 seasons in what was called a retirement from coaching. The school hired Clemson assistant Rick Ray as the new coach.
Darrin Horn was fired at South Carolina after four seasons. He was replaced by Frank Martin of Kansas State.
