Not a big surprise, and is why Calamari went to bat for him yesterday after the Jellycats beat Jawja. UGa hoops coaches are a victim of their location; people look at the talent coming out of Atlanta and think the Dawgs should win big all the time. And maybe they should be better than they have been historically (one Final Four in 1983).
Athens paper is already speculating they might go after Tom Crean or Thad Motta, or perhaps the current coach at College of Charleston who has done good things at the mid-major level. Throwing out the names of Shaka Smart and Buzz Williams too. UGa would be a step down from VTech for Buzz though, I think.
You gotta win in the SEC, or this conference will eat you up!
It is curious though, if his comments about the cheating going on, (FBI investigations), rubbed people the wrong way. But you’re right, he didn’t win enough.
