ATLANTA (AP) -- In a surprise move, Georgia has hired Nevada's
Mark Fox to replace Dennis Felton.
Georgia will announce the hire at a news conference on Friday morning, a person with knowledge of the hire confirmed on Thursday night.
The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the hire has not been officially announced.
The announcement is a surprise because Georgia athletic director Damon Evans left Athens on Thursday for the Final Four in Detroit, where he was expected to interview candidates.
Fox led Nevada to a 21-13 record this season. The hire comes after Georgia was unable to hire Mike Anderson, who instead agreed to a new deal at Missouri on Tuesday.
