Tuesday, March 24, 2009. (AP) -- The job of men's basketball coach at the University of Georgia remains open, but athletic director Damon Evans isn't saying much about possible replacements for previous coach Dennis Felton.

Evans has said he will aim high and come armed with sufficient funds.

Missouri's Mike Anderson, Oklahoma's Jeff Capel and Xavier's Sean Miller are still coaching in the NCAA tournament and are unavailable to be interviewed.

Anthony Grant of Virginia Commonwealth is available but may be looking at another Southeastern Conference school.

Evans fired Felton on Jan. 29, leaving assistant coach Pete Herrmann to serve as interim coach for the remainder of the season.

Felton was making $760,000 per year. Evans may have to at least double that salary to land an established coach.
