Dennis Felton has been fired as head coach of the Georgia Bulldogs. A news conference has been scheduled at UGA at 11:00 a.m. to discuss the decision. Assistant coach Pete Hermann will take over as interim head coach for the remainder of the season.
Felton ends his tenure with an overall record of 84-91. Although he won one SEC Tournament, his teams often played poorly on offense and had a dismal record away from Stegeman Coliseum.
Possible candidates to replace Felton are Anthony Grant (Virginia Commonwealth), Brad Stephens (Butler) and Jeff Capel (Oklahoma). Other candidates mentioned by hopeful Bulldog fans include Tubby Smith (Minnesota), Scott Drew (Baylor), Tom Izzo (Michigan State), Sean Miller (Xavier), Jamie Dixon (Pittsburgh) and Bobby Knight (currently retired).
