After news broke that Georgia fired head coach Mark Fox, Mrs. Tyler Thompson wrote:
Both the Ole Miss and Georgia jobs are now open. Hopefully neither of the schools are dumb enough to hire Rick Pitino.
Georgia might just be dumb enough to do it.
Now that the dust has settled, people are talking. Jay Williams is listening and he’s heard that Slick Rick’s name is hot in the streets. The ESPN analyst’s exact words were:
Been hearing Rick Pitino’s name a lot from trusted sources regarding the Georgia job.
Pitino did say yesterday that he’s hired an agent and he plans on a return to coaching. If Pitino doesn’t want to keep losing to Calipari every year, another former rivaled foe might. Mike Decourcy reports former Indiana coach Tom Crean is interested in Georgia’s head coaching vacancy. This coaching search is gonna be…something.
