Georgia's Fox receives two-year contract extension

Athens, GA ( - Georgia men's basketball head coach Mark Fox was given a two-year contract extension on Wednesday.

Fox has two years remaining on his current contract and the two-year extension will keep him in Georgia through the 2017-18 season.

"The improvement our team made throughout the 2013-14 season was very encouraging, and with the loss of only one starter, the expectations for the coming season will be very high," said director of athletics Greg McGarity.

In 2014, the Bulldogs tied for second place in the final SEC standings with a 20 overall record, while going 12-6 in conference play. The team earned a berth in the NIT, advancing to the second round before falling to Louisiana Tech.
