Great news.  Was hoping this would happen.  Read the SI story on him going around to different organizations this past year to learn. May make SEC basketball better which will keep helping us.

You think he'll fare any better here than he did in the B10? IIRC, he pulled in alot of talent there, just couldn't get it done.

He barely had enough players to field a team his first season at IU. I donít know if he will elevate Uga or not.  We know the state is loaded with talent.  But Uga really doesnít care and this is ACC basketball country.  I hope he will do well except one or two games a season. Conf respect brings better seeding and easier to make tourney.

If UGA didn't care about basketball, then why did they fire their most successful coach in history?

He did a great job at Marquette, not so great at IU.  I used to think he was pretty good but I now think he is just mediocre.   He really under achieved at IU which is a basketball blue blood.  They are not the program they were under Knight but they should be a heck of a lot better than they have been the last 10 years.  I bet Archie Miller gets it going there in a couple years.

Having Wade helped his success at Marquette. Buzz was better there IMO except he never had a player like Wade to get him to the F4.  Sampson decimated IU.  So I think Crean still has something to prove.  Just not sure if Uga is where to do it.

When Matta and Stool at Ga St said they werenít interested, Uga could have been down to Pelphrey level soon.

Ha! Considering his wife is/was a Harbaugh, he probably does.  ;)

Google Hugh Durham.

After  making the Final Four in 1983, Durham only won 1 NCAA Tournament over the next 12 seasons. FWIW.

But Durham is the winningest coach at 3 different schools. Maybe the only coach in the NCAA to do that.

He only had one tournament win his last 5 years at Marquette, and couldn't win consistently at Indiana which is a Top 10 program. Left them in such bad shape they lost to Indiana State in non-con play this year. I'm not too worried, but he can't be any worse than Fox.

It's going to come down whether or not he can get Ga high school players to UGa.  Collin Sexton is from Marietta.  Reggie Perry in the upcoming class. 

Some retreads have helped SEC programs.  Barnes, Pearl and Howland have all made their programs better.  (I know: cheating).

"Sources told CBS Sports that a search firm working on behalf of Georgia initially inquired about Xavier's Chris Mack and Texas' Shaka Smart, both of whom respectfully declined."  UGA shot high.

Good hire for UGA and the SEC. Tom Crean is very well respected. No doubt in my mind he will make UGA top 25 quality more often than not. Now will he make them consistently in the top 4 of the SEC? I don't think so, but with hires like this the SEC will get more respect and if Crean's product is competitive they will be among the 6-8 teams the SEC gets into the tourney.

This is just ludicrous. How in the hell does this help us?

not sure he is an improvement over Fox but Fox had been there to long without a couple of really big seasons close together

I think he can coach circles around Fox who I felt was the weakest coach in the SEC after LSU fires Jones
