The writing has been on the wall for sometime but it appears some kind of confirmation should be coming soon. ESPN.com’s Jeff Goodman reports that Georgia and head basketball coach Mark Fox are expected to part ways after a disappointing season.

Goodman’s report was also confirmed by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s Seth Emerson who cites a person close to the program.
Per Emerson, the decision was made several weeks ago barring a dramatic turnaround.
The decision to move on from Fox does not come as surprise. Even Fox appeared to have an inkling it was coming. Georgia administrators basically decided several weeks ago that it was time to make a change, barring a drastic turnaround this season, according to people familiar with the decision.
The Bulldogs stumbled to a 16-14 record this season before defeating Vanderbilt and upsetting Missouri in the SEC Tournament. However, Georgia fell in the quarterfinals with a loss to Kentucky, its 11th straight loss to the Wildcats.
