ATLANTA (AP) Georgia coach Mark Fox was given a two-year contract extension on Wednesday following a season in which athletic director Greg McGarity said he saw "very encouraging" improvement.
Fox is 85-77 in five seasons at Georgia, including a 20-14 record in the 2013-14 season. The Bulldogs tied Kentucky for second in the Southeastern Conference at 12-6. Georgia fell short of the NCAA tournament and won one NIT game.
Georgia started the season 1-4 as it adjusted to the loss of Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, the No. 8 overall pick by Detroit in the 2013 draft.
