Report: Mark Fox in talks with Colorado State about head coaching job

Former Georgia men’s basketball coach Mark Fox is reportedly in talks to become the next head coach at Colorado State according to Justin Michael, a Colorado based reporter.

USA Today’s Dan Wolken backed up the report.

Fox spent nine seasons in Athens where he compiled a record of 163-133 and led Georgia to two NCAA Tournament berths. The Bulldogs missed the tournament the past three seasons. Fox was fired on Saturday, and Georgia elected not to accept a bid to the National Invitation Tournament.

The Rams parted ways with six-year head coach Larry Eustachy after the team went 11-21 this season.

Georgia has targeted Thad Matta and Tom Crean for the vacant position. Matta declined Georgia’s offer to become head coach on Wednesday.
