Breaking: Tom Crean Set To Become Georgia Basketball Coach

Tom Crean, the former Indiana Hoosiers coach, is about to takeover the reigns of Georgia’s basketball program.  Crean is finalizing the details on Georia’s Coaching position as a result of Thad Matta rejecting the Bulldogs offer on Wednesday.

Crean led the Indiana Hoosiers to a .551 winning percentage (166-135) while in Bloomington, but he inherited a tough situation.  Crean joined the Hoosiers for 9 seasons after coaching Marquette for 3 years.  Crean had a .654 winning percentage at Marquette (190-96).

Crean will come to Athens a year removed from being fired by Indiana.  Crean was a successful coach for the Hoosiers, but did not live up to the harsh expectations in Bloomington.  Athens will look to provide Crean with another opportunity, but with a more forgiving program.

We would like to welcome Tom Crean to Athens, GA and wish him the best in his tenure with Georgia.
