Tom Crean Finalizing Deal To Be Georgia Head Coach

Report: Georgia meeting with Tom Crean

According to Seth Emerson of DawgNation.com, Georgia contacted former IN coach Tom Crean on Wednesday to discuss the position. That nine-season run was highlighted by a trip to the Final Four in 2003, when junior guard Dwyane Wade led the Warriors and weeks later became an National Basketball Association top-five pick.

Georgia appears to be the only SEC job opening remaining, as Ole Miss expected to hire Middle Tennessee head coach Kermit Davis as early as Thursday.

Before coming to Indiana, Crean coached Marquette for nine seasons and made the NCAA Tournament five times.

"I'm extremely excited to have him leading Georgia basketball into the future". Bringing Crean to Georgia demonstrates that the program is serious about competing in basketball and the coach himself validates that mission. He was sacked last March at IN following his ninth season with the Hoosiers.

"I am honored an humbled to join the University of Georgia family", Crean said in the statement.

Crean will take over a Georgia program that went 18-15 this season. The Dawgs were reportedly close to hiring former Ohio State coach Thad Matta this week before talks broke off.

Tom Crean is finalizing an agreement to become the next coach at Georgia, sources tell ESPN.

The school announced the hire of the former IN and Marquette coach on Thursday night. He was let go following an 18-16 season and first-round NIT loss a year ago.

Head coach Tom Crean of the Indiana Hoosiers reacts to a play during a game against the Wisconsin Badgers at the Kohl Center on February 5, 2017 in Madison, Wisconsin.

Crean's new salary would have ranked among the top 10 nationally this season.
