Georgia reaches out to Tom Crean regarding coaching vacancy

Tom Crean shown here at Indiana at 2016 could soon be basketball coach at Georgia

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN tweeted out that Crean will become the next head coach at the University of Georgia. 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 picked up the hottest coaching free agent in college basketball, putting Crean back in the driver's seat after a year away from coaching. Between the two programs, he holds a 166-135 overall record, having won three regular season titles and making it to three Sweet 16's (all with Indiana) and a Final Four (in 2003 with Marquette).

Last season, the Bulldogs went 18-15 before firing head coach Mark Fox.

Cars, bodies remain trapped in Florida bridge collapse; six dead
The main priority, Perez said Friday, was to get to the bodies police believe are trapped under collapsed concrete. Two workers were on the 950-ton bridge when it pancaked on top of vehicles waiting at a stoplight.

Crean spent the past year working as an analyst with ESPN after being dismissed from Indiana.

"I am honored and humbled to join the University of Georgia family", Crean said. The Hoosiers fired him after missing the NCAA Tournament following a No. 11 in the AP Top 25 poll for the 2016-17 season. The Dawgs were reportedly close to hiring former Ohio State coach Thad Matta this week before talks broke off.

While Crean served as an ESPN analyst during the 2017-18 college basketball season, he remained a marquee name to fill potential openings.

Jones , yet to lose a Twickenham Test as England boss, was well aware of the task at hand, saying: " Ireland is a very good team". Owen Farrell will start at No 10 alongside Richard Wigglesworth at No 9, with Danny Care not named among the starters.

Interestingly, Crean's salary will actually be similar or equal to the average annual value of current IU Coach Archie Miller's deal. He began his career at IN with the program on NCAA probation, which was a result of more than 100 impermissible phone calls made to recruits by predecessor Kelvin Sampson and his assistants.

But an 18-16 record in 2016-17, with a first-round loss in the NIT, doomed Crean and he was sacked.
