Dennis Felton has been fired as Georgia's
basketball coach, one day after the team lost by 26 points at
Florida for its seventh straight defeat.
A person with knowledge of the situation told The Associated
Press that Felton's ouster would be announced by athletic director
Damon Evans at a news conference Thursday. The person spoke on
condition of anonymity because the announcement had not been made.
Georgia is 9-11 and 0-5 in the Southeastern Conference.
Felton had an 84-91 record and was in his sixth season at
Georgia. His team won the SEC tournament last year, but was knocked
out of the NCAAs in the first round. He coached five seasons at
Western Kentucky before taking the Georgia job in 2003.
