Fox Adds Three to Staff

From UGA Athletics...

University of Georgia basketball coach Mark Fox on Tuesday announced the completion of his first Bulldog staff with the hiring of three new support personnel: Director of Basketball Operations Kent Davison; Operations Coordinator Mark Pope and Graduate Assistant Todd Okeson.

Additionally, Fox said that Cory Cason will return for the 2010 season as the team's Graduate Manager, a position that he held last season.

The three most recent additions to the Georgia staff reflect different stages of Fox's career within the game of basketball. Davison coached Fox in the late 1980's at Garden City Community College in Kansas. Pope played collegiately for two seasons at the University of Washington, where Fox got his start as an assistant coach. Lastly, Okeson was recruited by Fox to play at Nevada when Fox was the Wolf Pack's Associate Head Coach.

"I think we've added three very bright and energetic people to our staff," Fox said. "A head coach is only as good as his staff, and we've been able to put together a group that, I believe, will really be an asset to our program, and also to the University."

Didn't Mark Pope transfer to or from Kentucky at some point in his career?
