The other finalist for the University of Georgia head coaching job following the Jim Harrick fiasco was Tim Floyd. The rumor at the time was the UGA got very close to offering the former Chicago Bulls and Iowa State head coaching the job; however, some combination of Dooley, Damon and Adams got cold feet.
Dennis Felton was hired instead.
I'm sure Adams will gladly take credit for that decision now that Tim Floyd has resigned from Southern Cal in the wake of the O.J. Mayo recruiting scandal.
Had Floyd been hired here, I always thought he would've bolted after the first year rather than face the staggeringly huge rebuilding job of Year 2 Post-Harrick. Had he stuck around at UGA long enough to pull the stunts he allegedly pulled at Southern Cal to land Mayo, the NCAA would've thrown our basketball program under the jail.
One of the few good bounces for our basketball program over the past six years not involving tornadoes. Thank you Coach Felton for not leaving us on probation.
