AuburnCurrent coach: Tony BarbeeI'm a little upset they didn't think Pearl would work here. And Howland definitely recruited Georgia well, but he flat out screwed up his home base recruiting. Still, I'd be ecstatic over that kind of hire, if it came down to that.
Replacement: Bruce Pearl
Skinny: This could be a make or break year for Barbee. He's gone just 35-59 in three seasons at Auburn – and Pearl's show-cause penalty from the NCAA ends soon. In Pearl's 19 seasons as a college head coach, he never had a losing season – including six straight NCAA tournament appearances with Tennessee. He could jump at the opportunity.
GeorgiaCurrent coach: Mark Fox
Replacement: Ben Howland
Skinny: This one could be interesting. Fox reached the NCAA tournament back in 2011, but is now coming off back-to-back 15-17 campaigns with the Bulldogs. They're not supposed to do much this season, either. Would Howland be a good fit in Athens? He recruited Georgia well while he was at UCLA and could be looking to get back in the mix.
