Head Coach Mark Fox
Oct. 7, 2013
ATHENS --- Former NBA head coach Keith Smart will be the featured speaker when Georgia Bulldog basketball coach Mark Fox hosts his fifth annual coaches' clinic on Saturday, October 26 at Stegeman Coliseum.
Scholastic basketball coaches from all levels are invited to register and attend the day-long clinic. The schedule includes lectures, demonstrations and discussions that revolve around Georgia's pre-season practice that day.
"Our staff is excited to offer the clinic as an opportunity to meet and get to know as many coaches as possible," Fox said. "We are always looking to share philosophies and exchange ideas. The clinic is a terrific setting in which to see many of the coaches around Georgia and learn how we all teach the game of basketball."
Smart, the hero of Indiana's 1987 NCAA championship team, has served stints as a head coach of three NBA teams: Cleveland (2003), Golden State (2011) and Sacramento (2012-13). A native of Baton Rouge, La., he first played collegiately at Garden City Community College (1984-85) under UGA's current Director of Basketball Operations, Kent Davison.
Cost for the clinic is $15, which includes lunch.
