High marks with Jim Harrick
Former Georgia head coach Jim Harrick led the Bulldogs to back-to-back NCAA tournament appearances in 2001 and 2002, and seemed destined for a third consecutive trip as the team entered the SEC tournament with a 19-8 record. Promise soon turned to peril. Harrick and son Jim Jr., an assistant coach, were found guilty of providing players with A's in classes they never attended and paying for various expenses, including long-distance phone calls. Jim Jr. was fired, and the elder Harrick resigned just days later.
