Georgia has scheduled a Thursday press conference to announce the firing of Dennis Felton, a source close to the coach confirmed to CBSSports.com.
The decision comes after the Bulldogs lost 83-57 to Florida on Wednesday night.
It was their seventh consecutive defeat.
Georgia is 0-5 in the SEC.
The reality is that this move would've been made last season had Felton not led Georgia to an improbable run through the SEC tournament, which led to an automatic berth in the NCAA tournament and a vote of confidence from Georgia athletic director Damon Evans. Short of that, Felton would've never even started this season, and because multiple sources have told CBSSports.com that VCU's Anthony Grant would've been the top target last March -- one prominent industry source went to so far as to say "it was done," meaning he believed Grant would've accepted a fair offer -- you can rest assured the Billy Donovan protégé will also be at or near the top of Georgia's wish-list again.
This development means two SEC jobs are now open.
Alabama is the other.
Grant's name has been mentioned there, too.
