Thad Matta, the former Ohio State coach, turned down Georgia's five-year offer of at least $16 million on Wednesday. "Unfortunately, I just don't feel that I am completely ready at this point to give Greg McGarity and the University of Georgia what they deserve".

The Bulldogs are searching for a replacement for Mark Fox. "It's truly a special place, and he is a tremendous leader I would have loved to work for".

It remains to be seen if Crean would get a similar offer to the reported $16 million that Georgia offered Matta.

It was no secret Matta was interviewing, apparently.

Georgia athletic director Greg McGarity did not respond to an interview request Wednesday.

Giggs also revealed that Reading midfielder David Edwards had retired from worldwide football. Giggs added: "You want your best players and Gareth is a tremendous player".

The Bulldogs could turn their search to former Marquette and IN coach Tom Crean, who has worked as an ESPN analyst this season. He took the Buckeyes to seven straight NCAA Tournaments, reaching the Final Four and Elite Eight once, as well as two other Sweet Sixteen appearances.

He has also reportedly drawn interest from Pittsburgh, who recently parted ways with second-year head coach Kevin Stallings after going winless in ACC play this season.

It was a bit of a surprise on the heels of Matta mutually agreeing to leave Ohio State largely because of recruiting concerns over his ailing back and health.

Matta's overall record is 439-154.

Georgia earned only two NCAA bids in Fox's tenure, losing in the first round in 2011 and 2015.
