RENO, Nev. — Nevada athletic director Cary Groth says longtime assistant David Carter will replace Mark Fox as basketball coach.
Fox told reporters during the announcement of his hiring at Georgia on Friday morning that he expected Carter to get the job. Groth made it official at a news conference in Reno that afternoon.
The 42-year-old Carter has been an assistant at Nevada since then-coach Trent Johnson hired him in 1999. He was elevated to associate head coach in 2004 when Johnson was hired by Stanford and Fox took his place.
Carter also served as an assistant at Eastern Washington and Saint Mary’s, his alma mater, where he played in the late 1980s and was inducted into the school’s athletic hall of fame.
