The Georgia Bulldogs took the unusual step of responding to speculation about coach Tom Crean’s job security on Saturday morning.

On Friday night, Dawg Sports reported that the school was considering firing Crean for cause following a reported physical altercation between two assistant coaches. Assistant coach Wade Mason and director of player personnel Brian Fish reportedly fought at halftime of a recent game against LSU, which led to Mason being suspended. Crean was contractually obligated to report the incident to university officials, but reports claim that someone other than Crean did so. That, according to the report, is enough for Georgia to prepare to fire Crean with cause, which would keep Georgia from having to pay the coach a $3.6 million buyout.
