The University of Georgia fired head coach Jim Harrick this afternoon, and has agreed not to participate in either the SEC or NCAA tournaments. The Bulldogs are now the fifth school to have imposed self-discipline before receiving a likely punishment from the NCAA, and are the third team to have passed on a certain trip to the tournament (Michigan and Fresno State being the others). As of today, Georgia is fourth in the RPI ranking, having played what was arguably the toughest schedule in the country.

UPDATE: Jumped the gun a bit, I'm afraid. Georgia has suspended Harrick with pay while it investigates the allegations, but it has not fired him yet.
