There's no "K" in quit. But former Illini KU Singh is trying awfully hard to make that the case.

Singh, most recently with Georgia men's tennis, quit on the Bulldogs less than a week before the NCAA tournament started. In a statement to 247sports, Singh said he had personal differences with Georgia coach Manual Diaz. He informed Diaz of his decision to leave, then headed home for India. He was the No. 4 singles player in the country. Georgia will use Australian freshman Ben Wagland in their No. 1 singles spot in this weekend's Sweet 16 in Urbana.

Singh also left Illinois three years ago. He said in multiple reports that he wanted a "fresh start" at the time.

The former Illini will now focus on his professional tennis career, and is reportedly back in home in India.
