Georgetown Hires Patrick Ewing As Men's Basketball Coach

Patrick Ewing

His experience as a coach over the last 15 years with some of the best basketball minds in the country has prepared him to lead our program.

"Welcome home @GeorgetownHoops Coach Patrick Ewing!" the university posted on its Twitter feed on Monday after reports of the appointment had surfaced in United States media.

Before finishing the most recent 2016-2017 campaign with a 14-18 record, Georgetown finished the 2015-2016 season with a almost identical 15-18 overall record. After leaving Georgetown, Ewing enjoyed a Hall of Fame NBA career, which includes an NBA Finals appearance and two Olympic gold medals. JT3 reached the Final Four in 2007 but failed to match or exceed that success for the remaining of his tenure until his was sacked late last month after 13 seasons.

Instead, he returns to college, rejoining the program he helped win an NCAA title in 1984 with coach John Thompson Jr.

According to various reports, Ewing will sign a multi-year deal with the school and vacate his position as an assistant with the Charlotte Hornets immediately.

At the Final Four in Glendale, Arizona, college basketball insiders lauded Ewing's basketball acumen and strong ties to Georgetown.

BREAKING: Georgetown has hired Patrick Ewing as head coach, a source confirms.

After Ewing's hall of fame National Basketball Association career ended in 2001, he began his assistant coaching career shortly after his number was retired by the Knicks in 2003. The Big East, then populated by colorful larger-than-life coaches like John Thompson, Rollie Massimino and Lou Carnesecca, was a Dick Vitale-shouted sensation. As most sports fans know, Ewing attended Georgetown University as a collegiate athlete where he dominated the NCAA. Ewing's stints as an assistant coach includes the Washington Wizards, Houston Rockets, Orlando Magic, and Charlotte Hornets.

Most of Ewing's accolades came while he was playing for the New York Knicks. Ewing undoubtedly has the elder Thompson's approval. That an National Basketball Association legend like Ewing can put in this much work, and never once get a shot, is absolutely ridiculous. The Hoyas reached the national championship game three times during Ewing's career.

There's no doubt that Ewing is qualified to be a head coach.

If finalized, Ewing's hire would send ripples across the Big East Conference recruiting landscape.
