Georgetown hires Patrick Ewing as men's basketball coach

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Former Georgetown Hoya Patrick Ewing is going back to his home turf to serve as the head coach of the men's basketball team, ESPN reports.

During his time in the NBA, Ewing was an 11-time All-Star, Rookie of the Year 1986, a seven-time All-NBA selection, and a two-time Olympic gold medalist.

JT3 led Georgetown to the Final Four in 2007 but has missed the NCAA Tournament in three of the past four seasons.

There was speculation that the gig might go to Notre Dame's Mike Brey, a protege of Thompson's biggest rival.

Ewing has been an assistant coach with the Hornets and had hoped for years to land a head coaching job in the pros.

It was announced early Monday that Patrick Ewing planned to take a formal interview with his Alma Mater, Georgetown.

While Fed officials were prepared for a weak first-quarter GDP reading, they believed any slowdown in the first quarter was temporary.

Sources: Patrick Ewing has a multi-year deal to become Georgetown's coach.

Since his retirement as a player, Ewing has been an assistant with the Washington Wizards, Houston Rockets, Orlando Magic and now with the Charlotte Bobcats. The Georgetown Hoyas hiring of Patrick Ewing could cause a shift in power on the NCAA landscape.

And now, some 14 years into his coaching career, Ewing will finally get a chance to have a team that is under his full control. Forty of the past 45 Georgetown basketball seasons have started with a Thompson on the bench as head coach, the exception being the 5 1/2-year Craig Esherick era after he took over from the elder Thompson during the 1998-99 season.

Here is Mike Francesa the day John Thompson III was sacked, informing us that Patrick Ewing has "ZERO" chance to be the Georgetown coach!

Per Woj, the 54-year-old is well-prepared and already has plans to pursue some high-level college assistants. "To hire a head coach with this depth of coaching experience and personal achievements is tremendous". He said that he had been working hard to become a head coach for quite a few years and he cannot wait to return to the Hilltop. In fact in 2014, the beloved New York Knicks, the same Knicks were Ewing dominated inside the paint, overlooked the star center in favor of newly retired point guard Derek Fisher.
