Patrick Ewing Will Be The Head Coach of Georgetown University Basketball

From the moment Georgetown announced the dismissal of John Thompson III, it was clear the greatest challenge the school faced in making its next hire was straddling the Hoyas' storied past and moving them into the future as well.

Ewing has been an assistant coach with the NBA's Charlotte Hornets and had hoped for years to land a head coaching job in the pros. Ewing replaces John Thompson III who was sacked after 13 seasons.

Their eighth-place finish in the conference meant the Hoyas missed the postseason for the first time under Thompson.

Trump urges former adviser Flynn to cut immunity deal
Four other Trump associates have come forward in recent weeks, saying they would talk to the committees. President Donald Trump tweeted early Friday that Flynn was right to ask for immunity.

Hornets owner Michael Jordan said he was "overjoyed" for Ewing. If true, that would immediately launch Ewing, who has never been a head coach on any level, among the game's top paid coaches.

College basketball was on the minds of many NBA players Monday, and not just because of the NCAA men's national championship game. But now, news confirmed by ESPN that NBA Hall of Famer Patrick Ewing is returning to Georgetown three decades after he began his rise to stardom has lit up the web - and with good reason.

After a decorated career at Georgetown, including a national title in 1984 and two other appearances in the championship game, Ewing played 17 seasons in the NBA, 15 with the Knicks before wrapping up with stints in Seattle and Orlando.

With the Hornets, Patrick Ewing has served under Steve Clifford as the associate head coach. "Georgetown is my home and it is a great honor for me to return to my alma mater and serve as the next head coach".

Congratulations to Georgetown on hiring Patrick Ewing. The jury is still out on Patrick Ewing as a head coach and a college recruiter. Villanova, Butler, Creighton, Seton Hall, Marquette and Xavier all made appearances in the NCAA tournament this year, so the Big East is no stranger to winning basketball formulas.

Ewing played for Thompson's father, John Thompson Jr. 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. "It is a thrill to have him come back to his alma mater and continue the legacy of tradition and success he had as a student-athlete on the Hilltop".
