Georgetown Hires Former Star Center, Hall of Famer Patrick Ewing to Coach

Georgetown University basketball legend Patrick Ewing will return to coach the team he led to a national championship as a player in 1984, a source confirmed to NBC Sports.

Ewing replaces John Thompson III, whose father coached Ewing from 1981 to 1985. They took Georgetown to the national championship game three times in four years together, winning the title with a victory over the University of Houston in 1984. That year, Ewing won an Olympic gold medal with the men's national team.

Great hire. Ewing was passed over time and time again for NBA HC gigs.

HE was one of the main reasons why I even watched basketball in the first place and like the team Knicks...
