Patrick Ewing returns to Georgetown

He’s back! According to The Vertical, former Georgetown star and Hall of Famer Patrick Ewing will be the next head coach at Georgetown. He will replace John Thompson III. Ewing, who was the associate head coach for the Charlotte Hornets, had been an assistant for many years on the NBA level.

This is a great opportunity for Ewing. An opportunity to bring his alma mater back to prominence, and an opportunity to prove that he can be a successful head coach.



Ewing to Georgetown?

Georgetown University fired their head coach John Thompson III today. Thompson III spent 13 years at Georgetown. 

According to Adrian Wojnarowski, former Georgetown great and Charlotte Hornets’ associate head coach Patrick Ewing may have a level of interest in Georgetown, but Ewing is said to want a NBA job. It makes perfect sense for Ewing to return to Georgetown. He might be the greatest player in the history of Georgetown basketball. However, Wojnarowski points out that Ewing’s son was on Thompson III’s staff, and Ewing is loyal to the Thompson family. 

Hopefully, Ewing can get a NBA coaching job in the near future.
