Georgetown has hired former star player Patrick Ewing to be the school's new head coach, the team announced. For a brief window of time the Big East was the biggest show in the country and Ewing of Georgetown and Mullin of St. John's were the faces of the conference. Come next season, when the focus has shifted to the fact that this still-celebrated program has failed to draw interest from any of its local talent and missed three of the past four NCAA tournaments, we'll see how the legacy choice works out. During his time at Georgetown from 1981-85, Ewing led the school to three NCAA championship appearances and a title.
He was now serving as an associate head coach for the Charlotte Hornets. He went on to say how Georgetown is still his home and how great an honor it is for him to become his alma mater's next head coach.

Whether Patrick Ewing can reverse that trend will depend on how well he adjusts to the recruiting trail.

It appears, instead of waiting around for an NBA head coaching opportunity, he jumped at a college one - which actually follows a recent hiring trend in college basketball.
Now, Georgetown has gotten rid of JT3 but replaced him with the best college player the elder Thompson ever coached. Is the hiring of Ewing a ideal match for the Georgetown Hoyas, or a step in the wrong direction? Ewing is the all-time leader in total rebounds (1,316), most blocked shots (493) and most games played (143). In one particular instance, after nearly being plunked by an orange thrown from the stands, Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim grabbed a microphone and threatened to forfeit the game if his fans did anything like that again.
