Hoyas legend Patrick Ewing to interview with Georgetown officials on Monday
Ewing is considered a serious candidate to coach his alma mater
Georgetown legend Patrick Ewing is scheduled to meet with school officials Monday about becoming the basketball coach at his alma mater, a source told CBS Sports.
Ewing arrived in Washington on Sunday.
He’s currently the associate head coach of the NBA’s Hornets. The Hornets play the Wizards Tuesday inside the Verizon Center. That’s also Georgetown’s home court. Ewing, 54, starred at Georgetown from 1981 through 1985. He led the Hoyas to three national championship games -- and the 1984 NCAA Tournament title -- before becoming an 11-time NBA All-Star with the Knicks. Ewing was enshrined into the Naismith Memorial Hall of Fame in 2008. He’s been an NBA assistant for 15 years.
that Georgetown has already been rejected by Notre Dame coach Mike Brey and Texas coach Shaka Smart. Both were approached but neither seriously considered the job, a source said.
Georgetown fired John Thompson III last month.
