Syracuse foe Georgetown introduces Ewing as coach

Perception goes a long way in making these decisions, as the head coach in most cases is the second-most recognizable face in an organization, behind the star player. "I mean, I've always thought about coming back into the city".

"I think it's good for Georgetown, it's good for the league".

And then the phone rang Monday morning.

"To hire a head coach with this depth of coaching experience and personal achievements is tremendous", athletic director Lee Reed said. But Ewing finally landed a much-deserved a head gig. But if there is one thing that you can expect will ring true, it is those words from Ewing.

Former Knicks legend Patrick Ewing is headed back to his alma mater Georgetown to become the Hoyas next basketball coach, CBS Sports reports.

To be fair, John Thompson III was never on his father's staff during the elder Thompson's 26-season reign at the school. Esherick was on the bench as an assistant for the glory days in the 1980s and '90s. It's to modernize the brand, put it on the cutting edge of basketball and add to the tradition rather than survive on it. For day one, that just what the fans and the program needed.

Going forward, I'll be rooting for Ewing. "I know what I want". The game has definitely changed. More ball movement, body movement. "They've been through already what you're going through".

The Congress had formed a committee headed by Sharma to select candidates for elections to Delhi's three municipal corporations. Among the names in the second list was Mukesh Goel, now the Leader of the Opposition in the North Delhi Municipal Corporation.

"I took every opportunity to try and improve on my abilities and to learn and make sure that, if and when I got an opportunity to be a head coach, that I'm prepared". There are now zero ex-centers serving as National Basketball Association head coaches, and ironically the last two-Bill Cartwright with the Bulls and Herb Williams with the Knicks-were Ewing's teammates in NY. Ewing has spent 15 years waiting for this opportunity, working to prove he can be a head coach at the highest levels of this sport whenever he was given a chance to do so. Was it because he had to testify in 2001 about receiving sexual favors during the Atlanta Gold Club trial?

Three decades later, Ewing is the Big Man on Campus again.

"Well, you know what, there's a lot of young guys in the NBA", Ewing said. Then Rivers was Ewing's coach with Orlando in 2001-02. But he also challenged himself to be more than a big man's coach and requested to assist in other ways. He can talk with point guards about the nuances of an offensive system. His experience as a coach over the last 15 years with some of the best basketball minds in the country has prepared him to lead our program. In addition, Ewing has developed an appreciation for analytics. And that came through for us loud and clear.

"It's such a long time ago, but times flies", Mullin said. His only National Basketball Association experience came over seven games and 19 minutes with New Orleans in the 2010-2011 season. He was recruited into the position by Korn Ferry. Looking forward to seeing them next year when we play them. "It's a new era now".

It's a new Ewing, too.

"Patrick's commitment to Georgetown and to further animating our legacy of excellence is inspiring", said university president John J. DeGioia. JT3 had that Final Four run early in his regime. And if Ewing worked that hard there was no excuse for anyone else to give less. Tomorrow, we'll see. The rebuild task is daunting.

He's ready. Don't mess with him, man.
