I don't really think he lasts though.
My guess is that John Thompson has no say and nor do they care if John approves who they hire.

No offense but you're wrong.

The Thompson family is very involved in the program as they pretty much put the program on the map. Big John has always made strings move behind the scenes, they're worried if they hired anyone else, Big John would be in the background making things hard for that person. They hired Ewing in part that he'd get Coach Thomps approval.

Looking and talking a different way doesn't exclude you from being a capable person.

He's tryin to get an NBa job, last I heard. This move surprised me, but I'm happy for him.

I think it'll be OK.

If he can develop bigs, that would be cool, too. Recruit + develop bigs.

If Big John was worried about what Georgetown Mens BB wants....success.... then Georgetown wouldn't have hired Ewing.

He has no idea how to recruit, has been removed from the college game (player only) for over 30yrs and has never had this much weight put on his shoulders when it comes to coaching.

Unfortunately, it's going to end up ugly and my guess is that Pat is gone in 3yrs or less.

I hope I'm wrong though cause I respect Ewing

This will appease the alums and donors for a couple years but he won't get it done

I hope ewing can produce another okafor atleast or maybe a duncan... it would be great to see him succeed in coaching but he needs someone who can recruit.
