Last month, Georgetown University fired their head basketball coach; John Thompson, III, after 12 years at the helm. He took over from his father John Thompson, II. It was Coach John Thompson II that led Georgetown to their first National Championship, and that team was led by All American Center Patrick Ewing.
Yesterday, Georgetown Athletic Department filled that Coaching vacancy when they announced that Patrick Ewing would be the next head coach at The University.
Ewing played at Georgetown from 1981-1985 making two National Championship appearances, losing one to Michael Jordan and the North Carolina Tar Heels, and winning one Championship.
Three decades later, Ewing is the Big Man on Campus again.
