OPINION: Georgetown, Please Don’t Overpay for John Thompson’s Choice

It’s been 5 days since the Georgetown Hoyas and Patrick Ewing have gone their separate ways and, as expected, a new coach has not been publicly announced. Nevertheless, based on news and rumors, it looks like Georgetown may intend to make an offer to Ed Cooley once Providence’s season is officially over. While Cooley is a fine basketball coach and dynamic communicator, the question is whether Georgetown President Jack DeGioia and the hiring committee have tunnel vision for this coach with deep ties to John Thompson, Jr.

There are other candidates that would be less expensive, including one that happens to be one of the greatest college coaches of all-time.
