Hoopdirt reporting that Charlotte Hornets assistant coach Patrick Ewing to be hired by Georgetown


Risky hire.  I hope it works out for them, but it's not a hire I'd have made.
Reported to have offered Chris Mack $4 million per year before going with alum Ewing.

Nothing against, Ewing, but this looks like an approaching train wreck. Kinda like the one at St. Johns after they hired one of their beloved, hallowed and revered alums, Chris Mullin.

Had to go back to jog my memory about why Steve Lavin and St. John's parted ways.  Reminded that over the course of several days it was reported that Lavin and SJU were working on a 3-year extension, followed by news that the extension was being finalized, and then he's being fired!  Apparently had to do with money for the most part.


Anyway, here's a list of the 41 coaching changes that have taken place so far.

Steve Fisher announces his retirement from San Diego State after leading the Aztecs for 18 seasons. Will be succeeded by longtime assistant and designated "coach in waiting" Brian Dutcher.

Seems to be the day to say "good bye" to 18 season coaches as Oral Roberts dismisses Scott Sutton. Gotta think that several recent subpar seasons plus fact ORU doesn't seem to be a serious candidate for membership in the Missouri Valley - ORU on 2nd stint in the Summit League after missing out on MVC when Creighton left for the Big East - were factors in this move.

Sounds like Lobos had a time finding someone as Joe Dooley (FGCU), Steve Forbes (East Tennessee), Scott Cross (UT Arlington) and James Borrego (NBA Spurs assistant) were mentioned as candidates before Weir took the position. In addition, read that UNM athletics is running a $1.5 million deficit, no doubt in part due to falling attendance at the Pit.

Former Maryland standout and NBA player Juan Dixon is the new coach of Coppin State in Baltimore. Spent last season as the HC of the women's team at D-II District of Columbia and as special assistant to Mark Turgeon at Maryland prior to that.

Also within the MEAC, interim HC Lamont Franklin has resigned at Florida A&M.

Jeff Goodman reporting that Dalonte Hill has been hired as an assistant by new Austin Peay coach Matt Figger. Both served as assistants under Frank Martin at K-State.

 Per the following, Hill claims to have stopped drinking last year:

Dalonte won't get a lot of sympathy around here but if he's conquered his drinking, good for him.

Other lists pretty much mirror those named by Thamel. Notable additions include OKC Thunder coach Billy Donovan and Golden State Warriors assistant Mike Brown.

This could set up a chain of changes over the next few weeks.  It is very late to be making a change.

This will likely put our previous coach back on the market.

From what I've read, Buckeyes AD Gene Smith was concerned about several things that had been trending negatively - recruiting (especially within state of Ohio and Midwest), player retention (all 5 members of lauded 2015 class ranked #5 by 247Sports no longer with program), Matta's health (bad back and limited use of right foot), conference standing (finishes of 5th, 6th, 7th and 10th the past 4 seasons) and postseason (last NCAA bid in 2015).

Some people have speculated that if any program could snatch chris mack away from xavier it would be ohio state. I guess we'll find out how true that idea is.
