Former New York Knicks legend Patrick Ewing has worked hard to prepare for his first head coaching opportunity. Since retiring from the NBA, Ewing spent 15 years as an assistant coach for the Wizards, Bobcats (Hornets) and Magic. Finally, in 2017 Ewing's alma mater Georgetown University tabbed him as the head coach of their men's basketball program. It was truly a dream come true for the NBA Hall of Famer. Dreams eventually end.

From 1981 - 1985, Ewing led the Hoyas to college basketball glory. Playing for legendary college coach John Thompson, Jr. the former Naismith Player of the Year led Georgetown to the NCAA championship game in 3 out of his 4 years. Surprisingly, Georgetown only won one of those 3 of those NCAA finals during Patrick Ewing's time at the Big East basketball power, defeating Houston in 1984. The former first-round pick never won an NBA championship. Ewing hoped to bring another championship from the sidelines of Georgetown.

Things have not gone well during Patrick Ewing's tenure at the Big East university. Following a .500 regular season in 2021, the Hoyas made a tremendous run and won the Big East Tournament. That was Ewing's only appearance in the NCAA tournament as a head coach. In six seasons, as of Tuesday, Georgetown is 73-99 under the former Knicks' center. Alumni have been calling for a change since last spring when the Hoyas finished a dismal 6-25. That was the worst season for Georgetown since John Magee guided the Hoyas to a 3-23 record in 1972, prior to being fired. Can the Hoyas legend survive another brutal season?

The way things are going this season at 5-15 so far, it is not likely Patrick Ewing will be coaching this team next season. Georgetown will certainly allow one of the university's most recognizable stars to step down gracefully. The 60 year-old Ewing will need another big run in the Big East Tournament and possibly an NCAA win to keep his job. If Ewing wants to continue coaching, there are plenty of college programs that would welcome the Hall of Fame player, regardless of his coaching record.
