Ewing becomes G'Town's head guy after a 13 year National Basketball Association coaching career, a sojourn that doesn't include head coaching experience.
Ewing is a Georgetown legend.
Before finishing the most recent 2016-2017 campaign with a 14-18 record, Georgetown finished the 2015-2016 season with a almost identical 15-18 overall record.
Ewing starred at Georgetown from 1981 to 1984, averaging 15.3 points, 9.2 rebounds and 3.4 blocks per game over his collegiate career.
JT3 led Georgetown to the Final Four in 2007 but has missed the NCAA Tournament in three of the past four seasons.
John Thompson Jr. coached Ewing at Georgetown, and the pair are still close. He has been the associate coach for the Charlotte Hornets since 2013 and was widely expected to eventually become a head coach in the National Basketball Association.

Game of Thrones Season 7 trailer: Cersei seized the Iron Throne
Although Cersei Lannister ( Lena Heady ) is peacefully reclining on the throne in the Red Keep, her position doesn't look stable. Ever since its release, it has a massive worldwide fan following and has bagged various awards over the last couple of years.

Earlier this month HBO revealed the highly anticipated Game of Thrones season 7 release date through a melting iceblock stunt. To add a little extra fuel to the wildfire of hype, HBO has released next season's first trailer.
Many in the coaching community have long believed that there is a stigma against big men, and the wait that Ewing, an Olympian and one of the NBA's 50 greatest players, had to endure provides plenty of evidence.
While many big-name players find the path from playing to coaching relatively seamless, Ewing has had to work for this chance.
For now, though, Georgetown will be praised for finally giving Ewing an opportunity to run his own team, and Ewing, being the massively popular personality fans love to recall dunking in the Garden and over Phi Slamma Jamma, will be celebrated. The Houston Rockets, Orlando Magic and Washington Wizards interviewed him for head coaching jobs but declined to hire him. The former athlete played for him from 1982 to '85, guiding the program to three national championship game appearances and one title.
Readers, what are your thoughts on Georgetown hiring Ewing? Ewing undoubtedly has the elder Thompson's approval. Imagine how painful that must have been for Ewing to know that he'd done everything the right way; learning since 2002 as an assistant coach and no one was interested in his services.
Per Woj, the 54-year-old is well-prepared and already has plans to pursue some high-level college assistants. It can be a mistake to try to recapture past glory by making a move like this, but in this case, Ewing has proven that he deserves a head coaching job.
