Georgetown’s Ewing picks coaching staff: Orr, Kirby, Waheed
WASHINGTON (AP) — Nearly three months after he was introduced as Georgetown’s new basketball coach, Patrick Ewing has a staff of assistants and recruiters: Louis Orr, Robert Kirby and Akbar Waheed.
The school announced Ewing’s choices on Monday.
Orr was the head coach at Bowling Green from 2007-14, at Seton Hall from 2001-06 and at Siena in 2000-01. He and Ewing were NBA teammates with the New York Knicks.
Kirby returns to Georgetown, where he worked for John Thompson III from 2010-12. He was at LSU last season and has more than 30 years of experience as an assistant in Division I.
Waheed was kept on Georgetown’s staff by Ewing after originally arriving as an assistant under Thompson last year. Thompson was fired in March after 13 seasons, one Final Four appearance, and just one trip the Big Dance in the past four years.
