Patrick Ewing’s Son Can’t Join Georgetown Staff Because Of Nepotism Clause

Patrick Ewing will not be adding his son to his staff with the Georgetown basketball program.

In an ironic twist, the Hoyas apparently have a nepotism clause that prohibits the addition of Ewing’s son. The news comes from Dan Steinberg of the Washington Post.

It’s a bit bizarre because Ewing is replacing John Thompson III, who was the replacement for his father, John Thompson Jr. Thompson Jr. coached Ewing and had a big part in the hiring of Thompson III as the Hoyas head coach over a decade ago.

Now, suddenly, Georgetown is no longer a family business.

How about them apples?
