Tech Lets Hewitt Nose Around … Wonder Why?

By Jeff Rapp, March 23rd, 2010

St. John’s officials have received permission to speak about the
school’s coaching vacancy with Georgia Tech’s Paul Hewitt, a New York
native who might be willing to move back home after 10 seasons in
Atlanta.

Hewitt has made five NCAA tournaments — including the
2004 national title game — but endured criticism in recent years
because of a lack of postseason success. A source told CBSSports.com
that no meeting is yet scheduled and that the parties will not meet
Tuesday. Wednesday is more likely, according to the source.

St.
John’s fired Norm Roberts last week.

Hewitt led Georgia Tech to a
23-13 record this season.

The Yellow Jackets, of course, lost to Ohio State
in the second round of the NCAA tournament and looked the part of an undisciplined team with 21 turnovers, 24 fouls and several ill-advised shots.

It’s safe to say some Jacket fans wouldn’t be sad to see this develop further.
