Paul Hewitt: No to St. Johns; Buyout Next?

Much to the dismay of many Georgia Tech basketball faithful, Paul Hewitt has turned down an opportunity to be the head coach at St. Johns University. Hewitt, a native of New York, decided he would rather remain in the good ole South as opposed to returning home to coach. He has been the Jackets' head man for ten years now, and a lot of the alumni and supporters feel that he has overstayed his welcome. If Tech wants Hewitt out, it looks like they will have to pay that big buy-out clause in his contract. No one denies the fact that Hewitt can flat our recruit, but many believe his 'game' and 'floor' coaching leave a bit to be desired. In other words, the Techie Nation doesn't feel that the coach gets all the effort and talent out of his players. As a Bulldog, I kind of like the style of his underachieving hard court guys. Once UGA coach Mark Fox gets his talent up to par with Tech's, the Bulldog Nation believes Fox will have Hewitt for lunch. It might not taste so good, but won't that box score look Divine!
