Esherick Lauds 2007 Hoyas

Ousted Esherick proud of his Hoyas

The coach who persuaded Jeff Green and Roy Hibbert to come to Georgetown can only watch from a distance and wonder what might have been. While the two juniors have led the Hoyas back to the national stage and become arguably the most popular students on campus, the man who recruited them was chased away three years ago this month as students and alumni were on the verge of revolt. Craig Esherick was fired on March 16, 2004, the day before a protest rally was scheduled to take place in front of the university president’s office. Organizers, upset over the Hoyas’ worst season in 31 years, had collected some 3,700 signatures on a petition calling for the coach’s dismissal.
