    Reports: Ed Cooley on verge of taking Georgetown post

    Providence coach Ed Cooley is expected to become the head basketball coach at Georgetown, multiple outlets reported Monday.

    An announcement, barring an 11th-hour change of heart by Cooley, is expected later Monday.

    Cooley, 53, just completed his 12th season at Providence. His Friars were bounced from the NCAA Tournament by Kentucky in the first round. It was the Friars’ seventh trip to the tournament under Cooley.

    He is 242-153 at Providence and 334-222 overall in 17 seasons as a head coach. He led Fairfield from 2006-11 before taking the Providence job in 2011.

    Cooley would replace Patrick Ewing, who was fired earlier this month after six seasons at his alma mater.

    The Hoyas went 7-25 (2-18 Big East) in Ewing’s final season in charge. The program went a combined 75-109 under Ewing, making the NCAA Tournament just once — when Georgetown completed an improbable run through the 2021 Big East tournament as the No. 8 seed to earn the league’s automatic bid.
