Hewitt hired at George Mason University

It didn’t take Paul Hewitt long to resurface as a college basketball coach.

He goes from a big-time program to one of college basketball’s top mid-major teams.

George Mason lost a Final Four coach in Jim Larranaga to the Miami Hurricanes and gains another Final Four coach in return.

The Patriots hired former Georgia Tech coach Paul Hewitt over the weekend.

Hewitt was fired by the Yellow Jackets in March. He took Georgia Tech to the Final Four in 2004 and was 190-162 over 11 years at the Atlanta, Georgia school, but was only 72-104 in the always-tough ACC.

The 47-year-old Hewitt went 13-18 last season and the administration felt it was time for a change. He is receiving a $7.2 million buyout over five years from Georgia Tech.

Larranaga leaves George Mason to coach Miami Hurricanes

Jim Larranaga surprised the college basketball world when he left the George Mason University program to take the University of Miami Hurricanes coaching job.

The Patriots had always had a decent program, but in 14 years Larranaga helped bring national prominence to the program with several upsets including an improbable drive to the Final Four in 2006. George Mason is considered to be one of the major powers in mid-major college basketball.

Larranaga replaces Frank Haith, who left to coach the Missouri Tigers.

The 61-year-old Larranaga, led the Patriots to five NCAA tournament appearances and went 273-164. This season his team went 27-7 and reached the third round of the tournament before losing to Ohio State up in Cleveland, Ohio.

BOYS HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL Tournament action: Out-of-sync Northland survives scrappy Olentangy Liberty

Game report from George Cleveland

Northland did not play like a #2 seed in the Ohio High School Athletic Association tournament action in Division I.

The 22-1 Vikings were shaky, lethargic and full of mistakes in a 59-52 win over Olentangy Liberty.

Northland led 16-8 at the end of the first quarter, 28-25 at halftime, 39-35 at the end of the 3rd quarter. They never could shake off the Patriots (16-7) entirely.

The Patriots, a team that plays quick defense and can shoot 3′s, never looked intimidated at all in the contest at the Ohio Expo Center Coliseum.

Trey Burke scored 20 points for Northland and teammate Jalen Robinson chipped in with 13 and pulled down 10 rebounds.

Jake Bischoff led Liberty with 17 points.

Northland will play Westerville Central, who upset Upper Arlington, in the District final this week.

Belichick named NFL Coach of the Year

New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft still recalls the day that his organization traded a #1 draft choice to the New York Jets for the right to sign Bill Belichick as their head coach. He said people thought he and the Patriots were nuts.

Then Belichick goes out and is 5-11 in his first season at New England and the fans began to wonder themselves. But all of that is history as he is one of the NFL’s top head coaches.

The Patriots coach won the Associated Press 2010 NFL Coach of the Year award, the third time he has earned the  honor.

Belichick, who also was selected in 2003 and 2007, trails only Don Shula, a four-time winner of the award.

The controversial Belichick led the Patriots to a 14-2 record, the best in the NFL and beat out Tampa Bay’s Raheem Morris for the award.

Belichick has four 14-win regular seasons, no other coach has accomplished that mark. His .716 career winning percentage of .716 ranks eighth which ties him with Hall of Famer Paul Brown.

He is 126-50 overall and 14-5 in the playoffs with New England.
