CHICAGO – Earlier today, reports came out from Stadium’s Jeff Goodman that Georgetown is targeting Penn State head coach Micah Shrewsberry for its head coach opening.
Penn State will compete in the Big Ten Championship and is expected to make the NCAA Tournament in just the second year under Shrewsberry.
Following Penn State’s win over Indiana, Micah Shrewsberry commented on the reports
‘I’m completely tunnel visioned on our team and State [College] High basketball,” Shrewsberry said. “I’m happy to be here. Nobody wanted me a few years ago. I’m happy to be here. I love our guys.”
Georgetown recently fired its coach Patrick Ewing. Ewing coached the program to a 75-109 record in six years.
Shrewsberry has also been linked to the Notre Dame job after the firing of Mike Brey.
Shrewsberry spent 20 years as an assistant for Purdue, Celtics, Butler, DePauw, and Wabash.
The future looks bright for Penn State under Shrewsberry, and losing him would be detrimental to the program. It is now in the hands of the university to keep Shrewsberry in State College.
