Hoya coach returns to AU
Mike Brennan must be referred to as a former Hoya assistant coach coach, as after four seasons he retiurns to American University, this time as head man.
Brennan was an assistant coach there between 2007-2009. Prior to that, Brennan served as an assistant at his alma mater, Princeton, where he coached under G'Town head coach John Thompson III.
Thompson, to the Washington Post, on his colleague's ascension: "I'm extremely happy for him I know he'll do a terrific job. His world is changing today."
Brennan, in that same report, noted "I think that I wanted to work at a place like American University" as "It's a unique place."
The American Eagles went 10-20 overall, 5-9 in the Patriot League, coached by Jeff Jones, now at Old Dominion. Brennan was on Jones' staff who made back-to-back NCAA Tournament appearances.
AU loses seven seniors this year, giving Brennan roster flexibility, though the talent pool has obviously thinned by now.
His Georgetown replacement is unknown at this time, but will surely be identified before the next open recruiting period, in June.
On the staff currently, Scott Greenman and Othella Harrington could be options.
