Dear Colonials Fans,
On Monday, May 9, at 12:00 pm a new era of Colonials Basketball will begin. We would like you to join us as we welcome the newest member of the GW family, Head Men's Basketball Coach Mike Lonergan.
Mike joins us after six successful seasons at the University of Vermont where his teams won four conference championships and averaged over 20 wins per season. His teams advanced to the post-season in four of his six seasons.
Mike has lived most of his life in the Washington, DC area, growing up in Bowie, MD, attending college at Catholic University and serving many successful years as Head Coach at Catholic University including winning a Division III National Championship. After his tenure at Catholic, Mike was an Assistant to Gary Williams at University of Maryland.
Mike's teams have consistently won. In 18 overall seasons they have won 377 games and 10 of his last 12 teams have advanced to the post-season. It is this type of success that brings Mike to GW.
In his tenure at Vermont his basketball student-athletes had a graduation rate of 100%.
The press conference will be held in the Charles E. Smith Center and we hope that you can attend and join us in welcoming Mike. Following the press conference, we invite you to a welcome reception in the Colonials Club.
I look forward to seeing you on this exciting day as we move into the future and "Raise High the Buff and Blue".
