It's Official: Mike Lonergan will be the new GW head coach

It looked like GW might have its man, but then Sweaty Gary Williams retired from Maryland, throwing the coaching carousel into a loop -- GWHoopsters wondered if this meant that all the Lanegan, Dooley and all the guys GW was after would look at Maryland instead of Foggy Bottom U.

It all worked out in the end though, as Vermont's Mike Lonergan, formerly coach at Catholic, will be GW's next head coach. I'm pretty happy about it. More to come.

But in honor of this, here's a song by Mark Lanegan (almost Mike Lonergan) and the Screaming Trees, titled appropriately enough, "Nearly Lost You."

(If Kansas assistant and GW alum Joe Dooley became the coach, I would have posted "Tom Dooley.")
