Gary Parrish is reporting that former Hoyas assistant coach Robert Burke will be named the head coach of Mount St. Mary's.
Burke spent five years next to Thompson on the Georgetown bench before leaving abruptly last year. Some speculate he was fired, I tend to agree. Burke landed at American, taking the position of Mike Brennan, who came to Georgetown, in some sort of
wife coach swap.
All three of the original Thompson the Third assistants have now had head coaching experience: Sydney Johnson leads Princeton, Kevin Broadus destroyed Binghamton, and Robert Burke will sit at the helm of Mount St. Mary's.
(Note: For those that don't remember Burke, here is an absurdly large headshot of him courtesy of AU.)
