Georgetown University Head Coach
John Thompson III Biography
[[John Thompson III]] was born March 12, 1966 and is the current head coach of the men's basketball team at Georgetown University. He grew up in Washington, D.C. and was named first team All-Metro by The Washington Post while playing for Gonzaga College High School in 1984. Thompson was hired on April 20, 2004 to replace Craig Esherick. Prior to being hired at Georgetown, Thompson was the head coach for four years at his alma mater, Princeton University.
Thompson immediately introduced the Princeton offense at Georgetown, a style of play that he learned from coach Pete Carril at Princeton. The rarity of this style, and Thompson's success at adapting it to work with the brawnier Georgetown players, has been cited by the Washington Post as one of the major reasons for the team's quick turnaround. In Thompson's first year at Georgetown (2004-05), the Hoyas improved from 13-15 to a record of 19-13 and the team reached the quarterfinals of the NIT.
[[John Thompson III]]'s first notable win with the team took place on January 21, 2006, when unranked Georgetown upset No. 1 Duke. This was Georgetown's first win over a No. 1 ranked team in 21 years. Thompson also achieved his 100th win as a head coach a few nights later with an 85-82 win in double overtime at Notre Dame.
