Mason tabs Hewitt to lead basketball program

Former Georgia Tech coach Paul Hewitt will be announced as the new coach at George Mason, school officials confirmed Saturday.

Hewitt, 47, has a 255-187 record in 14 seasons as a Division I head coach, including a 189-160 record in 11 seasons at Georgia Tech. Hewitt led the Yellow Jackets to the 2004 Final Four and has been to five NCAA Tournaments as a head coach, including one at Siena, where his teams were 66-27 in his three seasons.

Hewitt was fired by Georgia Tech after posting back-to-back-to-back losing seasons in Atlanta, including a 13-18 campaign in 2010-2011.

Hewitt succeeds Jim Larranaga, who was hired by Miami.
