Although it may be done by the time this blog post hits, Paul Hewitt's time at Georgia Tech must come to an end. Being a Georgia fan I would love to see him stay around, as Mark Fox is doing a great job and UGA is becoming nationally relevant in basketball again. Looking back at it, Hewitt might have wished he left to go to St. John's, but he stayed to continue to try to improve the Tech program. I am sure it had nothing to do with the buyout or his large annual salary. Tech has looked at times this season to quit on themselves and Hewitt, the ACC tourney game the other night against VaTech was another example of that. I turned the game on with 5 or 6 minutes left and Tech had 35 points, 15 fg and 14 turnovers. It is time for some new blood at Tech and I believe Tech will do what it must do this time, regardless of the hefty buyout, and release Hewitt.
It must be done by this Wednesday to avoid the contract rolling over, so that date will be closely watched by all Tech fans for sure.
