Patrick Ewing Hoping for Head Coaching Gig

Magic assistant coach Patrick Ewing, whose contract expires at the end of the season, said he has his sights set on getting an interview for a head coaching job this offseason.

The field may never be more fertile for him. There have been eight coaching changes in the NBA this season.

"Sure, I’d want that very much," said Ewing, who returns tonight to New York, where he became an NBA legend as a player. "Of course, I would love to get into a great situation, but a job is a job. We’ll see what happens.",0,2950482.story
