Patrick Ewing Makes Pitch for Coaching Job

Patrick Ewing continues to make it known that he wants to be a head coach in the very near future.

Ewing, currently an assistant with Orlando, will see his contract expire at the end of the season.

"I hope so," Ewing told the New York Post of getting an opportunity to coach. "I think every assistant coach in this league would love to get an opportunity. Herb [Williams] would love to get some interviews, too. We’re not in it just to be assistants our whole career. We would love to have the opportunity to be a head coach. Either him or myself hopefully will get an opportunity this summer."
