Hewitt has little to say about future

GREENSBORO - Coach Paul Hewitt had little to say about his future at Georgia Tech following a 59-43, season-ending loss to Virginia Tech in the first round of the ACC tournament late Thursday night.

It's the third time in four seasons that the Yellow Jackets have finished with a losing record. Georgia Tech is seven years removed from its trip to the NCAA championship game, which was the high point of Hewitt's tenure.

Hewitt was asked after Thursday's loss if he anticipates being back.

"Yes I do," Hewitt said. "But - you know."

Hewitt, who withdrew from consideration for the St. John's job after last season, was asked about the fickle nature of the coaching business.

"Last year was last year," Hewitt said. "This year we didn’t accomplish the things we were capable of accomplishing. And that’s it."
