Hoops: Seina Coaching Update

Turns out that Cliff Warren is not the only Coach Hewitt current or former assistant in the running for the Siena job. Robert Burke, who was also an assistant when Coach Hewitt was at Siena, just visited the school for an interview:

Burke, 39, just finished his first year at Georgetown, where he worked under coach John Thompson III. Before that, he worked with Thompson at Princeton University from 2000-2004.

From 1997-2000, Burke was an assistant coach at Siena for Paul Hewitt. Hewitt has given his support to Burke as well as Cliff Warren, who is an assistant at Georgia Tech under Hewitt.

D'Argenio flew to Atlanta to speak with Warren last Friday; he talked with Burke in Washington on Monday.
