Paul Hewitt rounds out his staff with former NBA assistant Mike Wells

The school announced today that Paul Hewitt has added Mike Wells as the final assistant coach to his staff.  Wells at one time was an assistant on the Washington Wizards coaching staff and also spent time with the San Antonio Spurs and Houston Rockets.  All together he has 17 years of experience in the NBA including being apart of two NBA championship staffs. The press release has another quote from Hewitt stating how he wanted to a staff that would be "strong on player development and also recruit domestically and internationally".  That's great and all but where is the x's and o's guy on this staff? Wells profile seems to read that he was a scout in the NBA and seems to be more a player developmental type of coach.  Perhaps I'm not giving enough credit to the other assistants in this area. Regardless having a guy on the staff with NBA experience could a huge boost for the program and perhaps he can bring a lot of things to the table that the other coaches have not experienced.

Three straight?  I remember when I was ecstatic when we made the NCAA tourney and got annihilated by Cincinnati in the first round.  The fact we've gotten to this point say a lot!  Thanks Coach L!

I am a long time Georgia Tech fan and had season tickets for the entire time Hewitt was at Tech except the last year (I couldn't take it anymore).  He is a great recruiter, runs a clean program, and is a good representative for your school.  But if the staff he has hired doesn't include some people who can coach X's and O's and teach fundamentals, I really feel sorry for you guys.  Hewitt excelled at Siena and his first 5 years at Tech because he had 2 good assistants named Deane Keener and Cliff Warren.  Once they left, the dropoff was dramatic.  Good luck.
