They hired Ewing in part that he'd get Coach Thomps approval.
If Big John was worried about what Georgetown Mens BB wants....success.... then Georgetown wouldn't have hired Ewing.
He has no idea how to recruit, has been removed from the college game (player only) for over 30yrs and has never had this much weight put on his shoulders when it comes to coaching.
Unfortunately, it's going to end up ugly and my guess is that Pat is gone in 3yrs or less.
I hope I'm wrong though cause I respect Ewing
