Robert Burke to coach Mount St. Mary's.

CBS Sportsline and Fox Sports are both reporting that former Princeton and Georgetown assistant Robert Burke has been hired as the new men's basketball coach at Mount St. Mary's.

Burke was on the sidelines alongside John Thompson III at Princeton from 2000-2004 and at Georgetown from 2004-2009 before leaving the Hoyas without explanation. This past season he was an assistant coach at American University.

The Mountaineers went 16-15 last season, 12-6 in the NEC.

Congratulations to a great guy and a wonderful coach. So happy to see him get an opportunity to run his own program. Mt. St. Mary's is very lucky. Good luck Coach Burke !!!

Any sense what Burke's philosophies will be on offense and defense? After nine years with JT3, one would think that Burke can't help but use at least some of the Tiger/Hoya stuff.
