Scott Greenman joins Georgetown staff.

I don't know why it still hasn't been publicly announced by the school (most of you should have been able to figure it out by now), but I've been waiting since early August to tell you that Scott Greenman is currently working on the Georgetown basketball staff as the team's Video Coordinator.

This position was recently held by Martin Bahar, who departed the Hoyas to become Princeton's Director of Basketball Operations in August of last year.

Why didn't we keep him?

The Ivy League only allows for two paid assistant positions. In Princeton's case that's Tony Newsom and Brian Earl. Greenman's job was that of "Volunteer Assistant Coach," like Howie Levy before him.

The Director of Basketball Operations is a paid position, but there are restrictions placed by the NCAA that make this job hands off during practices and other on-court situations.

My guess is that Scott Greenman saw advantages in taking a paid job at Georgetown and accepting a position at a Big East school that has room for his advancement both at the institution and in his overall professional career.

Thanks Jon. Makes sense. Sorry to see Scott go.

On a somewhat related note, I think this is also one of the reasons why Princeton has had four Directors of Basketball Operations in five years.

Dan Connelly got a chance to take a grad assistant position at Memphis that allowed him to be hands-on with players and Martin Bahar moved to Princeton's third assistant because he can be hands-on with the Tigers in a way he couldn't be as DOBO.

There's a lot of turnover with this sort of job because most people who have it aspire to be head coaches someday and that's a hard road to travel without assistant coaching experience.
