GW gives Joseph 5-year deal as coach; no longer 'interim'

WASHINGTON (AP) Maurice Joseph is sticking around as George Washington's basketball coach, signing a five-year contract on Monday after one season with an interim title in place of the fired Mike Lonergan.

The Colonials went 20-15 this season under Joseph, losing in the quarterfinals of the lower-tier College Basketball Invitational.

"Maurice has demonstrated that he is the right individual to lead our men's basketball program," athletic director Patrick Nero said, according to a statement released by the school. "Our student-athletes respond well to his energy, passion and vision. ... We're confident that he will continue to recruit and retain the next generation of men's basketball student-athletes and help their talents shine."
