Oddsmakers think Rick Pitino will replace Patrick Ewing at Georgetown

Oddsmakers think Rick Pitino will replace Patrick Ewing at Georgetown

Earlier this week, Georgetown fired head coach Patrick Ewing after six seasons with the program.

The school announced that it has "begun a national search for new leadership," and it's a high-profile opening.

So, who are the top candidates to replace Ewing? 

SportsBetting.ag set odds on who will be the Hoyas' next head coach, and a Hall-of-Famer is currently leading the pack.

Rick Pitino, who is currently the head coach at Iona University, is the odds-on favorite (-200). Pitino is a two-time NCAA champion with a 834-292 record over the course of his coaching career. This season, he led Iona to the NCAA Tournament as a 13th seed. They will face fourth-seeded UConn in the first round.

Pitino's son, Rick Jr., is also on the board (+1600) among the 15 candidates, which features some obvious long shots such as Tubby Smith (+10000), Jay Wright (+50000) and Jim Boeheim (+100000).

Here are the current odds for who will become Georgetown's next coach:

Rick Pitino -200
Mike Brey +500
Micah Shrewsberry +600
Ed Cooley +800
Kevin Keatts +800
Kim English +1400
Mike Boynton +1400
Rick Pitino Jr. +1600
Brad Underwood +1800
Grant McCasland +2000
Matt Langel +2000
Mike Jones +2000
Tubby Smith +10000
Jay Wright +50000
Jim Boeheim +100000
