Ed Cooley’s first season on the Georgetown men’s basketball baseline has not gone quite as planned. The Hoyas suffered a 70-76 loss to Seton Hall on Wednesday, which dropped their record to 8-14.
Cooley spent the past 12 seasons at Providence before leaving to join Georgetown. Cooley led the Friars to seven March Madness tournament appearances during his tenure.
Cooley did manage to guide the Hoyas to a 5-2 start to the season, but Georgetown has struggled mightily against Big East conference opponents.

The first-year coach decided to address the heckler with a short, profanity-laced response. “You know what, I’m rich as a motherf—–r. I’m rich as s—,” Cooley said moments after Georgetown suffered a seventh consecutive loss.
The terms of Cooley’s contract with Georgetown have not been made public. However, previous reports stated that the university had to offer a significant sum to entice Cooley to leave Providence.
Last month, Cooley returned to Rhode Island, but, Providence fans did not give him a warm welcome. Shortly before the game tipped off fans inside the arena began a vulgar “F— Ed Cooley” chant.
