April 20, 2012
Geno Auriemma - Head Women's Basketball Coach, University of Connecticut
"Jonathan has been an integral part of Notre Dame's success over the last nine years and he is well prepared to be an outstanding head coach. GW is a great place that has had a lot of success over the years, and I expect Jonathan to have the Colonials back at the top of the A-10 sooner rather than later."
Mike Brey ('82) - Head Men's Basketball Coach, University of Notre Dame
"I am thrilled that Jonathan Tsipis will be heading to Foggy Bottom. I have watched him coach and teach up close for nine years and I am thoroughly impressed. Who wouldn't want their daughter to play for Jonathan? He has a fabulous feel for the game and is a great communicator. I am thrilled my alma mater has chosen him."
Brenda Frese - Head Women's Basketball Coach, University of Maryland
"Jonathan is a rising star in the profession. He helped build Notre Dame into a national power. As he builds his program at GW it will be fun for the area to see women's college basketball at a high level."
Mike Lonergan - Head Men's Basketball Coach, George Washington University
"I think Jonathan will do a great job of restoring the great tradition of women's basketball at GW. He has a proven track record of recruiting quality student-athletes who have achieved great success on the court and in the classroom."
Fran McCaffery - Head Men's Basketball Coach, University of Iowa
"Jonathan is one of the finest assistants I've ever had. He's phenomenally gifted technically and has a tremendous personality. Jonathan will do a phenomenal job in the George Washington community. I'm really excited for him to have this opportunity. I know the history of George Washington basketball and I believe he's an absolute perfect fit."
Muffet McGraw - Head Women's Basketball Coach, University of Notre Dame
"Jonathan is an exceptionally hard-working and dedicated coach who brought a great deal of positive energy during his nine seasons at Notre Dame. He is a very strong X's-and-O's coach and someone who has built a great network of contacts throughout the college basketball world. I'm grateful for all he has done for our program and will be eagerly following his teams at George Washington, where I expect he will have great success."
