PORTLAND, OR – MARCH 19: Head coach John Thompson III of the Georgetown Hoyas looks on in the second half against the Eastern Washington Eagles during the second round of the 2015 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament at Moda Center on March 19, 2015 in Portland, Oregon.

Political reporter Chris Cillizza must be shocked that Georgetown fired head coach John Thompson III Thursday after 13 seasons in charge.  On quite a few occasions throughout the years Cillizza, a Georgetown alum who currently writes The Fix, a politics blog for the Washington Post, but will be leaving that job in April for a bigger role at CNN, has tweeted about his beloved Hoyas and their recent struggles under Thompson (“JTIII”).  While it is no secret that Cillizza has been hoping to see a coaching change at his alma mater, for years he has emphatically rebuffed even the slightest notion that there would even be a possibility that Thompson would ever be fired…

Well Chris, today is your lucky day. Your thoughts?

Go Hoyas.
