Briggs named new GC men’s basketball coach

August 25, 2011

Georgetown College Director of Athletics Brian Evans announced the new head men’s basketball coach Thursday afternoon. Four-year Tiger assistant to Happy Osborne, Chris Briggs, will immediately assume the leadership position, knowing and understanding he is taking over a tradition rich program. Not only has he been a part of that success here at Georgetown, but he was graduate assistant and student manager for legendary coach Tubby Smith.

“Some might think we hired him because he was the next in line,” Evans said. “I don’t work that way. We have standards and traditions to uphold and just because one coach is gone doesn’t mean my expectations change. Briggs understands all of that and illustrated his clear vision for moving this team forward after Happy Osborne’s departure.”
