Briggs named new GC men’s basketball coach

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.

Briggs understands all of that and illustrated his clear vision for moving this team forward after Happy Osborne’s departure.”
