Position:
Assistant Coach


Louis Orr joined the Georgetown men’s basketball staff as an assistant coach in June 2017.

Orr comes to Georgetown with familiarity to the BIG EAST Conference as both a coach and a player. A 1980 Syracuse graduate, Orr had stints as an assistant coach at Xavier (1991-94), Providence College (1994-96) and Syracuse (1996-2000) and was the head coach at Seton Hall from 2001-06.

Most recently, Orr was an assistant coach with the Xinjiang Flying Tigers of the Chinese Basketball Association. His team captured the regular season title and first CBA championship in the 2016-17 campaign.

Previously, Orr served as the head coach at Bowling Green State University from 2007-14. He led the Falcons to a pair of postseason appearances and was named the Mid-American Conference Coach of the Year after guiding BGSU to a 19-14 record and an appearance in the National Invitation Tournament (NIT) in his second season.

Prior to his arrival at Bowling Green, Orr was the head coach at Seton Hall from 2001-06, where he compiled an 80-69 record. He was named the BIG EAST Conference’s Coach of the Year in 2003, becoming the first person in league history to receive league honors as both a player and a coach. Orr, the first former BIG EAST player to coach at a conference institution, guided the Pirates to three postseason appearances, twice going to the NCAA Tournament (2004 and 2006) and once to the NIT (2003), in five seasons.

Orr also served as the head coach at Siena College in 2000-01, guiding the Saints to a 20-11 record and a share of the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference regular season title.

Orr played in the NBA for eight years, including six seasons with the New York Knicks. He was Patrick Ewing’s teammate at the Knicks for Ewing’s first three years in the NBA.
