WASHINGTON - Georgetown University Head Men's Basketball Coach John Thompson III today announced the addition of Tavaras Hardy to his staff as an assistant coach. Hardy replaces Mike Brennan, who was named Head Coach at American University last month.

"We are excited to welcome Tavaras to Georgetown," Thompson said. "He brings a wealth of experience to the Hilltop. His strengths are not limited, he is a veteran recruiter, he is a tireless worker and he can teach the game."

Hardy comes to the Hilltop after seven seasons on the staff at Northwestern, where he helped to lead the Wildcats to four consecutive postseason appearances (2009-12) and to consecutive school record 20-win seasons in 2009-10 and again in 2010-11. He served as the team's associate head coach the last two years.

Recognized as an outstanding recruiter, Hardy helped mentor John Shurna during his record-breaking career as he became a first-team All-Big Ten selection, the conference's leading scorer and Northwestern career leader in scoring. In addition, Drew Crawford was named the 2010 Big Ten Freshman of the Year by the league's media members.

Prior to NU, Hardy spent three years as a head coach for the Illinois Defenders boys' basketball program. Among their many accomplishments, his under-16 team captured the championship of the 2005 Las Vegas Main Event tournament with a perfect 7-0 record. During that same time period, Hardy also worked in wealth management at JPMorgan Chase and Co.

Hardy was a four-year letterwinner and three-time most valuable player at Northwestern from 1998-2002. He earned All-Big 10 honors twice, ranks second in games played and is among the top 20 in seven major categories at the school. Hardy graduated from Northwestern in 2002, earning his bachelor of arts degree in political science.

Hardy and his wife Billée are the proud parents of Mariah (6) and Jasmine (1).
