ATLANTA — Georgia Tech basketball coach Paul Hewitt does not really look like Democratic nominee Barack Obama. But both men are tall, lanky, and black so Hewitt is feeling the residue of a hotly contested Presidential election.
Someone approached Hewitt to ask about him about it on Sunday at the ACC media day. Before it went too far, Hewitt said, “I’ve already heard it all.”
It has gotten to the point, Hewitt said, that “I had a recruit call me Coach Obama."
