Legendary Georgetown coach John Thompson Jr., known simply as “Big John” throughout college basketball, has died at age 78.

Thompson, who led Georgetown to the 1984 national championship, built the program into a juggernaut, taking the Hoyas to three Final Fours in the 1980s.

His coaching legacy includes the recruitment and development of four players in Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame: Alonzo Mourning, Dikembe Mutombo, Patrick Ewing and Allen Iverson.
