Providence College basketball coach Ed Cooley's East Greenwich house has been put up for sale, as speculation swirls about whether he will leave Providence to become the head coach at Georgetown.
The 4-bedroom, 6-bathroom house at 55 Lenihan Lane is listed for $1.9 million.
It's classified as a "new listing" on the Residential Properties website and is characterized as "a very special offering."
Cooley and his wife, Nurys, met in person Sunday morning at their home with Providence athletic director Steve Napolillo, the Providence Journal's Bill Koch reported. They later met virtually with representatives from Georgetown for what he described as “an open conversation.”
Georgetown fired program legend Patrick Ewing after six seasons and a lone NCAA Tournament appearance – as it turned out, an automatic bid secured by a fluke run to a conference tournament championship in 2020-21. Ewing won just 28 league games during his tenure and presided over a program light years from previous highs reached by the late John Thompson. Cooley would expect to receive a pay raise for both himself and his staff from the Hoyas along with proximity to a strong recruiting area and institutional financial strength that comes with a conference-high endowment of more than $3 billion.
