George Washington is expected to hire Jamion Christian as their next head coach, sources told NBC Sports.

Christian spent last season at Siena, where he finished fifth in the MAAC regular season. He had previously spent five seasons as the head coach at Mount St. Mary’s, where he reached the NCAA tournament twice in five years. At 36 years old, he is a Virginia native that played for the Mount and spent the majority of his coaching career in the area prior to his one season at Siena.

Christian will replace Maurice Joseph,, who spent three seasons as head coach of the Colonials after Mike Lonergan was fired in September of 2016.
