Former Duke men's basketball star Greg Paulus has taken a new step in his coaching career. He's landed a new gig.

George Washington announced this afternoon that it has hired the former Blue Devils' point guard.

"I am thrilled with the addition of Greg Paulus to our staff and the GW Basketball family," said head coach Maurice Joseph.

"Greg is a tireless recruiter and talented tactician who will aid in the overall development of our student-athletes, particularly our perimeter players. He was groomed in one of college basketball's elite winning cultures during his time at Duke, where he had a standout career in the ACC. Additionally, Greg was a three-time ACC All-Academic Team selection and a two-time Academic All-American. His playing and coaching career to this point coincide with our athletic department's commitment to discipline and excellence on and off the court and we couldn't be more excited to add he and his wife Megan to the Colonial family."

Here's the full release:

Paulus, 31, played at Duke from 2005-09. He then played football for one season at Syracuse.

The former point guard began his coaching career in 2010 as an assistant at Navy. He joined Ohio State's program in 2011 and was there through 2017. Paulus spent last season at Louisville.

“George Washington University is a world class institution and has a proud basketball tradition,” Paulus said. “I am grateful for the opportunity to be a part of Coach Joseph’s coaching staff. I am looking forward to working with the student-athletes and developing them on and off the court.”
