Newly hired women’s basketball head coach Jonathan Tsipis will host a live video chat with fans Thursday at 11 a.m. that will stream for free on GW All-Access.

Fans can submit questions for the Colonials’ coach via the women’s basketball Twitter page, the George Washington University Colonials Facebook page or by e-mailing gwpromos@gwu.edu.

Tsipis was officially introduced as the ninth head coach of the women’s basketball program April 6, following a standout nine-year career as an assistant coach with the Notre Dame women’s basketball team. At Notre Dame, Tsipis saw the team earn a 228-77 record over nine seasons and helped the program to five NCAA Sweet 16 appearances, including back-to-back championship games over the past two seasons.

Tsipis’ new tasks at GW include crafting his coaching staff. Former WNBA and Notre Dame point guard Megan Duffy announced Sunday that she will join the Colonials on the sidelines next season as the program’s associate head coach.
