Georgetown University hired Maryland defensive coordinator Kevin Warne as its new lacrosse coach on Tuesday. Warne has spent the past two season at Maryland, where he helped the squad reach back-to-back NCAA title games and No. 2 rankings from Inside Lacrosse.
Prior to his time at Maryland, Warne served as an assistant at Harvard, UMBC and Delaware, experiencing success at each stop. He is considered one of the top young coaches in collegiate lacrosse with a great mind for defense. At Maryland, Warne helped guide seven players to All-America honors.
Warne is the 12th head lacrosse coach in Georgetown's history. The Hoyas former coach, Dave Urick, retired in July after 23 seasons and 223 wins at Georgetown. The Hoyas finished 7-6 last season and have not made the NCAA tournament since 2007, but never had a losing season under Urick.
