Georgetown lacrosse set to hire U-Md. defensive coordinator Kevin Warne as head coach

Georgetown is set to name Maryland defensive coordinator Kevin Warne as its next head lacrosse coach, three sources familiar with the search said Tuesday morning. An announcement is expected Tuesday.

Warne, 35, had spent the past two years at Maryland and helped it reach the NCAA title game both years. He also had been an assistant at Harvard and UMBC.

He replaces Dave Urick, who retired July 13 after 23 seasons with the Hoyas.

Warne interviewed at Georgetown over the weekend and was offered the job soon after.

The Hoyas finished 7-6 this past season and missed the Big East tournament and NCAA tournament. Though the Hoyas did not have a losing season under Urick, they were last in the NCAA tournament in 2007.

Warne caught Georgetown’s eye after he helped the Terrapins reach the NCAA title game in 2011 with three seniors starting on close defense; they reached the title game again last season with three new starters on close defense.
