WASHINGTON - Georgetown University Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Lee Reed announced today that Dr. Mike Lorenzen has joined the Hoyas as Director of Student-Athlete Leadership and Development.

"We're thrilled to have Mike join our family in this new position," Reed said. "Mike has a great understanding of the needs of coaches and student-athletes and I know that he is ready to build one of the premier leadership and student development programs in the country. He will be a great asset to our student-athletes as they work hard to reach their potential as leaders in athletics and in their future professions."

Lorenzen comes to the Hilltop with a diverse background in education and athletics. He most recently worked with The CASA Group, of which he was the principal and founder. A consulting firm for college athletics administrators, The CASA Group provided strategic audits and benchmarking studies for Division I universities, conducted leadership and team-building seminars and performed in-house evaluations for higher ed clients. During that time, he also served as an adjunct professor in sports management at the University of San Francisco.

On the athletics side, Lorenzen is a former head coach of a nationally-ranked women's gymnastics program at the University of Iowa and has coached previously at Stanford and Arizona State as well.

While at Iowa from 1999-2004, Lorenzen was named the Big Ten Coach of the Year twice (2001, 2004) and guided the team from last in the conference in his first season to a top regular season finish in the conference by his departure. The Hawkeyes twice advanced to the NCAA Tournament, had six individuals earned All-American honors and six win Big Ten individual titles.

Lorenzen was an assistant coach at Stanford from 2005-10, spent six years (2004-10) as the President of the National Association of Collegiate Gymnastics Coaches and was the associate head coach at Arizona State in 2010-11.

A native of Maryland, Lorenzen earned his bachelor of arts in government and politics from the University of Maryland in 1986. He went on to earn a master of arts in international relations from Yale in 1989 and his doctor of education in 2010 from the University of the Pacific.
