Matt Kirby was named an assistant baseball coach at Georgetown in July 2010. Kirby is no stranger to the program, having served as a volunteer assistant for the Hoyas during the 2009-10 academic year.
Kirby joined the Hoyas after spending two years as the pitching coach and recruiting coordinator at Villanova.
"I'm excited to add Matt to our staff," Wilk said. "He did a tremendous job with our young men last year and the team really responded to his approach. Matt has a great baseball mind and I'm sure that our team will benefit from it."
Kirby was responsible for a recruiting class at Villanova that was rated among the top-100 in the country by Collegiate Baseball Newspaper. The Villanova pitching staff enjoyed another strong season under Kirby's guidance in 2007. Starting pitcher Mike Loree was a draft pick of the San Francisco Giants after a year in which he broke the career innings pitched records at both Villanova and in the BIG EAST Conference.
Kirby went to Villanova during the summer of 2006 after serving as an assistant coach at Brown in 2006, where he helped to oversee all areas of the program. The Bears compiled a 12-8 record in Ivy League conference play during the season.
Prior to his stint at Brown, Kirby was the assistant coach at William & Mary in 2005 and served in the same capacity at Virginia Military Institute in 2004. He worked primarily with the catchers, outfielders and hitters while at William & Mary.
Kirby is a 2003 graduate of William & Mary. He was the captain of the team as a junior and senior, leading the team to the Colonial Athletic Association title in 2002 and to a division crown in 2002. He served as a student assistant in 2003.
