Robert Burke brings 20 years of collegiate coaching experience to the Georgetown bench. He has been part of the building process at five NCAA Division I institutions and has helped teams to postseason play in nine of the last ten years, including all four years of his tenure at Georgetown.

Before coming to Georgetown, Burke spent four seasons alongside Thompson at Princeton. During that time, the Tigers captured two outright Ivy League titles and tied for a third. While at Princeton, Burke's main responsibilities were recruiting and game preparation. These continue to be his primary areas of responsibility with the Hoyas.

Burke's first coaching experience was as an assistant at the University of Maryland-Baltimore County, where he served from 1988 through 1994. During that time, he recruited the school's all-time assist leader as well as five of the top 20 all-time leading scorers.

He spent the next three years on the West Coast at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, before returning east as an assistant at Siena College. In each of his three seasons at Siena, the Saints were among the top five nationally in scoring, averaging at least 86.0 points per game. In addition, Siena played in three consecutive Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) championship games, won two MAAC titles, compiled a 66-27 record, and received two invitations to postseason play.

Throughout his career he has been recognized as one of the top assistant coaches and recruiters in the country by various publications such as Eastern Basketball and The Sporting News. A Silver Spring, Md., native, Burke played basketball for coach Dick Myers at Gonzaga College High School in Washington, D.C. After high school, he was an MVP and team captain at Haverford College until he was sidelined by a torn ACL during his senior season.
