Robert Kirby joined the Georgetown men's basketball program as an assistant coach in June 2010.
Kirby, who has more than 26 years experience in coaching, spent the past 12 seasons as an assistant coach at Mississippi State.
A native of Memphis, Tenn., Kirby returned to Mississippi State in 1998 after spending five seasons (1994-98) as an assistant coach at the University of Houston. Prior to coaching at Houston, Kirby had served from 1990-93 as an assistant coach at Mississippi State, and before that he was an assistant coach at Southeastern Louisiana University (1988-89) and at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock (1985- 88). He began his full time coaching career as an assistant at Arkansas College in 1984.
A two-year basketball letterwinner and 1983 graduate of Pan American University (now known as the University of Texas-Pan American) in Edinburg, Texas, Kirby was a starting forward on the 1980-81 Bronc club that earned a berth in the National Invitation Tournament after recording a regular season upset win over the eventual NCAA Champion Indiana Hoosiers. He went on to average 12.4 points and 7.0 rebounds per game as a senior before serving one season as a student assistant coach at his alma mater.
Kirby began his collegiate playing career at Three Rivers Community College in Poplar Bluff, Mo., where he helped lead the Raiders to the 1978-79 national championship as a freshman and a fifth-place national team finish the following season.
