WASHINGTON - Georgetown University Head Men's Basketball Coach John Thompson III announced today that Kevin Sutton has joined his staff as an assistant coach.

"I'm excited to have Kevin join my staff," Thompson said. ""I've known Kevin for a long time and he has built a tremendous reputation as a great teacher of the game. He's a well-respected veteran in our game."

Sutton comes to Georgetown after two seasons an assistant coach under Mike Lonergan at George Washington University. He has 26 years of coaching experience including a pair of two-year stints as an assistant coach at both James Madison University and Old Dominion University.

In addition to his collegiate coaching experience, Sutton coached at five nationally-ranked high school programs - Flint Hill Preparatory, Harked Preparatory, St. John's Prospect Hall, Montrose Christian and, most recently, at Montverde Academy in Florida - amassing a 489-102 record and winning two national championships. In 1998, he was the Associate Head Coach on the USA Today Super 25 National Champion team and in 2007, he was the head coach of the Montverde Academy Hoops.Com National Champion team. He has also coached two different schools to second place national finishes.

Sutton has been selected as a coach for USA Basketball on three different occasions. He was an assistant coach at the Hoop Festival for the East team, had a two-year stint with the Junior Developmental Team (U16), which won a gold medal at the FIBA Americas Tournament in Argentina, and he was the head coach for the Nike/USA Basketball Hoop Summit, a game showcasing the top 10 international players against the top 10 American players.

Sutton has built a reputation of being an outstanding teacher of the game of basketball, helping more than 130 student-athletes earn college scholarships at all levels. Some of the notable players that Sutton has helped develop include: George Lynch (North Carolina), Arron Bain (Villanova), Randolph Childress (Wake Forest), Cory Alexander (Virginia), Exree Hipp (Maryland), Serge Zwikker (North Carolina), Cameron Dollar (UCLA), Nate James (Duke), Jason Capel (North Carolina).

 

 

Sutton also has more than 20 years of coaching experience at every level of basketball camps and clinics, including the Nike Hoops Jamboree, Nike All-American Camp, Michael Jordan Flight School and the LeBron James Skills Academy, among others.

Sutton and his wife, Beth, have four children, Aaron, Kayleigh, Isaiah and Rileigh.
