Childrey will coach wide receivers, while Kolt will coach the defensive line
Gearing up for spring practice and our spring practice schedule
Thurston Childrey has been promoted to coach wide receivers for his third season on the Hilltop, after working with linebackers and defensive backs in his first two seasons with the Georgetown football program.
In 2012, Childrey worked with the outside linebackers, helping junior Dustin Wharton make over 100 tackles for the second straight season to earn First Team All Patriot League honors.
In 2011, Childrey worked with defensive backs, as the unit finished second in the Patriot League with 17 interceptions. Under his guidance, senior safeties Wayne Heimuli and David Quintero had productive seasons, each intercepting three passes.
Childrey, a Richmond, Va. native, comes to the Hilltop after spending one season as the Assistant Quarterbacks Coach at University of Richmond. At Richmond, Childrey was responsible for signaling in plays during the first four games before being moved to the coaches box to assist the offensive coordinator with recognition of defensive schemes, coverage and play calling. He was also responsible for film breakdown and data entry along with offensive quality control jobs. Prior to Richmond, Childrey served as a Graduate Assistant at University of Virginia for three seasons, working with the offensive coordinator in each season.
Childrey graduated from Virginia in 2007 with a B.A. in English and a minor in government, where he served as a student football manager and Head Student Football Manager during his senior year.
