Michael Neuberger was named Georgetown's offensive coordinator in March 2014. While overseeing the entire offense, Neuberger also coaches the team's running backs and worked with the tight ends through the 2016 season. He previously spent a season on the Hilltop, coaching GU's wide receivers in 2012.
In 2016, the Hoyas averaged 25.0 ppg and more than 300.0 ypg while jumping out to the program's first 3-0 start since 1999. Georgetown totaled more than 350 yards of total offense in each of its first two games of the season, wins over Davidson (38-17) and Marist (20-17). Running back Alex Valles ranked seventh in the Patriot League with 462 rushing yards for the season.
Neuberger helped running back Jo'el Kimpela and tight end Matt Buckman earn Second Team All-Patriot League honors in 2015. Kimpela became the fourth-leading rusher in program history with 1,945 career rushing yards, while Buckman had a strong junior season with 251 receiving yards and four touchdowns. Georgetown's scoring offense also improved by nearly 7.0 ppg during Neuberger's second season, averaging 20.2 ppg, despite matching up with the strong defenses of co-Ivy League champions Harvard and Dartmouth and FCS Playoff qualifiers Colgate and Fordham.
In his first season running the offense in 2014, Neuberger helped Kimpela have a breakout season, as the junior rushed for 838 yards to earn Second Team All-Patriot League honors. Buckman finished among the team's leading receivers with 369 yards on 29 catches.
Prior to his return to Georgetown, Neuberger coached running backs and tight ends at Cornell for the 2013 season. He helped Luke Hagy earn All-Ivy League Honorable Mention recognition, while Ty Bostain led Ivy League tight ends in receptions (29) and finished third at his position in receiving yardage (262).
In 2012 with the Hoyas, Neuberger's wide receivers averaged 12.11 yards per catch and accounted for seven touchdowns, while helping develop Kevin Macari into a Second Team All-Patriot League selection.
He spent the 2011 season as the tight ends coach at Columbia, where he developed Hamilton Garner into an All-Ivy League honorable mention selection. He also assisted in the offensive game plan development, while also serving as the scout team coordinator for defense and special teams.
Prior to his season with the Lions, Neuberger spent two seasons as a graduate assistant coach at Maryland. Neuberger worked with running backs in 2009 and with the offensive line in 2010, where he was an integral part of the second-largest turnaround in the FBS, helping the Terrapins improve by seven wins from its previous season. Neuberger worked with the 2010 Maryland offensive line that helped produce 32.23 ppg, the 30th-best mark in the nation. He also worked with the fourth-best punt return unit in the nation that averaged 16.94 yards per return, featuring First Team All-ACC selection Tony Logan.
Neuberger spent the 2006-09 seasons as an assistant coach at Dayton, where he worked with tight ends, slot receivers and offensive lineman. He helped in the team's development and implementation of the spread offense, while coaching AP Second Team All-America tight end Matt Champa. His work helped the Flyers rank fifth in the nation in passing (299.50 yards per game) and sixth in the nation in scoring (38.83 ppg). He earned his start in coaching at Dayton as a student assistant coach while he finished his undergraduate degree in 2005, working primarily with defensive backs.
Neuberger, a Pittsburgh, Pa. native, played four seasons from 2001-04 in the secondary and on special teams at Dayton. He was a member of two Pioneer Football League championship teams, while helping the Flyers win its first I-AA Mid-Major national championship in 2002. He was a two-time member of the PFL Academic Honor Roll.
He graduated from Dayton with a bachelor of science in education and allied professions in 2005. Neuberger lives with his wife, Ashlyn, in Kensington, Md.
