WASHINGTON - Kevin Kelly has announced that he will resign from his position as Georgetown University head football coach to take a role on the coaching staff at Ball State University. Rob Sgarlata (C'94), who has served as the assistant head coach and defensive coordinator, will serve as the interim head coach.

Georgetown University will conduct a national search for its next head coach.

"We are grateful to Coach Kelly for his service to Georgetown and for his devotion to the education and overall development of his players," Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Lee Reed said. "While on the Hilltop, he embraced the challenge of coaching this program in the highly competitive Patriot League and has helped to build a strong foundation. We wish him well in his new position."

Kelly concludes his eight years on the Hilltop as head coach, where he was the 2011 Patriot League Coach of the Year and a finalist for the 2011 Eddie Robinson FCS Coach of the Year Award. The Hoyas posted an 8-3 record and Patriot League runner-up finish in 2011. During his tenure, he coached 28 student-athletes to all-league honors and 231 to league academic honors.

Sgarlata, who has been part of the Hoyas' coaching staff for the past 18 seasons, ranks among the football program's all-time rushing leaders and is a 1994 Georgetown graduate with a degree in government and international relations. He earned his master's degree in sport industry management from Georgetown in May 2012.
