WASHINGTON - Georgetown University Head Football Coach Kevin Kelly has announced the promotion of assistant coaches Thurston Childrey and Alex Kolt. Childrey will move to the offense and coach the Hoyas' wide receivers, while Kolt will move to defense and coach the team's defensive lineman. Both are entering their third season on the Hilltop.
"Alex and Thurston have both worked extremely hard, been loyal to the program and understand our schemes on both sides of the ball," Head Coach Kevin Kelly said. "They have become excellent coaches and have built a good rapport with our players and have earned the opportunity to help continue to build this program."
Childrey moves to the offensive side of the ball to coach wide receivers in Vinny Marino's offense, after spending his first two seasons with the Georgetown football program, coaching defensive backs and outside linebackers. In 2012 the Hoyas outside linebackers shined under Childrey's tutelage, as Dustin Wharton earned First Team All Patriot League honors. During his first season at GU, Childrey worked with the team's safeties.
Childrey, a Richmond, Va. native, comes to the Hilltop after spending one season as the assistant quarterbacks coach at University of Richmond. Prior to his time in Richmond, Childrey served as a graduate assistant at University of Virginia for three seasons, working with the offensive coordinator.
Kolt will move from offense to defense, where he has worked as an offensive line assistant and tight ends coach in his first two seasons on the Hilltop.
Kolt was a two year starter at Hampden-Sydney on the offensive line, helping his team to conference championships in 2007 and 2009. Kolt graduated from Hampden-Sydney with a B.A. in history and minor in rhetoric and earned his Master of Education in sports leadership.
