WASHINGTON - Georgetown University Football Head Coach Rob Sgarlata has announced the addition of Adam Neugebauer to the coaching staff. Neugebauer, who comes from Division II Tiffin University in Ohio, will work directly with GU’s wide receivers and slot receivers inside of offensive coordinator Mike Neuberger’s offense.
“I am very excited to welcome Adam Neugebauer to our football staff,” Sgarlata said. “Adam is a very talented young coach who brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to our offensive staff. He is an energetic teacher who will be an asset to our players on the field and in the classroom. I am looking forward to his first season on the Hilltop.”
Georgetown is a University that everyone knows and has a reputation for its amazing campus and people,” Neugebauer said. “Those statements are 100 percent true as I saw this when I stepped foot on campus for the first time. I am very fortunate to be able to coach the game that I love and am extremely grateful for this unbelievable opportunity Coach Sgarlata and Coach Neuberger have given me. Now it is time to work.”
Neugebauer arrives at the Hilltop after spending the past six seasons on the coaching staff at Tiffin University, including the past two as the offensive coordinator. He also worked with the quarterbacks for his final four seasons. In 2016, under Neugebauer’s guidance, the Dragons averaged 31 points per game and 435 yards of offense per game. Five offensive players earned spots on all All-Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) Teams, including the first ever offensive lineman on the second team.
In Neugebauer’s first season as the offensive coordinator in 2015, Tiffin broke multiple school records on offense, including amassing 5,011 yards of total offense and averaging just under 35 points per game. Six offensive players earned All-GLIAC honors.
Under Neugebauer’s tutelage, quarterback Antonio Pipkin graduated as Tiffin’s all-time leader in plays (2,023), passing attempts, (1,514), completions (980), passing yards (10,940), total offense (13,147) and most 300-yard passing games (15). On a national level, Pipkin’s career is one of the best in NCAA Division II history, finishing 13th all-time in total offense, 27th in passing yards and 19th in total offense per game (298.79). Pipkin is only the third quarterback to ever rush for at least 2,000 yards and pass for at least 10,000 yards. He was the 2015 GLIAC Back of the Year and was a finalist for the Harlon Hill Trophy, given to the most valuable player in Division II.
Neugebauer was a standout quarterback at West Virginia Wesleyan College, breaking 15 school records and never losing a home game in his two years as a starter. He led Division II in five offensive categories as a senior in 2011 including passing yards (4,111), touchdowns (42), completions (353), completions per game (32) and yards per game (372). A two-year captain, Neugebauer was named the Super Region One Player of the Year and the West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (WVIAC) Offensive Player of the Year as a senior, as well as a finalist for the Harlon Hill Trophy and a First Team All-American.
Following his collegiate career, Neugebauer played arena football for the Green Bay Blizzard and the Marion Blue Racers.
Neugebauer graduated with degrees in criminal law and political science from West Virginia Wesleyan College.
