Kevin Warne enters his third season on the Hilltop, as the 12th Head Coach of the Georgetown University men's lacrosse program.

Warne was selected to take the reins of the 50-year old program by Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Lee Reed in August 2012.

In his first season, Warne led the Hoyas to its first postseason appearance since 2007 with a trip to the 2013 BIG EAST Championship. Georgetown finished 6-9 in Warne's first season, going 3-3 in BIG EAST Conference play, while the Hoyas finished second in the league in ground balls (31.53/game) and caused turnovers (7.87/game).

Under his guidance, Warne has already helped several players to historic careers at Georgetown. Face-off specialist Tyler Knarr was named a 2014 Third Team USILA All-American, 2014 North-South All-Star Game participant and First Team All-BIG EAST selection after leading the nation in ground balls (10.9/gm) and finishing third in face-off win percentage (.661). He also broke his own single-season ground ball program record (153), originally set in Warne's first season, 2013. He also broke the program record for single-season face-off wins (207).

In 2014, Peter Conley became the first GU freshman to earn All-BIG EAST First Team honors after leading the Hoyas with 37 points.

In 2013, Reilly O'Connor finished second in the BIG EAST in points per game (3.73). Knarr, O'Connor and Charlie McCormick were all named 2013 Second Team All-BIG EAST. Under Warne's tutelage, Brennan Bicknese was selected to play in the North-South All Star Game.

"I'm really excited to name Kevin Warne as head coach for our men's lacrosse program," Reed said. "Kevin's commitment to student-athlete welfare and his passion for the game makes him the perfect person to take over our lacrosse program at this time. He is considered to be one of the top young assistants in the country and he has a terrific track record of success as an assistant coach, including appearances in the last two national championship games. We welcome Kevin to the Hoya family and look forward to working with him to build on the great tradition and success of Georgetown lacrosse."

Regarded as one of the top defensive minds in men's lacrosse, Warne helped guide Maryland to consecutive NCAA National Championship games in his two years in College Park with a 25-11 record. The Terps finished the season ranked No. 2 in the country by Inside Lacrosse in 2011 and 2012.

In 2011, his first season with Maryland, Warne helped lead the Terps to a 13-5 season record, the 2011 ACC championship and three-straight wins in the NCAA Tournament to reach the title game. In 2012, Maryland finished the regular season, 9-5 and again advanced to the NCAA Tournament Championship Game. In two seasons, Warne helped guide seven Maryland players to earn All-America honors, including defender Brett Schmidt, who was named the ACC Scholar-Athlete of the Year in 2011.

Prior to Maryland, Warne spent three seasons as an assistant coach at Harvard, where his primary responsibility was overseeing the Crimson defense. In his first season with the Crimson program in 2008, the team had the most All-Ivy League selections since 1999 and was ranked in both major polls during the year. During the 2009 campaign, Warne's defensive unit ranked third in the nation in goals allowed per game and Harvard won eight games for the first time since 2002. The Crimson earned five All-Ivy picks and was ranked as high as No. 11 in the nation in the USILA poll. Harvard allowed 10 or more goals only twice and upset No. 5 Duke to open the season. Warne's work with the Crimson earned him recognition as one of college lacrosse's top assistant coaches by ESPN's Quint Kessenich prior to the 2010. In 2010, Warne helped the Crimson win at least six games for the third straight season, as Harvard earned its first victory over No. 6 Princeton since 1990.

Warne came to Harvard from UMBC, where he served as associate head coach for the Retrievers and helped UMBC advance to the NCAA quarterfinals in 2007. He also served as UMBC's main recruiting coordinator, as well as the program's liaison to the equipment and strength & conditioning departments. Prior to his position at UMBC, Warne served as an assistant coach from 2001-04 at the University of Delaware, working primarily with the offense.

A 2000 graduate of Hofstra, Warne majored in psychology while playing for the Pride from 1995-99. He was a four-year letterwinner and a two-time All-America East honoree. As a senior, he was also named an honorable mention All-American after guiding Hofstra to its third league championship and postseason berth.

While finishing his degree at Hofstra, Warne served as an assistant coach at Plainview-Old Bethpage High School on Long Island. He got his start at the collegiate coaching level in 2000 at the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy prior to moving on to coach at Delaware.

Warne married the former Jennifer Merrill, who was a four-time letterwinner and team captain at Hofstra in volleyball, in August 2009. The couple currently resides in Darnestown, Md. with daughter, Campbell.
