He coached two All-America selections, including midfielder Craig Berge, a 2015 USILA All-America honorable mention, who became the first Hoya freshman to earn the recognition. Four of his players have been selected to play in the prestigious North-South All Star Game, while two have gone on to play professionally, one in Major League Lacrosse (Knarr) and one in the NLL (Reilly O'Connor).
In 2015, Warne led the Hoyas to the program's first 10-win season and first postseason victory since 2007, defeating Marquette in the BIG EAST Championship semifinals.He guided the program to its first appearance in the BIG EAST Championship game, before losing to eventual National Champion, Denver.

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

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.

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.
