Johns Hopkins grad Rewkowski, Maryland's Phipps to join Hoyas staff
The Georgetown men's lacrosse program is expected to fill its two full-time assistant coaching positions by naming Matt Rewkowski (Johns Hopkins) offensive coordinator and Brian Phipps (Maryland, Severn) an assistant in charge of goalies, three sources familiar with the search said Tuesday. Rewkowski, 29, had been the offensive coordinator at Cornell the past two seasons. He also had spent four seasons at Hofstra and one at Denver. Phipps worked as a volunteer assistant with the Terps last season. The hires follow the announcement last week that Maryland defensive coordinator Kevin Warne will take over as Hoyas head coach.
