August 30, 2012|By Terry Foy

Sources have told Inside Lacrosse that Fairfield associate head coach Kevin Conry is set to replace newly named Georgetown head coach Kevin Warne as the Terps' defensive coordinator. Conry was an assistant at Fairfield for five seasons, and spent the past two as associate head coach under Andy Copelan.

In 2012, the Stag defense finished 16th in Division I with 9.06 goals against and Fairfield advanced to the ECAC finals before falling to Loyola. At Maryland, Conry inherits a 'D' that finished ninth in DI with 7.94 goals allowed and featured ACC Rookie of the Year Goran Murray and redshirt sophomore goalie Niko Amato, who stopped 54 percent of the shots he saw last season.

Prior to Conry's departure, Fairfield announced the promotion of volunteer Andy Whitley to assistant on Aug. 23. In addition to Warne's departure from Maryland, the Terps said goodbye to volunteer Brian Phipps, who joined Warne's staff at Georgetown along with former Cornell assistant Matt Rewkowski.
