Former Montrose Christian head coach Kevin Sutton has been named an assistant men’s basketball coach at Georgetown University after a two-year stint at George Washington University.

Sutton joins a Georgetown men’s basketball program that finished 25-7 last season under head coach John Thompson III and said he relishes the opportunity to join the “new Big East” Conference.

“I’m honored to be a part of it,” said Sutton, “because I grew up watching Georgetown. I definitely know about the history of Georgetown.”

Prior to George Washington, Sutton, a Falls Church, Va. native, spent eight years at Montverde Academy where he built the boys basketball program into a national powerhouse.

During the 2010-2011 campaign, Sutton guided Montverde to a 22-4 record including a No. 13 final ranking in USA Today.

Sutton’s tenure at Montverde was highlighted by a national title in 2007 and a runner-up finish in the 2010 National High School Invitational.

In addition to holding various elite-level high school coaching positions, Sutton has also had collegiate coaching stints at James Madison University and Old Dominion University.

Sutton has coached at five nationally-ranked high school programs including Flint Hill Prep, Harker Prep, St. John’s Prospect Hall and Montrose Christian. He has also been selected as a coach for USA Basketball on three different occasions.

He has built a reputation of being an outstanding teacher of the game of basketball and helped more than 130 student-athletes earn college scholarships at all levels.

“I’m excited to have Kevin join my staff,” Thompson said in a statement. “I’ve known Kevin for a long time and he has built a tremendous reputation as a great teacher of the game. He’s a well-respected veteran in our game.”
