Kelly resigns at Georgetown to join Ball State staff

Washington, DC (SportsNetwork.com) - Georgetown head football coach Kevin Kelly announced his resignation after eight seasons Thursday to become the defensive coordinator at Ball State.

Rob Sgarlata, a 1994 Georgetown graduate who is the team's assistant head coach and defensive coordinator, was named the interim head coach. Georgetown, the only Patriot League program that does not award football scholarships, announced it will conduct a national search for its next head coach.

"We are grateful to Coach Kelly for his service to Georgetown and for his devotion to the education and overall development of his players," athletic director Lee Reed said. "While on the Hilltop, he embraced the challenge of coaching this program in the highly competitive Patriot League and has helped to build a strong foundation. We wish him well in his new position."

Kelly compiled a 24-63 record at Georgetown, including 2-9 overall and 1-4 in the Patriot League last season. The Hoyas posted an 8-3 record and Patriot League runner-up finish in 2011, when Kelly was named the league's coach of the year and he was a finalist for the Eddie Robinson Award as FCS coach of the year.

At Ball State, Kelly will coach the inside linebackers in addition to being the defensive coordinator under head coach Pete Lembo, a Georgetown graduate.

Sgarlata has been a part of the Hoyas' coaching staff for the past 18 seasons. He ranks among the program's all-time rushing leaders.

Georgetown is the 27th FCS program with a head coaching change since just before the 2013 season.
