Head Coach Peter Wilk
The 2013 season marks the 13th season at the helm of the Georgetown baseball program for Head Coach Pete Wilk. Since taking over the Hoyas in the summer of 1999, Wilk has rebuilt the program and his 224 wins make him the all-time winningest coach in the program's history.
During his tenure on the Hilltop, Wilk has implemented a Career Night for current Hoya baseball players to get career advice and network with GU baseball alumni. Wilk has also initiated the preseason First Pitch Dinner which is a fundraiser exclusively for the baseball program. The inaugural First Pitch Dinner in 2005 featured Terry Francona, manager of the World Champion Boston Red Sox, as the guest speaker and television and radio personality Mike Barnicle as the emcee. Since that time, other sports luminaries such as ESPN analyst Tim Kurkjian, Hall of Fame catcher Johnny Bench, legendary United States hockey goalie Jim Craig and Major League pitcher Jamie Moyer have joined the Hoyas at their season-opening event.
Before becoming head coach at Georgetown in 2000, Wilk served as an assistant coach with the Hoyas for the 1998 and 1999 seasons.
Wilk came to the Hilltop in the fall of 1997 after serving as the head baseball coach at Acton-Boxboro High School in Massachusetts, where he helped turn around a program that previously went 3-17 into a 13-10 team that made an appearance in the 1996 state semifinals.
Prior to coaching at Acton-Boxboro, Wilk served as an assistant coach at Harvard University for four years (1992-95). He began his collegiate coaching career at Boston University where he was an assistant coach for two seasons (1990-91). In addition to his Georgetown coaching duties, Wilk was an assistant coach for the Harwich Mariners of the prestigious Cape Cod summer league, which won the Eastern Division title in 1997 before the Barrington, R.I., native took over the helm of the Mat-Su Miners of the Alaska Baseball League in 1998 and 1999.
Wilk has a wealth of international baseball experience. He has previously worked baseball clinics in the Dominican Republic (2000, `01, `02, `05), as well as in Germany (1996) and Sweden (1994) for Major League Baseball. In January 2001, he worked a clinic in Oslo for the Norwegian Baseball Federation.
Wilk is a 1987 graduate of Rollins College, where he earned a degree in American Studies.
He and his wife, Erin, live in Virginia, with their daughter, Reese.
Associate Head Coach Curtis Brown
Curtis Brown, entering his sixth season with the Georgetown baseball team, was promoted to Associate Head Coach/Recruiting Coordinator in September 2010.
Brown has been the pitching coach and recruiting coordinator at Georgetown for the last four seasons. In that role, Brown has assisted in all facets of running the baseball program. His duties have included recruiting, travel, scouting, academic review, and budget maintenance.
"It's a great pleasure to promote Curtis," Head Coach Pete Wilk said. "He's been a vital part of our program the last four years and has done a tremendous job with our pitching staff. We've been able to make some moves upward in the BIG EAST Conference and a lot of that credit goes to the hard work Curtis has put in."
Brown came to Georgetown after previous stops at Radford, Richmond, Wake Forest and with Bethesda-Chevy Chase Baseball Inc. in Maryland. He served as the head coach of the U16 Maryland Patriots and the BCC Bulldogs. During his time in Bethesda, he was the Director of College and Prep Presentations while providing lessons and clinic instruction. From 2004-06, he was the Personal Recruiting Director for Baseball Factory Inc., which entailed assisting both high school seniors in their college search, and coaches in their quest to find the right players.
Brown was the pitching coach and recruiting coordinator at the University of Richmond from 2000-03. During his tenure there, Brown was either involved in, or in charge of, every aspect of the Spiders program. During 2002 and 2003, Richmond posted the fourth-best winning percentage in the entire country. The Spiders won consecutive Atlantic-10 regular season championships and the pitching staffs finished in among the top-20 in 2002 and top-10 in 2003. Numerous players coached by Brown went on to win all-conference, all-region and national accolades.
