Matt Rewkowski will begin his first year as an assistant coach on Ben DeLuca's staff with the University of Delaware men's lacrosse program in 2018.

Rewkowski spent the last five seasons assisting at Georgetown where he served under former UD assistant coach Kevin Warne, following a two-year tenure on DeLuca's staff as associate head coach at Cornell.

“Matt has extensive experience and success playing and coaching lacrosse at the highest levels," DeLuca said. "He is a gifted teacher with a strong work ethic and knows what it takes for our program to be successful on the field, in the classroom, and in the community. Most importantly to me, I believe Matt is a man of high character and outstanding values.

Rewkowski, who will serve as the offensive coordinator, is a 12-year veteran of the coaching ranks following an outstanding playing career at Johns Hopkins and Duke and a pro career with the Denver Outlaws of Major League Lacrosse. He was a senior co-captain for the Johns Hopkins team that captured the 2005 NCAA title and earned his degree there that same spring.

A native of Bethpage, N.Y., he began his coaching career at the University of Denver in 2006 before moving on to Delaware's CAA rival Hofstra where he served four seasons (2007-10) and led the Pride to 36 victories, two CAA titles, and three NCAA Tournament berths. He coached eight All-Americans and 27 All-CAA selections during his tenure and the 2010 team ranked No. 5 nationally in scoring (12.93 gpg).

Rewkowski moved on to Cornell and served for two seasons as DeLuca's associate head coach in 2011-12. He helped lead the Big Red to an NCAA Tournament quarterfinal berth in 2011 when the team won the Ivy League title, went 14-3 overall, and ranked No. 2 nationally in scoring at 12.7 goals per game. That squad was bolstered by USILA national Player of the Year Rob Pannell. Despite the loss of Pannell, the 2012 team still flourished on offense and ranked No. 9 in the nation in scoring (12.0 gpa).

He continued his success at Georgetown where he served the previous five seasons until this past spring. While with the Hoyas, he led consistently high-scoring offensive units that averaged over 10 goals per game twice and helped lead the Hoyas to the Big East Tournament Championship game in 2015. He coached numerous All-Big East selections and mentored 2015 All-American Craig Berge. Rewkowski showed his versatility by moving over to the defensive coordinator position this past spring. He led a unit that allowed nine or fewer goals five times on the season.

Rewkowski and his wife, Julie, are parents to son, Ryan, and daughter, Anna.
