Georgetown University football coach Kevin Kelly announced Tuesday that Vinny Marino has joined the staff as the offensive coordinator.

Marino has 20 years of coaching experience, including the last six as Columbia's offensive Coordinator and quarterbacks coach.

"Vinny comes very highly recommended from people that I know and respect in the business," Kelly said. "He really is the total package and fits all of the criteria we were looking for in a coordinator. He has experience and success as an offensive coordinator, he's done an excellent job tutoring quarterbacks and has an extensive background of recruiting at academic institutions."

A graduate of Connecticut, Marino was an assistant coach with the Huskies. He also has been a college assistant at Rhode Island, Richmond, Holy Cross and Bowdoin.
