Robert Burke has been on the benches of several successful programs during his 22 years as a basketball coach. But after playing an assistant role in helping Siena, Princeton and Georgetown enjoy winning seasons, Burke is now running the show in Emmitsburg.

When the Mount lost head coach Milan Brown to Holy Cross in the offseason, it turned to Burke to keep the program at the top of the Northeast Conference. Burke had been serving as an assistant on Jeff Jones' staff at American.
"It's a great place where people care about basketball," Burke said. "At certain points in life, its time for a new challenge."
