The guest on today’s Coach and Coordinator podcast is Vincent DiGaetano, now in his second season as volunteer special teams quality control assistant coach at Fordham University. Last season, Fordham finished second in the Patriot League in average yards per punt return, and was the only team in the conference to return a punt and kickoff for a touchdown. Prior to Fordham, DiGaetano spent two seasons at Wagner College as a defensive assistant. He also coached linebackers at Nassau Community College in 2015, spent 10 seasons at SUNY-Maritime from 2005-2014 and had four years at DeWitt Clinton High School (New York) as defensive coordinator.
DiGaetano was also defensive coordinator of the USA Football Select Team in the 2015 International Bowl, where his squad won 20-15. DiGaetano is part of the USA Football Master Trainer program.
On today’s show, DiGaetano and host Keith Grabowski talk about tackle grading and using systems like Hudl to track progress.
