“As a coach, I care more about the whole student-athlete rather than just the player. There is a common saying, that the four years of college dictates the next 40 years of your life. What I say to our prospective student-athletes is that you have these years to make the right decision about the next four years; these years will be as impactful on your life as any possibly could be.”
Coach lives in Madison CT with his wife, Kris. He is also the proud father of 22-year-old triplets, Patrick, Matthew, and Mikayla.
