Mike DiAngelo Named Assistant Football Coach At Arizona
WASHINGTON, Pa. -- The University of Arizona recently hired Washington & Jefferson College Special Teams Coordinator and Secondary Coach Mike DiAngelo as a defensive graduate assistant coach.
DiAngelo spent the previous six seasons as a member of the W&J football staff. While with the Presidents, DiAngelo coached the team’s secondary and special teams for two years after primarily working on the offensive side of the ball with the quarterbacks and wide receivers during his first four seasons.
DiAngelo helped the Presidents win their 22nd Presidents’ Athletic Conference Championship and NCAA Division III playoff appearance this past fall.
He played an important part in the development of placekicker/punter Eric Eberle ‘14, who became W&J’s first-ever All-American kicker after booting 11 field goals during the 2012 season.
In his position at Arizona, DiAngelo replaces former W&J defensive coordinator Matt Caponi, who was recently elevated to safeties coach by Arizona Head Coach Rich Rodriguez. Caponi, a Baldwin High School graduate, spent three seasons (2008-10) as the Presidents’ defensive coordinator.
