More news about: Lycoming

WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. – Chris Monfiletto has been appointed Lycoming College's acting director of athletics, effective immediately, and will continue his role as a member of the football team's coaching staff, Vice President for Administration and Planning Sue Gaylor, who oversees athletics, announced on Thursday, July 7. According to Gaylor, Monfiletto was chosen out of a pool of five finalists, each of whom had considerable talents and strengths.

"I am delighted that Chris Monfiletto has agreed to step into the Acting Director of Athletics position," said Lycoming President Dr. James Douthat. "He has the experience, confidence and skills to do a great job for the Athletic Department and for our student-athletes. Chris has held impressive leadership roles at several colleges and preparatory schools and is well prepared to take on the responsibilities of the athletic director. Like his predecessor, Scott Kennell, he will lead a program steeped in a strong heritage of caring and long-serving administrators such as David Busey, Dutch Burch and Frank Girardi."   

The football team's offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach, Monfiletto replaces Kennell, who served as director of athletics the last three years before accepting a similar position at Pennsylvania College of Technology.

Monfiletto, who completed a master's degree in athletic administration from Ohio University in June, brings a wealth of experience and energy to the position, having served in a variety of roles at different institutions, including working in admissions and financial aid, as a guidance counselor, a history teacher and a residence life director. He has also served as a head and assistant football coach as well as a recruiting coordinator.

"I am very excited and I would like to thank President Douthat and Dr. Gaylor for this opportunity," Monfiletto said. "Lycoming is a unique place, where we have almost 1,400 students and 17 athletic programs and nearly a quarter of our student body is involved in intercollegiate athletics. I see the athletic department as a reflection of the greater institution and I look forward to working with everyone on campus to facilitate an athletic program that we can be very proud of.

"I love the student-athletes here at Lycoming and I am looking forward to working with all of them."

Monfiletto came to Lycoming as the football team's passing game coordinator and quarterbacks coach in 2010. He immediately helped the team's offense average nearly 1.3 more yards per play than in 2009 and earned a promotion to offensive coordinator at the end of the season.

Along the way, Monfiletto helped mentor first-year quarterback Zach Klinger while the Warriors cut their turnovers in half and scored 3.9 more points per game. Monfiletto also coached All-MAC First Team selection Ryan Wagaman at wide receiver while helping the team finish above .500 for the second time in three years.

"I have had the great fortune of knowing Chris for 11 years, first as a student-athlete and then as a friend and a co-worker," Lycoming head football Mike Clark said. "Chris is an outstanding choice to be our director of athletics. He is intelligent and energetic. I look forward to working with him to help him fulfill his goals for the entire athletic department."

Monfiletto came to Lycoming after serving as head football coach of the Western Reserve Academy in Hudson, Ohio, for two years. In 2008, he led the Pioneers to a 6-3 record while installing a West Coast offense at the school.

In addition to his role as football coach, Monfiletto also worked in the school's admissions and financial aid department, helping to maintain a $3.6 million financial aid budget. He also served as a college guidance counselor at the school, helping to match prospective colleges with his advisees, as well as developing a Sophomore Program for underclassmen to begin the college search process.

Before joining Western Reserve, Monfiletto spent three years as an assistant football coach at Davidson College, serving as recruiting coordinator from 2005-07, helping the team to two winning seasons. Monfiletto also served as running backs coach at Davidson, coaching two of the top 10 rushers in school history.

In 2004-05, he served as the special teams coordinator and wide receivers/defensive backs coach at his high school alma mater, the Hun School, leading the team to the New Jersey Prep A state title in 2004. While at Hun, Monfiletto also served as a history teacher, teaching two sophomore American History classes, and residence life director, serving as the lead administrator for the program for boarding students.

Monfiletto earned four letters as a wide receiver at Davidson, where he was mentored by Coach Clark before earning a bachelor's degree in history in 2004. He served as the team captain in 2003 and was a two-time member of the Pioneer Football League Academic Honor Roll.

He was a prep school standout at the Hun School, earning 10 letters in football, basketball and baseball and serving as captain of the football and baseball teams.

Monfiletto, who resides in Williamsport, is engaged to Emily Palmer and will be married on July 16, 2011.
