More news about: SUNY-Maritime

THROGGS NECK, N.Y. (August 16, 2013) – The Maritime football team is wrapping up its first week of preseason training camp and ninth-year head coach Clayton Kendrick-Holmes and his staff have been hard at work preparing the Privateers for the upcoming 2013 season. This season's coaching staff includes three new faces to the sidelines – Chris Capezzuto, Bill Martino and Charles Spencer.

"We have tapped into some outstanding local coaching talent to help take our player and coach support to the next level," commented Kendrick-Holmes.

Capezzuto will serve as the defensive quality control coach and will focus on assisting with the defensive backs during the 2013 season. He will also serve as the program's video coordinator, providing the coaches with practice and game tapes and exchanging video with opponents. Capezzuto is an employee of the New York City Department of Education, where he has served as a social studies teacher and dean for six years. He currently works at nearby Herbert H. Lehman High School.

Coach Capezzuto's previous coaching experiences include serving as the head coach at Palisade Preparatory School in Yonkers, N.Y., an assistant coach and special teams coordinator at Lehman, and assistant varsity coach/JV co-head coach at Clarkstown High School North. Capezzuto has also coached lacrosse, basketball, wrestling, and baseball over his 11 year coaching career.

Coach Capezzuto earned his bachelor's degree from St. Thomas Aquinas College (2003) where he also earned his master's in science of teaching (2006). He currently resides in Pearl River, N.Y.

Martino will work with the special teams units as a quality control coach and will specifically coach the kickers and punters for the Privateers. He brings 13 years of football coaching experience to Maritime, having worked as a coach at the high school and semi-pro levels.

Coach Martino also has 25 years of football officiating experience as a head referee with the public and Catholic high school leagues. He currently resides in Glen Cove, N.Y.

Spencer will serve as the quality control coach with the offense. Spencer has four years coaching experience at Henrico High School in Virginia and spent one season at Albright College in Pennsylvania.

Currently a student at Long Island University in Brooklyn, Coach Spencer is working towards a degree in sports science with an emphasis on sports management and coaching and conditioning. He resides in Far Rockaway, N.Y.

Along with the new additions to the staff, many of the returning coaching staff members will take on different responsibilities than in years past.

"We generally shuffle around some responsibilities each year, but this year we decided to make some bigger changes based on our team needs and specific coach skill sets," said Kendrick-Holmes. "I am thankful to have an experienced staff that can handle these changes. They have worked hard at their new positions beginning with spring drills and are ready for the season."

Fifth-year assistant Mike Stroud will be moving from linebacker coach to quarterback and fullback coach. Sixth-year assistant Rich Mercado will now handle the defensive backs after coaching the wide receivers last year. Associate head coach Al Piascik, who is in his sixth year with the squad, has moved from defensive backs coach to linebackers coach and will also add Special Teams Coordinator duties to his responsibilities.

Also, third-year assistant James Werner will coach wide receivers this year after handling running backs last season. Second-year assistant Josh Hinch moves from assistant defensive backs coach to running backs coach and second-year assistant Mark Conlon will add offensive coordinator duties to his responsibilities.

The Privateers kick off the season on Thursday, Sept. 12, under the lights at Clean Harbors Stadium in Buzzards Bay, Mass., for the Sixth Annual Chowder Bowl Game against rival Massachusetts Maritime Academy. Game time is schedule for 7 p.m.
