Will Fiacchi, a three-year team captain and former academic All-American, enters his second season on his alma mater's coaching staff in 2018. Fiacchi serves as the wide receivers coach and recruiting coordinator.
Fiacchi had come back to the Great Danes as an offensive assistant in 2017 after being a quarterbacks coach and video coordinator at St. John Fisher College in Rochester, N.Y.
A 2014 graduate of UAlbany, Fiacchi still ranks as the program's all-time leading passer with 7,150 career yards. He holds team records for most pass completions in a game (28), season (207) and career (602). He made 35 consecutive starts at quarterback.
"I am very pleased to add a former Great Dane star to our staff," Head Coach Greg Gattuso said upon Fiacchi's hiring. "Will had an outstanding career as a player here and knows our system and what we are trying to build.”
