URI Football Staff Taking Shape
University of Rhode Island football coach Darren Rizzi has hired his defensive, offensive and recruiting coordinators.
Joe Trainer, head coach at Millersville University in Pennsylvania the last three years, is the new assistant head coach and defensive coordinator. He was an assistant coach at Villanova for eight years, defensive coordinator the last five, before taking the Millersville job in 2005. He and Rizzi were assistant coaches together Colgate and New Haven.
Chris Pincince of Woonsocket, offensive coordinator at Holy Cross, is assuming the same position at URI. He was also offensive coordinator at New Haven in the 1990s and is known for his wide open, pass-friendly schemes.
Mark Fadish, offensive coordinator at Monmouth University in New Jersey, is the new recruiting coordinator and receivers coach.
All three are starting this week. Rizzi is in Toronto with Rutgers for the International Bowl Saturday against Ball State and will join his assistants in Kingston next Monday. He hopes to hire the rest of his staff soon.
