    Coach Tricario to Leave Seawolves?

    Has Defensive Coordinator, Joe Tricario, coached his last game for the Stony Brook football Seawolves?

    According to a job posting on the Stony Brook University Human Resources site, put up on Jan. 9, 2009, the Seawolves are looking for a new defensive coordinator, along with an assistant head coach and two other assistant coaches.

    Head Coach Chuck Priore was non-committal when asked about the job listing ‘We’ll let you know when it’s the appropriate time.’ It’s nothing to be discussed now.’ When asked if Tricario was still the current coach, he said, ‘Oh yeah he’s still here.’

    Tricario joined the Seawolves in 2006 after eight years at Fordham, five as a defensive coordinator and three as a special teams coach. In 2007, the Seawolves defense ranked 25th in the nation among FCS schools in total defense. However, in 2008, the Seawolves total defense dropped to 65th and gave up 26.3 points a game.
