Anthony DiMichele Named Assistant Football Coach
WORCESTER, Mass. – The College of the Holy Cross football team has added Anthony DiMichele to its coaching staff, as announced by head coach Tom Gilmore. DiMichele will serve as an assistant coach on the defensive side of the ball.
DiMichele joins the Crusaders after serving as the secondary coach at the University of New Haven for the last two years. He helped lead the Chargers to a 13-5 record in Northeast-10 Conference play during that time, with the team finishing second in the league in 2015 and third in 2016. Prior to his time at New Haven, DiMichele was an assistant coach at Sto-Rox High School in McKees Rocks, Pa., for three seasons.
DiMichele is a 2011 graduate of Holy Cross, and was a three-year starter and four-year letterwinner in the secondary for the Crusaders. A two-time All-Patriot League selection, he also earned third team All-America honors from the Sports Network in 2009. DiMichele finished his career with 237 total tackles, nine tackles for loss, four interceptions and 20 pass breakups.
Following his graduation, DiMichele spent one season playing overseas for the Seamen Milano in Italy. He also earned a master’s degree in sport management from New Haven in 2016.
The Crusaders will look to contend for the Patriot League championship in 2017 with the return of 12 starters. Holy Cross is set to play five games at Fitton Field this fall, beginning with the home opener against New Hampshire on Sept. 16. Other key home dates will come against Lafayette (Sept. 30), Monmouth (Oct. 7), Colgate (Oct. 21) and Georgetown (Oct. 28).
