Rocco DiMeco Named Outside Linebackers Coach

WORCESTER, Mass. – The College of the Holy Cross football team has named Rocco DiMeco its new outside linebackers coach, as announced by head coach Tom Gilmore.

DiMeco spent the last two years at Anna Maria College, where he served as the co-defensive coordinator, linebackers coach and strength coach this past season. Among the players he coached was linebacker Jordan Koehler, who earned second team All-Eastern Collegiate Football Conference honors in 2012. DiMeco was previously the linebackers coach and strength coach for Anna Maria in 2011, when he helped the Amcats to their first two victories since adding football as a varsity sport in 2009.

A four-year starter at Norwich University as an inside linebacker, DiMeco served as team captain during his senior year and earned first team All-Eastern Collegiate Football Conference honors as a junior. He also led the Cadets to the Eastern Collegiate Football Conference title in 2009 with a perfect 6-0 mark in league games.

The Crusaders are currently taking part in spring practice, and are scheduled to play their annual spring game on Saturday, April 13.
