Pedone, who also works directly with the tight ends, spent the previous 12 seasons as the offensive line coach, in addition to serving as assistant head coach for two years.

In his two years as offensive coordinator, Pedone has directed one of the most prolific offenses in the nation. During the 2008 season, he led a unit which ranked second in the country in passing offense (348.9 yards/game), sixth in total offense (455.5 yards/game) and 15th in scoring offense (34.4 points/game), while in 2009 the Crusaders stood fourth in the nation in passing offense (314.9 yards/game), sixth in total offense (433.6 yards/game) and 13th in scoring offense (32.2 points/game).

During his first 12 years at Holy Cross, Pedone developed several All-Patriot League offensive linemen, including David Cannon, Chris Conley, Jefferson Exil, Steve Fox, Jamie Grabowski, Hall McMillan, Dan Nolan, Patrick Quay and Andrew Schoepfer. In 2007, he led an offensive line which paved the way for the Crusaders to lead the Patriot League in scoring (35.9 points per game), total offense (463.4 yards per game) and passing offense (335.2 yards per game). Pedone’s offensive line also allowed just 14 sacks during the 2007 season.
