Western Michigan names Esposito D-line coach
Esposito spent the past five seasons serving as the head coach at Saint Joseph’s College (Ind.) and was named the Great Lakes Football Conference Coach of the Year.
“To say I am excited about this opportunity would be an understatement,” Esposito said in a statement released by the school. “Having worked with many members of the WMU coaching staff in the past, I know what type of program Bill Cubit has built in Kalamazoo and I look forward to doing my part to help continue it on a path of success.”
Esposito also served as the team’s defensive coordinator at Saint Joseph's. He defenses ranked first in the conference in turnover margin and sacks in 2009 and ranked 13th in the nation in turnover margin in 2008.
He is a two-time coach of the year in Great Lakes conference and his team won two conference championships during his tenure. Saint Joseph’s was 30-25 under Esposito and had a 100 percent graduation rate for four-year student-athletes over six years.
