“As we begin the 2017 season, I am looking forward to working with two new additions to our coaching staff, Thomas Nocito and Todd Bradshaw,” said Karbowski. “Tom brings a great insight and passion for the game. His ability to analyze and evaluate, and his detailed approach will be a welcome addition. Todd will focus on training the goalkeepers and brings a variety of experience. He provides an excitement and enthusiasm to the position to go along with his knowledge of the game. Along with returning Coach Church, I am fortunate to have Tom and Todd joining our program to provide a great atmosphere and strong leadership for the team.”
A native of nearby Burnt Hills, New York, Nocito matriculates to Siena after spending last season as the boys’ soccer junior varsity head coach at South Colonie High School. He has also spent the past four years coaching camps locally at Afrim’s Sports.
