However, before he coached a game for Fairfield, Masella returned to BU to be their head coach for two seasons. Masella returned to the assistant ranks for UConn, Louisiana Tech and UMass before becoming the head coach at Central Connecticut for two seasons. His longest head coaching stint was at Fordham for six seasons, which included a Patriot League title in 2007. Masella had three more assistant jobs at Wagner, UMass and Bryant before taking over the reins as Wagner’s head coach for the 2020 season.
Last Year: Wagner failed to win a game in Masella’s first full season as head coach.
Last Game: Wagner dropped its conference opener to Saint Francis 27-7. The Seahawks were outgained 370-232 in total yards.
With a chip on his shoulder he’s carried since Sheepshead Bay High School, @Wagner_Football linebacker Titus Leo (@LeoTitus10) has turned himself into a force: 2-time @NECFootball defensive player of the year, preseason All-American & maybe, a future prohttps://t.co/QTp3lnl4Ja— Greg Thompson (@gregthompson27) August 26, 2022
“Fear Me, I’ve Killed Hundreds of Timelords”: Defensive lineman Titus Leo is the two-time NEC defensive player of the year and is on the Reese’s Senior Bowl watchlist. Not bad for a FCS player.
If Syracuse Wins: One. More. Win… AND THEN WE BOWLING!!!!
If Syracuse Loses: Cancel the rest of football season. Full attention to Jim Boeheim.
Fun Fact: Wagner has not won a football game since September 28, 2019. That’s a 25-game losing streak.
