Jim Miceli is in his fourth season at Georgetown University. He will serve as the Hoyas offensive coordinator and tutor the quarterbacks.
Miceli came to the Hilltop after spending one season at Fordham (2004), serving as the program's recruiting coordinator and linebackers coach.
While at Georgetown, Miceli has overseen the development of quarterback Matt Bassuener, a 2008 graduate who went from walk-on to starter during his final two years on campus. Bassuener set a single-season record for most completions as a senior (211), holds the top two records in single-season completion percentage and threw for 1,874 yards in 2007, the seventh-best mark in school history.
A native New Yorker, Miceli went to Fordham from Bryant College, where he coached for five years (1999-2003). At Bryant, he started the football program from scratch and recorded a winning record in the program's first year. He established the school as a significant player in the Northeast-10 Conference, with a recruiting network that spanned the Northeast, the Mid-Atlantic region, Florida, and Texas. Since the program's inception, Bryant produced seven Verizon District I Academic All-America selections, including the 2001 ECAC Division II Scholar-Athlete of the Year.
Before his stint at Bryant, Miceli spent four seasons as an assistant coach and recruiting coordinator at the University of Maryland. In his four years with the Terrapins, Miceli's recruiting classes were recognized in the top-20 in the nation three times by a leading college football publication, while Miceli himself was tabbed as one of the 10 top recruiting coordinators in college football. Also at Maryland, Miceli coached the Terrapin quarterbacks, tight ends, receivers, punters and offensive linemen and served on the university's compliance committee.
Prior to his stint at Maryland, Miceli accepted the daunting task of rebuilding a fledgling program at Ramapo College. Named head coach at the Division III institution in 1988 and inheriting a team that was mired in a 1-29-1 losing streak, Miceli orchestrated an incredible turnaround, amassing a 33-9 record in four years. His teams won two New Jersey Athletic Conference championships, the 1990 ECAC South championship, and were nationally ranked in three of his four years at Ramapo, where he saw three players achieve All-America status, seven earn all-ECAC honors and 18 receive first-team all-conference recognition. Miceli was named the NJAC coach of the year in 1989.
Miceli's 10-year overall career coaching record is 54-37.
Miceli also spent two years as an assistant coach at the University of Pittsburgh from 1992-93, being responsible for tight ends and tackles.
Miceli is a 1979 graduate from Southern Connecticut State University where he received a degree in physical education, recreation and general science. He and his wife Mariann have three daughters: Victoria (22), Alexandra (20) and Elizabeth (14).
