Coach Mauro Monz, '92, has 25 years of coaching experience at the collegiate, high school, and youth levels. He's also no stranger to the Rebel way, as he was the starting quarterback and defensive back for the Rebels when he attended Seton LaSalle.
After graduating from Seton LaSalle in 1992, Monz attended Duquesne University, where he was twice named All-Metro Atlantic Conference defensive back (‘94, ‘95) and was Co-Captain of the 1995 AA Non-Scholarship National Championship Team. Monz finished the 1995 season as a First Team All-American Defensive Back and graduated as the Duquesne Dukes’ all-time leader in interceptions.
In 1997, Monz accepted his first collegiate coaching role under Robert Morris University’s esteemed Head Coach Joe Walton. During his time at RMU, Coach Monz held several roles including Quarterback Coach, and was a major contributor to RMU’s five NEC Championships.
Some of the additional highlights from Monz’s 25 years in coaching include: setting offensive records as the Offensive Coordinator and Quarterback Coach for his alma mater Duquesne University in 2001-03; becoming the youngest Head Coach at any level in the country as the Head Football Coach at West Virginia University Institute of Technology in 2003; coaching five All-Conference Wide Receivers for the Akron Zips; leading Robert Morris to the University’s first championship run in a decade, and the school’s first NCAA 1AA playoff appearance, in 2010; serving as Head Coach for Carlynton High School in 2014; then serving as the Offensive Coordinator at Mt. Lebanon High School, where the Blue Devils’ explosive offense averaged nearly 30 points per game; and helping to spark the resurgence of Baldwin High School’s football program, where he worked alongside WPIAL’s 2018 Coach of the Year, Loren Cooley.
“Being entrusted with the future of the football program at my alma mater of Seton LaSalle is an incredible honor for me, both as a coach and as an alumnus,” says Monz. “I am humbled by the faith that Seton LaSalle’s Vetting Committee, President, Principal, and Administration have placed in me to teach and to lead a new generation of Rebels. My wife Dana and my father Edward are also Seton LaSalle alumni, so the school and its football program have meant a great deal to our family for decades. I am grateful to be able to share my love of the game, and of Seton LaSalle, with a new generation of players, and I am excited to lead these Rebels to new heights that uphold our tradition, our values and our proud history of championship-worthy efforts, both on and off the field.”
