First year Nebraska baseball head coach Will Bolt announced on Monday that he had added Danny Marcuzzo to his staff as a volunteer assistant. The Omaha native spent last season as an assistant coach and recruiting coordinator at Coffeyville Community College.
“We are excited to have Danny and his wife Erin join our staff and bring them back to their home state of Nebraska,” Bolt said in a press release. “Danny brings a wealth of collegiate coaching experience in the Midwest as well as high character and an impressive work ethic. Danny will make us better in every area and we are fortunate to have him join the Husker family.”
Marcuzzo is the replacement for Curtis Ledbetter, who who had transitioned into the volunteer assistant role in former head coach Darin Erstad’s final season at NU after he had spent a decade as the Husker’s director of operations.
“It’s a dream come true to be a part of the Nebraska baseball tradition,” Marcuzzo said. “I am looking forward to doing whatever I can to help this program be as successful as possible.”
Prior to joining Coffeyville’s staff, Marcuzzo spent two years at Central Oklahoma, where he helped lead the Broncos to the 2018 Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association regular season title and qualify for the NCAA Division II Regionals.
Also 2015 and in 2016, Marcuzzo coached both the hitters and infielders at Butler Community College. Additionally, he coached with Midwest Nationals for four summers.
Marcuzzo graduated with bachelor’s degree from Western Illinois in 2012 before getting his Master’s from Central Oklahoma in 2017.
He’ll join hitting coach/recruiting coordinator Lance Harvell and pitching coach Jeff Christy on staff.
