Meet Coach Paul

He's Ready to Compete!

Paul Capoccia was recently named director of the new esports program at Marywood University. One of a select number of colleges and universities across the nation to offer a competitive esports program, Marywood is responding to the ever-increasing number of students seeking this option, as the esports industry continues to explode throughout the country.

Realizing that any coach or director who expects their student athletes to perform well must be experienced in the field, Paul has been fortunate to have worked in esports long enough and hard enough to have tried nearly everything in the esports field, including functioning as a player, coach, administrator, manager, tournament organizer, caster, producer, observer, social media/marketing director, event lead, collegiate consultant, content creator, curriculum creator and coordinator, and more.
