Larry Antonucci, who has spent 14 seasons at USF, was promoted in 2008 to the role of assistant athletics director for football operations.
For the last 13 seasons, Antonucci has handled all operational aspects of the USF program, including all travel plans and all arrangements at Raymond James Stadium for USF home games. Until 2004, with the arrival of Carl Franks, Antonucci had also coordinated all of USF's recruiting efforts. His experience in that field continues to aid USF's efforts.
Antonucci is no stranger to the coaching ranks, having worked as a coach since his graduation from Wagner in 1993. He remained at Wagner upon completing his bachelor's degree in 1993, where he was a graduate assistant responsible for working with the tight ends and offensive tackles.
In 1994, Antonucci was hired as a full-time offensive line coach at St. Peter's College, where he was also the run game coordinator and recruiting coordinator. Furthermore, he helped administrate the strength & conditioning program.
Antonucci moved on to Emporia State in 1995, where he coached the receivers in 1995-96 and the defensive line in 1997-98. He also coached the kick and punt return teams throughout his four seasons, prior to first joining the USF program in spring 1999.
In his first year at USF as a graduate assistant, Antonucci worked primarily with the offensive line and tight ends, but he also assisted with the remainder of the offense.
As a player at Wagner, Antonucci started 33 straight games from 1990-92, playing tight end, offensive tackle and offensive guard. He earned a bachelor's degree in special education in 1993.
Antonucci and his wife Danielle have two sons, Johnny and Joseph.
