First-year Saint Leo University women’s basketball coach Anthony Crocitto added the final piece to his coaching staff, naming Dominic DiRaimo as an assistant.
With DiRaimo’s hiring, Crocitto has ushered in an entirely new coaching staff for the women’s basketball program.
DiRaimo previously served as an assistant coach at St. Catherine College (Kentucky), where he worked with fellow Lions assistant Megan Dzikas.
He was in charge of scouting reports, video, strength and conditioning, recruiting, and also served as the head coach of the junior varsity team.
Prior to St. Catharine, DiRaimo served as a student manager and assistant video coordinator for the University of South Florida women’s basketball team.
“Dominic will immediately strengthen our staff in many ways,” Crocitto said, in a release. “He worked under Jose Fernandez at the University of South Florida and was great at breaking down film, and helping the Bulls in any way they needed. I appreciate Coach Fernandez recommending him and know we will be stronger with him overall. It is also a plus that he worked with my top assistant, Megan Dzikas, as the process of connecting us all together will be smoother.”
DiRaimo’s responsibilities under Crocitto include coaching guards; handling junior college recruiting, scouting, fundraising; breaking down film; and, assisting with travel and academics.
“Dominic will do many things as he works with multiple agendas on and off the court,” Crocitto said. “I am very pleased to add Dominic as we begin a new year here at Saint Leo University. Dominic will work hard, and I know he will respect our values to the fullest.”
