Mike McGarry is back for his fourth season on the Cardinals
coaching staff and second as the outside linebackers coach.
As the safeties coach, he coached James Fucillo (Class of 2012) to
an All South Region season. McGarry, who transferred to CUA from
Occidental College in Los Angeles, appeared in nine games for the
Cardinals in 2010 at safety. During that time he totaled 34
tackles, including 2.5 for loss, to go along with three passes
defended and three pass breakups.
During McGarry's time at Occidental, the Tigers never won fewer than seven games in a season and made the NCAA playoffs twice finishing nationally ranked in the top 15 in 2006 and 2008. As a junior at Occidental College, McGarry led the SCIAC conference with 15 passes broken up. As a freshman he averaged 28 yards as kickoff returner and 15 as a punt returner. In his three seasons at Occidental, he tallied over 75 tackles as a defensive back.
McGarry majored in Sociology at CUA and finished his degree in 2012.
