Today, I'm excited to be joined by Coach EJ Barthel. E.J. Barthel, who competed on the gridiron for Rutgers and UMass, and spent the previous two seasons as a coaching assistant in the NFL for the Carolina Panthers has recently joined UConn football as the Running Backs Coach.
During his time in Carolina, Barthel assisted specifically with coaching the running backs and offensive line, while spending time in the pro personnel department. Prior to his time with the Panthers, Barthel served as the recruiting coordinator/running backs coach for William & Mary during the 2019 season and coached the running backs at Howard in 2018, and at Albany in 2017.
In 2016, Barthel was on staff at Penn State as the recruiting coordinator and came to State College from Temple, where he was the director of player personnel during the 2015 season. Barthel comes to the Huskies as a proven recruiter, as he helped PSU sign the nation’s fifth-highest rated recruiting class.
