Head Coach Rob Ianello named former Notre Dame assistant head coach, John Latina, as the new Akron Zips offensive coordinator and tight ends coach. After a few years of working together at Notre Dame, Ianello is confident of Latina’s abilities to lead the Akron Zips to success. Rob Ianello views John Latina as an “excellent teacher” who “understands the big picture of offensive football.” John Latina has had a prosperous record for turning out top-notch players.
Coach Latina was with Notre Dame from 2005 to 2008 as the offensive line coach, and spent six years at Ole Miss, shattering school records for the offensive line year after year. Prior to Ole Miss, John Latina also had the privilege to coach the Pittsburgh Panthers, the Virginia Tech Hokies and Kansas State. Coach Latina’s history of coaching and mentoring to-be NFLers, including Eli Manning, makes him a hot commodity to have as a coach.
John Latina is a Virginal Tech graduate and a native of New Castle, Pennsylvania. Latina also lettered four years as an offensive lineman for the Hokies before joining the Virginia Tech coaching staff as a graduate assistant. With Coach Latina’s help the year he began coaching, the Virginia Tech Hokies made it to the 1981 Peach Bowl.
