All-Patriot League Performers under Slutzky: DB Ian Williams (2012, second-team)
Nate Slutzky, who served as a player development coach at Rutgers in 2009, is in his fourth year at Fordham in 2013. He will be responsible for the cornerbacks again this fall after guiding the outside linebackers his first two years at Rose Hill.
Last fall, cornerback Ian Williams earned Second Team All-Patriot League honors after leading the team with five interceptions and six pass deflections, both second best in the conference.
In 2011, Slutzky coached outside linebackers Andre Delaire and Nick Womack, who combined to make 129 tackles, including nine for loss, and three interceptions. Delaire ranked second on the squad with 81 total stops while Womack was seventh with 38.
In 2010, Slutzky directed the Fordham outside linebackers, including Bryson Wilson and Nick Womack, who combined for ten tackles for loss as the Rams' defense ranked third in the Patriot League and 41st in the NCAA FCS in rushing defense.
At Rutgers in 2009, Slutzky worked closely with the offensive coaches, players and academic staff as the Scarlet Knights earned a bid to the St. Petersburg Bowl after finishing the season with an 9-4 record.
Prior to his stint at Rutgers, Slutzky was the outside linebackers coach and assistant special teams coordinator at Albright College in Reading, Pennsylvania, from 2007-09, serving under former Fordham assistant coach John Marzka. His responsibilities included managing, evaluating and correcting the outside linebackers, strong safeties and nickel backs from practice and game film and assisting in preparing defensive game plans. Slutzky also served as the video coordinator for the Lions. He also was the junior varsity defensive/special teams coordinator, assistant recruiting coordinator, assistant strength/conditioning coach and academic coach.
Slutzky received his start in coaching at his alma mater, the University of Colorado, in 2007 where he was a football operations assistant. He was in charge of evaluating prospects on film, hosting visits, creating recruitment material for home visits and mailings and organizing database, film, and preparing recruiting board.
A 2007 graduate of Colorado, Slutzky received a Bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering with a minor in economics.
