   Nick Caserio   Director of Player Personnel
  Year: 9   Yrs/Pat: 9
  Acquired: 2001
  School: John Carroll University

Overview

Nick Caserio was named director of player personnel on February 21, 2008, after serving in a number of roles for the Patriots' personnel department and coaching staff. He enters his ninth season with the Patriots in 2009 and his seventh season in player personnel. He will oversee the day-to-day operations of the department.

In 2008, the Patriots completed the season with an 11-5 record, winning their final four games and five of their last six contests to tie the franchise's fifth-highest regularseason win total. New England finished the season with the third-highest offensive yardage total in team history (365.4 yards per game) and allowed fewer than 20 points per game (19.3) for the sixth time in the last eight years.

In 2007, Caserio served as the Patriots' wide receivers coach, tutoring a unit that combined for 292 receptions for 3,814 yards and 39 touchdowns - one season after the team's wide receivers totaled 156 catches for 1,798 yards and 15 touchdowns. The Patriots' 2007 wide receivers included All-Pro Randy Moss, who set an NFL record with 23 touchdown receptions, and Wes Welker, who tied for the NFL lead with 112 receptions - the highest reception total in NFL history for a player in his first season with a new team.

His return to the Patriots' sidelines came after a threeyear stint as the team's director of pro personnel (2004-06). Caserio joined the Patriots in June of 2001 as a personnel assistant and celebrated the Patriots' first Super Bowl title that season. During that year, his role was expanded to include film breakdown and scouting report preparation for the offensive staff. He became an offensive coaching assistant on Bill Belichick's staff in February of 2002, and returned to player personnel in 2003 as an area scout prior to becoming director of pro personnel in 2004. In addition to his duties in the personnel department, Caserio handled press box responsibilities for the coaching staff on game days from 2003-06.

Caserio entered the coaching ranks as a graduate assistant at Saginaw Valley State University in 1999 and spent two seasons with the program. Following a brief time with Central Michigan as a graduate assistant in the spring of 2001, he joined the Patriots scouting department.

Caserio was a standout player at John Carroll University, starting at quarterback in each of his four seasons where the teams compiled a 33-7-2 record. He was a two-time captain and three-time All-Conference performer. In 1997, he helped to lead the Blue Streaks to a 10-2 record and the school's second appearance in the NCAA Division III Tournament, where it advanced to the national quarterfinals.

Caserio is a native of Lyndhurst, Ohio. He was a teammate of former Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels at John Carroll. He earned his degree in finance from John Carroll and later earned his Master of Business Administration from Saginaw Valley State. Caserio was a three-time Academic All-Conference selection at John Carroll. Nick and his wife, Kathleen, were recently married on June 19, 2009.
