Bobby Acosta was hired in March 2016 as Cornell’s wide receivers and tight ends coach before having to resign in October 2016 due to a family hardship. Acosta spent two seasons on the Syracuse staff under head coach Scott Shafer, working with the tight ends in 2014 and the wide receivers in 2015. He also spent the 2015 campaign as the program's recruiting coordinator, helping the Orange haul in 18 three-star recruits and five players ranked among the top 50 at their positions in the country according to 247 sports.

Prior to his stint at Syracuse, Acosta spent one year as head coach at Widener (2013) and five seasons as assistant coach at TCNJ (2008-12), the last four as offensive coordinator. That came on the heels of two seasons as the tight ends coach at Delaware, helping the Blue Hens to the 2007 FCS National Championship game and assisting in the development of future Super Bowl winning quarterback Joe Flacco. He served as head coach at both Marlboro HS (2002-04) and Monmouth Regional HS (2006-07), sandwiched around three years as wide receivers coach at TCNJ. Acosta began his coaching career at Rowan (1999-2001) as the team's defensive backs and special teams coach. In addition, he spent the 2008 (Cleveland Browns) and 2010 (New York Jets) NFL preseason serving coaching internships.

In his one season as head coach at Widener, the Pride went 6-4, and averaged 439.7 yards and 31.8 points per game. At TCNJ, his offense set school records for passing yards (2,491) and completions (269) in a season in 2012. During the 2009 campaign, the offense scored the most points in a single-season in program history (309), as wel las yards in a game (708 vs. FDU-Florham).

Acosta played four seasons at Rowan, helping the team to the Stagg Bowl - the Division III national championship game - each year. He graduated in 2000 with a degree in health and exercise science. Acosta and his wife, Alicia, have two children, Aiden and Sophia.
