Joe Coniglio arrives in Los Angeles after coaching at the college level since 2009. Most recently, he was with Navy, coaching the strikers and raiders in 2022 after serving as a defensive assistant for the Midshipmen in 2021. 

Navy finished sixth in the nation against the run in 2022, which is even more impressive when you consider it was the only defense ranked in the top 25 that faced three of the top-10 rushing offenses in the country. Navy also finished eighth nationally in fewest first downs allowed, 20th in sacks, 22nd in fumbles recovered and 30th in total defense.
Senior striker John Marshall finished fourth in the nation in sacks and tackles for a loss per game while setting school records for sacks in a season and game. Marshall was the only unanimous First-Team All-American Athletic Conference selection in 2022.

In 2021, despite playing one of the toughest schedules in the country, the Navy defense acquitted itself well by finishing 32nd in the nation in rushing defense (130.4 yards per game), 51st in passing defense (218.2 yards per game), 34th in total defense (348.6 yards per game) and 34th in red zone defense (.778).

Coniglio came to Navy from Kent State, where he was the outside linebackers and defensive recruiting coordinator since 2019.

Coniglio helped lead the Golden Flashes to their first bowl win in school history with a 51-41 victory in the 2019 Tropical Smoothie Cafe Frisco Bowl.

In 2020, Kent State finished 3-1 in a COVID-shortened season.

Coniglio spent three seasons at Kent State from 2009-2011, while earning a master’s degree. His roles included special assistant to the head coach, defensive graduate assistant, video coordinator and defensive volunteer.  Working closely with the Flashes’ defensive line, Coniglio helped develop future NFL players Roosevelt Nix, Ishmaa’liy Kitchen and Monte Simmons.  During that period, Kent State’s defense ranked in the top tier of numerous NCAA categories, including 10th in the nation in total defense in 2010.  In 2011, the Flashes ranked 21st in total defense, while the 2009 squad was fourth in tackles for loss and 17th in sacks.

Coniglio was the defensive line coach at Northern Michigan in 2012-13 and five seasons at Rhode Island, where he served as defensive line coach, special teams coordinator and recruiting coordinator.

Rhode Island was also among national (FCS) leaders in numerous defensive categories during Coniglio’s time with the Rams. In 2017, Rhode Island was the only defensive line in the nation to have five players with five or more sacks and 10 or more tackles for loss.  The Rams broke the program’s sack record that season and produced their third different all-conference player during Coniglio’s time. In 2018, URI ranked 31st in the FCS in total defense. 

On special teams, the 2018 Rams ranked in the top 20 in punt return defense, kick return average and punt return average. Coniglio also brought recruiting success to URI in 2016, when the Rams ranked first in the Colonial Athletic Association according to 247 Sports. 

A two-time All-Mid-American Conference defensive end at Miami, Coniglio was a three-year starter and three-year winner of the RedHawks’ Vic Waltz Defensive Lineman of the Year award.  Coniglio helped Miami win three MAC East titles and ranks fifth among the program’s sack leaders.

Coniglio and his wife, Jessa, have a daughter, Anna, and two sons, Joseph and Matthew.
