Ask any head coach in America how they got their start, and they’ll tell you they started at the bottom, then slowly through connections — and lots of time — made their way up to where they are now. Arizona’s first year safeties coach, Matt Caponi, is no different. In 2012, Caponi spent his first year at the UA as a graduate assistant under head coach Rich Rodriguez. A year later, Caponi has been promoted to safeties coach and says feels at home in Tucson.
