Rico Returns to Wesleyan Football

Former Major Leaguer Rico Brogna Hired by Wesleyan

Former major league baseball player Rico Brogna has been hired as an assistant football coach at Wesleyan University.
It will be Brogna's second stint with the Cardinals, where he coached the wide receivers in 2004. Head coach Frank Hauser said Brogna will help with the offense, but does not yet have a specific role.
Brogna, a former head baseball coach at Post University, most recently served as a high school football coach and a scout for the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Brogna was selected by the Detroit Tigers in the first round of the 1988 draft. He also played for the New York Mets and Philadelphia, where he had three straight 20-homer seasons and two consecutive years of 100 RBIs.
Brogna also had short stints in Boston and Atlanta before retiring in 2000.
