 “Mike has done an outstanding job with our defense,” said head coach Geno DeMarco. “In particular he has helped develop some of the finest linebackers to ever wear a Geneva uniform.” Recently, Mike has taken the odd stack defense to a new level as a multiple look system, coordinating the input of position coaches.

Pinchotti is also the Strength and Conditioning Coordinator and has been instrumental in the overall development of the football program on and off the field. Mike has put his Masters of Organizational Leadership degree from Geneva College to good use by developing strength programs for other Geneva sport teams and football players in the off season. Along with the task of player development Pinchotti, plays a role as an assistant head coach to Coach DeMarco, where his years of management in the business world is a great asset to the Golden Tornado football program. Mike also holds responsibilities in the recruiting process and is accountable for garnering many recruits attention to the Geneva program.

Pinchotti spent his playing career at rival Westminster College and graduated in 1986 with an undergraduate degree in Communications, and earned a Master’s degree in Organizational Leadership in 2011 from Geneva College.

Pinchotti resides in North Sewickley Township with his wife, Tonya, and three children: Corinne, Karlee, and Michael.
