Matt Marotta joined coach Langan's staff in August 2013. He came to Felician after one season as an assistant at his alma mater, St. Thomas Aquinas College.
In Marotta's first season as Felician's pitching coach in 2014, the Golden Falcons set school records for team earned-run average (3.07) and shutouts (6) en route to their first Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference championship. Felician broke the latter mark with eight shutouts in winning the CACC title again in 2016. Marotta has helped guide three Golden Falcons to the CACC Pitcher of the Year Award -- Jerry Vasto (2014), Matt Blandino (2016), and John Holland (2017).
After beginning his collegiate career at Division-I New Jersey Institute of Technology, Marotta spent three seasons as a pitcher/shortstop at STAC. As a senior in 2012, he was named the East Coast Conference Pitcher of the Year and to the Daktronics All-America Team. He posted an 8-2 record, two saves, and a 1.94 earned-run average, and led all Division-II pitchers nationally by allowing just 5.31 hits per nine innings.
Marotta amassed 106 base hits and 114 pitching strikeouts in three years at STAC. He also played one season on the Spartans' golf team. In February 2017, STAC head baseball coach Scott Muscat bestowed upon Marotta the Spartan Baseball All-Star Team Award.
Marotta is an owner and operator of the Power Arm Performance instructional facility in Ramsey. He is also a certified advanced personal trainer. He formerly coached with the NJ Savages and Rockland Cobras summer travel programs.
A 2007 gradaute of Don Bosco Prep, Marotta holds the Ironmen's single-season record for batting average at .551. A native of Suffern, N.Y., he resides in Wallington.
