On Wednesday, Pitt announced that Jeff Capel had made another addition to his staff, hiring Jake Presutti as Assistant AD of Scouting.
“Jake has outstanding experience across several positions on a college basketball staff and is going to be a great addition to the culture we are building here at Pitt,” Capel said in a release. “We are fortunate to be in position to add another great resource to our program who will greatly aid our student-athletes and our staff in day-to-day preparation. With nearly a decade working on college, NBA and national team staffs, Jake has developed a great feel for carving out opportunities to help programs evolve. We look forward to having him on our staff and as part of the University of Pittsburgh community.”
Presutti is a native of Belmont, New York and played his college ball at Syracuse, beginning his career as a walk-on. In his coaching career, Presutti has made stops at Syracuse, Eastern Michigan, the Houston Rockets, Team USA, and most recently Marquette.
At Marquette, Presutti started as a video coordinator and then was elevated to director of basketball operations and later elevated to assistant coach.
