Central Connecticut men's soccer interim head coach Dave Kelly has added Carson D'Ambrosio and Bryan Zobre to his staff for the 2022 season it was announced. The pair are both CCSU alumni and D'Ambrosio will be the Director of Analytics and Zobre will serve as Assistant Coach.

"It's great to be able to welcome Carson back to Central," said Kelly. "He was an outstanding student-athlete for us, and he'll be great in the newly created position of Director of Analytics. He will be responsible for video analysis of the team, and opposition analysis. He will track key performance indicators, and provide reports to the coaching staff and team."

D'Ambrosio graduated from Central Connecticut in 2018 and earned his Master's in Strategic Communication in May 2020. He played in 40 career games for the Blue Devils from 2014-18 and made 142 career saves, while serving as a team captain.

He helped CT Fusion to win the UWS East Conference and advance to the national finals. D'Ambrosio also has experience as a video editor/analyst with FSA FC. He holds a USSF National D License

"Having coached Bryan at the PDL level, and then later having him join my staff, I know he's a talented, dedicated professional," said Kelly. "He brings a wealth of experience in the area of fitness, strength and conditioning, and has his Bachelor's from CCSU in Exercise Science."

Zobre has extensive experience as both a coach and former player. He played at CCSU from 2005-07 where he earned his degree in Exercise Science. He would go on to play with the Mass Twisters (NISL), Harford City FC Colts (NPSL), Western Mass Pioneers (USL Second Division) and CFC Azul (US PDL).
