Carl Capellas re-joins the Hiram College coaching staff for the 2018 season.
Capellas served as Hiram's head coach during one of the team's more productive stretches between 2004-2013.
During that time, Capellas helped the Terriers to their best-ever regular season record (15-2-1). In addition, he helped the program achieve a National rank of 9th, the highest ever by a Terrier program. The third-longest tenured coach in Hiram history, Capellas captained the ship for nine seasons, coming just one win shy of the career coaching record currently held by Murray Hartzler.
Capellas led the Terriers to six winning seasons in his final seven, earning NCAC Championship tournament berths in four of his final five.
Getting the most out of his players, Capellas led 43 to All-North Coast Athletic Conference honors, including 14 first-team, 10 second-team and and 19 honorable mention selections.
Along with those honors, Capellas coached Ryan Greenhill to NCAC Player of the Year honors, the first player to earn the award in Terrier history. Additionally, Greenhill was just the third Terrier to earn All-American honors, garnering second-team laurels.
Following the 2008 season, Capellas was named the Great Lakes Region Coach of the Year after guiding the Terriers to a 13-6 record and a second-place finish in the NCAC regular-season standings.
After his time with Hiram concluded, Capellas spent a full season as an assistant coach with the University of Akron.
Currently, Capellas works in sales and business development, as well as Director of the Sport and Education Academy with ProGrass Synthetic Turf Systems.
Capellas received his BA in Political Science and Spanish from Marshall University in 1997, graduating cum laude. He then graduated from Marshall with a MA in Politicial Science in '99.
Capellas currently resides in Kent, Ohio.
