|Title:||Assistant Coach - Defensive Line|
Assistant Coach Justin Embler begins his second season as a member of Coach Nofri's staff in 2013. Embler will once again work with the Pioneer defensive linemen this fall.
Embler joined the coaching ranks in 2012 after wrapping up a successful playing career for Sacred Heart from 2008 through 2011. He turned his best season as a senior when he earned All-Northeast Conference second team honors. Embler made 60 tackles in 2011, registering 16.5 tackles for a loss. That stat was good for second in the NEC, behind only his teammate linebacker Chris Mandas. He also forced two fumbles and hauled in an interception. In his final game at Campus Field, Embler dove on a fumble in the end zone for a SHU touchdown against Duquesne.
Over his career, Embler finished with 192 total tackes from his defensive end position. He totalled 10.5 sacks over his four seasons.
