Geoff Rhatican enters his fifth season as Trinity football’s quarterbacks coach in 2019, and was promoted to passing game coordinator in January of 2018. Currently in his second coaching stint with the Bantams, Rhatican returned to Hartford where he previously served as Trinity’s running backs coach while earning his master’s degree in public policy & law from 2010 to 2012. He played a major role in the development of All-NESCAC Trinity quarterback Sonny Puzzo who led the Bantam attack that ranked first in scoring offense in both 2016 and 2017.
Rhatican came back to Trinity from NESCAC rival Bowdoin, where he mentored Tyler Grant to an All-NESCAC season and a league rushing title. In 2013, Rhatican was a member of the Bates coaching staff where he worked with All-NESCAC slotback Shawn Doherty. As a graduate assistant at Trinity for Coach Devanney, Rhatican coached Evan Bunker, the all-time leading rusher in NESCAC history, and three-time All-NESCAC selections Ben Crick and Michael Budness.
Rhatican is a 2008 graduate of Brown University, where he played quarterback and wide receiver for the Bears after completing his prep career at Dallas Jesuit in Texas. As an undergraduate, he was a member of Brown’s only outright Ivy League Championship team in 2005. His resume also includes a coaching stint at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy, where he coached Sam England and Eric Gerkin, the top two all-time leading receivers in school history.
