Jake Presutti has joined the Marquette University men's basketball program as its video coordinator and the 2014-15 campaign will mark his first with the team.
A former men's basketball player at Syracuse, Presutti most recently served as special assistant for the USA Basketball Senior Men's National Team. His work with USA Basketball included film evaluation and statistical analysis of the player pools for both the Senior Men's National Team and the Senior Men's National Select Team.
"Jake has done an impressive job gaining a wide variety of experience early in his career," Wojciechowski said. "His versatility and skill set will be valuable assets to our program and I am excited about his addition to our staff."
Presutti spent two seasons (2011-13) Eastern Michigan University, where he served under former Syracuse assistant coach Rob Murphy as the Director of Player Development. With the Eagles, he was responsible for film exchange, video edits and complete scouting reports for each opponent.
Presutti joined the EMU program after working with the NBA's Houston Rockets as an assistant in basketball operations. His duties for the Rockets included video breakdown as well as reports on all college and international draft eligible prospects and NBA trade targets.
The 28-year-old Presutti, a native of Belmont, N.Y., was originally a walk-on at Syracuse before earning a scholarship in his senior year. He completed his bachelor's degree in child and family studies in 2008.
Presutti worked as a support staff member in multiple national basketball trials beginning in 2007 and in 2009 he worked at the USA Basketball World University Games and the USA Basketball U-19 Trials. He also served time as the video coordinator for the Canadian Men's National Team at the FIBA Americas in 2009.
He then returned to Syracuse as a graduate men's basketball manager in 2009-10. His duties at Syracuse included working closely with the coaching staff on opponent scouting reports, opponent film breakdown and assisting with practice sessions.
Presutti attended Genesee Valley High School, where he played soccer, basketball and baseball as a prep. He won several awards in his basketball playing career, being named the 2004 Great Eight League Player of the Year, the 2004 Big 30 Player of the Year, was a third-team all-state selection and the 2004 Section V Most Valuable Player. His high school was the 2002, 2003 and 2004 Section V basketball champions and the soccer and baseball teams were Section V champions in 2003.
Presutti and his wife Brittany were married in July of 2012 and the couple has one son, Lincoln. His brother, Zach, is a New York Province Jesuit studying social work at Saint Louis University.
