Guilford Rounds Out 2011 Coaching Staff

More news about: Guilford

Guilford College rounded out its 2011 football coaching staff Thursday. First-year head coach Chris Rusiewicz added six new assistants and announced Chris Barnette '07 will take over as the Quakers' offensive coordinator.  Two newcomers, Zach Zullinger and Steve Terlesky, come to Guilford after coaching with Rusiewicz at Ursinus (Pa.) College. The other new coaches are James Brochu, Emmanuel Byers, Marty Collinson and Thomas Reese.

Barnette Now in his fifth season on Guilford's staff, Barnette (right) takes over his alma mater's offense from Dan Baranik, who took the head football coach post at Fishburne Military Academy in July. Barnette has contributed to the most prolific offensive era in Guilford's football history as both a student and coach. He caught a school-record 266 passes for 2953 yards and 30 touchdowns in his four-year career and was named a 2006 All-American by the American Football Coaches Association and D3football.com. Barnette earned his sport management degree in 2007 and started coaching the Quakers' receivers the same year. One of his protégés, Hagen Miller '10, broke Barnette's school receptions record and led NCAA Division III in catches per game in 2007. Four Guilford wideouts have earned All-Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) honors under Barnette's tutelage: Joe Joyner '07, Kevin Vaughn '08, Justin Parker '11 and Ben King '13. The Semora, N.C., native was an all-conference receiver and quarterback at Person High School for coach Mark Lunsford. His brother, Jamie, quarterbacked North Carolina State University from 1994-99.

Zullinger will coach the Quakers' special teams and defensive line in his return to the ODAC. He graduated from Guilford league-rival Hampden-Sydney College with a history degree in 2007 and played four seasons on the line for coach Marty Favret's club. The Manassas, Va., native helped the Tigers to a 29-11 (18-6 ODAC) record in four seasons. After college, Zullinger spent a year assisting Randolph-Henry (Va.) High School's gridders before joining Rusiewicz on head coach Peter Gallagher's staff at Ursinus in 2008. For three years, he coached the Bears' defensive linemen and served as the team's strength and conditioning coordinator. Zullinger helped Ursinus to the 2009 Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) Southeast Bowl and a share of the 2010 Centennial Conference title.

Terlesky also has a defensive background and will coach the Quakers' safeties in Guilford's 4-2-5 formation. He directed the defensive backs, defensive ends and linebackers in three seasons at Ursinus. One of his mentees, Chris Rountree, was named the ECAC Rookie of the Year and ranked eighth among 2009 NCAA Division III interception leaders. A college tight end, Terlesky spent two seasons at West Virginia University before finishing his playing career at NCAA Division II Indiana University of Pennsylvania. He played on coach Don Nehlen's West Virginia's Insight Bowl (1998) and Music City Bowl (2000) teams and was a member of two NCAA playoff teams at Indiana. Terlesky received his bachelor's degree in physical education/teaching education from West Virginia in 2004 and spent four years as an assistant football coach at Upper Dublin (Pa.) High School, his alma mater, before moving to Ursinus.

Brochu coaches Guilford's linebackers after completing a three-year stint on coach David Cutcliffe's staff at Duke University. The Blue Devils posted their most wins in 15 years in Brochu's first season (2009) and had two students earn All-America honors in his tenure. Prior to accepting the Duke position, he served as a graduate assistant football coach at Northern Illinois University. The Americus, Ga., native was a member of Coastal Carolina University's first football team in 2003 and earned a business management degree there in 2006. He played in 32 of 33 games over three seasons and helped coach David Bennett's Chanticleers to a 25-8 mark and two Big South Conference titles. Brochu was a scholastic standout at Sumter County High School where he was a three-time all-area pick and four-sport letter winner.

Byers, a former Ragsdale High School and University of Virginia player, will coach Guilford's running backs this season. The High Point, N.C., native started four seasons for coach Tommy Norwood at Ragsdale and was one of the state's top recruits as a senior. He went to Virginia where he played receiver and returned kicks for the Cavaliers from 2004-06. Byers helped Virginia win the 2005 Music City Bowl and appeared in 29 career contests. He earned his degree in psychology in 2009 and served as an assistant coach at Ragsdale the same year.

A familiar name in local high school circles, Collinson makes his college coaching debut as Guilford's cornerbacks coach in 2011. Collinson spent 33 years as a scholastic teacher and coach in nearby Randolph and Davidson counties. He served as head football coach at South Davidson High School from 2005-2008 and assisted coach Charlie Gregory's Randleman High School staff when the team captured three state titles from 1981-83. Collinson led Randleman's wrestling and boys' track and field teams to Piedmont Athletic Conference-6 championships in 2011. The Asheboro, N.C., resident wrestled three years and graduated from the University of North Carolina at Pembroke in 1978 with degrees in biology and physical education. He earned a master's degree in physical education from North Carolina A&T State University in 1984. Collinson and his wife, Sandra, have one adult daughter.

Reese starts his coaching career leading Guilford's receivers. He graduated from Wingate University in May with his degree in physical education. The Mars Hill, N.C., native played four seasons as a reserve quarterback under coach Joe Reich and helped the Bulldogs to the 2010 South Atlantic Conference (SAC) title and a 31-10 record in that time. Reese earned SAC Commissioners Honor Roll recognition and was a member of the school's Sport Sciences Club. He enjoyed an all-star football career at Erwin High School and captained both the football and track teams in high school.

Guilford opens the regular season Sept. 3 at Greensboro College in the 15th annual Gate City Soup Bowl.
