NEWBERRY – Head coach Todd Knight has promoted former tight ends coach Nick Kamerer to a full-time coaching position with the running backs.
"I am really encouraged to be given an opportunity to continue my stay here at Newberry College," Kamerer said. "To work for Coach Knight and with his excellent staff, whose support has been unparalleled over the past 3 years, is to go to work every day doing what I love to do, which is coach football. I could not be more thankful for Coach Knight, our staff, our great young men on the team, and everyone involved with Newberry College athletics who supports and values the Wolves."
"A lot of people don't have the kind of patience that Coach K does," said Knight. "It doesn't always happen this way. But he's put in the work and we've been able to reward him. It makes you feel good to be able to elevate someone that's been with you a while".
Kamerer has been with the Wolves’ program since the 2014 season, spending all three years coaching the tight ends. He begins mentoring the Newberry running backs following Hunter Spivey’s departure to become Valdosta (Ga.) High School’s Offensive Coordinator.
Junior Baptiste Staggers became the most decorated tight end under Kamerer’s tutelage this season; he earned first team honors from the South Atlantic Conference, an Eastern College Athletic Conference All-Star nod, and was named third team all-Super Region 2 by Don Hansen’s Football Gazette.
Zach Edmunds was Kamerer’s first all-conference understudy. He received second team honors from the SAC in 2015.
