Sean Saturnio enters his seventh season in 2020 as a member of the Army West Point football coaching staff and returns as the special teams coordinator, a role he served in for the 2016 and 2017 seasons. He heads back as the leader of the special teams unit after spending the previous two seasons (2018-19) as Army's tight ends coach.
Saturnio played an integral role in his two years coaching the tight ends, as the unit assisted the offensive line in having one of the best rushing attacks in the country each year. Since the start of the 2016 season, Army is averaging a nation’s best 327.8 yards per game on the ground. During the 2019 season, Army averaged 297.2 rushing yards per game (3rd nationally), while its 45 rushing scores were tied for second in the nation.
In 2018, Saturnio helped Army capture Commander in Chief’s Trophy titles for the second-straight year and earn a bowl victory for the third year in a row following a 70-14 win over Houston. The Black Knights also finished the year with nine consecutive victories, went undefeated at home for the second year in a row and finished the year ranked 19th in the nation.
