The CWU football program has officially added Spencer Capitani and Grant Torgerson to their 2018 coaching staff.

Capitani is joining the Wildcats as an assistant coach on the defensive end after spending two seasons as the cornerbacks coach at Minnesota State.

Torgerson is joining the Wildcats after spending the past seven seasons with Southern Oregon, where he was a player for five seasons and an assistant coach for two seasons.  

“Both of these guys come from really strong programs,” said head coach Ian Shoemaker. We’re “looking forward to them bringing some leadership and some commitment to the program.”

Both Capitani and Torgerson have had connections with CWU’s coaching staff over the years and Shoemaker believes they are a great fit for the Ellensburg community, CWU and the football program.

Shoemaker said that being able to have first hand knowledge of the two coaches from the coaching staff helped influence the decision to bring them onto the program.
