Joe Battaglia is in his first season as an offensive analyst at Georgia Tech. He came to Georgia Tech in 2019 after two seasons under head coach Geoff Collins at Temple.
Battaglia moved into a full-time analyst role on The Flats after serving as an offensive graduate assistant under Collins at Temple. He has also worked under Georgia Tech offensive coordinator Dave Patenaude for the past eight seasons, first as an undergraduate assistant at Coastal Carolina (2011-14), then as an analyst at CCU (2015-16) and a G.A. at Temple (2017-18).
During Battaglia’s time at Temple, the Owls posted two of the three highest single-season passing totals in school history and scored the most points in school history in 2018. While he was at CCU, the Chanticleers set nearly every offensive record in school history, including single-season scoring, total offense, rushing yards and passing yards.
“Joe did a tremendous job for us as a graduate assistant at Temple,” Collins said. “He knows the offense inside and out after having been with Coach Patenaude at Coastal Carolina and then in the record-setting years at Temple. I’m really excited that Joe has joined our staff here in Atlanta.”
A Syracuse, N.Y. native, Battaglia played football as a freshman at Hartwick (N.Y.) college in 2010 before sustaining an injury and transferring to Coastal Carolina. He graduated from CCU in 2014 with a bachelor’s degree in business administration.
