Intern Moved Up to Coaching Staff


NEW HAVEN, Conn. - Matt Cerins, who served as an offensive intern for Yale's 2017 Ivy League Championship team, has been named the Bulldogs' tight ends coach.

Cerins, who took the job when Chandler Henley '06 left for the NFL, worked primarily last fall with Yale's offensive linemen, while helping the Elis establish numerous records. The former first-team All-Northeast-10, All-ECAC and All-Worcester offensive lineman at Assumption College earned his undergraduate degree in 2008.

Cerins began his coaching career at Glastonbury (Conn.) High School before getting his first collegiate position at Coastal Carolina as an intern in 2015. He served as the defensive line coach at Bentley University in 2016 before coming to New Haven.

Cerins, a Manchester, Conn., native, and his fiancé, Monika Pomykala, are planning to marry in the summer of 2019.
