He serves as a liaison for the football office to a number of administrative offices in the athletic department and on campus.
Carparelli served as head freshman basketball coach at Cheshire High School in Cheshire, Conn., for four seasons from 1996 through 2000 -- working under his father, Nick Carparelli, Sr., who was the Cheshire head basketball coach.
For three seasons from 1992-95, he worked as the Syracuse assistant director of football operations, helping the Orangmen to the '92 Fiesta Bowl title.
Born March 19, 1968 in New Haven, Conn., he's a 1990 graduate of Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) where he earned a degree in mechanical engineering in 1990. He played basketball for four seasons for the Engineers, captaining the squad as a senior. He also played golf for three seasons and participated with the baseball squad his senior year.

A 1986 graduate of Cheshire High School, he played basketball for four seasons for his father, captaining the squad as a senior, and also played golf for four years, also captaining that team as a senior.

He was married June 3, 2000, to the former Renee LaRose.
