Following day #3 of Bearcats training camp, Tom Gelehrter checks-in with Special Team Coordinator & Tight Ends Coach Marc Nudelberg
Marc Nudelberg is in his first season as the tight ends coach and special teams coordinator on the University of Cincinnati football staff and his second year in Clifton. He spent the 2013 season as an offensive graduate assistant before being promoted into his current role in January 2014.
Nudelberg worked directly with Offensive Coordinator Eddie Gran and the running backs, helping coach First-Team All-American Athletic Conference selection Ralph David Abernathy IV. Nudelberg was part of a staff that produced the most prolific offensive unit in Cincinnati history. The Bearcats set the school record with 6,137 yards of total offense and led the American Athletic Conference averaging 472.1 yards per game.
Nudelberg came to Cincinnati after eight seasons at Florida State, including three as the quality control assistant for the offensive and special teams units. During the time at his alma mater, Nudelberg directly worked with Gran, current FSU head coach Jimbo Fisher and legendary coach Bobby Bowden.
From 2010-13, Nudelberg was the offensive and special teams quality control coach, working directly with the specialists and running backs as well as assisting with the scout special teams and drills. Outside of practice, Nudelberg was responsible for special teams film breakdown and scouting reports. He worked with a pair of NFL specialists, punter Shawn Powell and kicker Dustin Hopkins, and the Seminoles were the nation's top-ranked special teams unit in 2011.
From 2009-10, he worked with the running backs and directly with Bowden on gameday, coordinating communication between the head coach and the offensive staff. He was also responsible for game week film, practice breakdowns, meeting cut ups and front and blitz drawings.
He was a student equipment manager and assistant from 2005-09, working with the quarterbacks and Fisher. He was responsible for producing the daily offensive practice script, drawing play cards, maintenance of equipment for quarterbacks and wide receivers, setting up of individual QB drills and post-practice data entry.
Nudelberg earned his bachelor's degree in economics from Florida State in 2009. He is working towards a master's in criminal justice from UC.
