But rather than take on the task of turning the program around alone, Crowley built an impressive coaching staff that includes offensive coordinator Tim Speakman, the former head coach at Palmetto Ridge, and Mike DiGrigoli, the former defensive coordinator at Gulf Coast.

"He's a very prideful kid," said Mike DiGrigoli, Gulf Coast's head wrestling coach and an assistant football coach.
But DiGrigoli could tell he wouldn't be that size for very long.
"I don't want to sound like a fortune teller, but I could tell he'd grow," DiGrigoli said.

NAPLES - When players at Golden Gate High School took to the practice field Monday afternoon for the start of spring practice, it marked a new era in Titans football.
Trotting onto the turf alongside his players, wearing a floppy, wide-brimmed hat to shield his shaved head from the sun, was first- year head coach Mike DiGrigoli. With the first tweets of his whistle, the 38-year-old became the third coach since Golden Gate opened in 2004.
Monday was his first practice as the boss, but DiGrigoli began putting his stamp on the Titans shortly after taking over in early February when Steve Crowley resigned.
"We're trying to change the culture around here as far as doing the right thing," DiGrigoli said. "Not just on the field but off the field. We're trying to get our priorities straight here. That's a big drive."
During offseason workouts, DiGrigoli stressed unity and accountability to his players. He didn't just preach the values, but also used actions to impress them upon the Titans.
Much of the winter was spent doing charity work. Golden Gate players picked vegetables at a Matt's Farm, a nonprofit organization in North Naples, and delivered the good to St. Matthew's House homeless shelter on Good Friday. The Titans also put on children's clinics with K6 Youth Sports in town.
DiGrigoli also got his team involved in fundraising.
DiGrigoli said Sylverian already is getting looks from a handful of Bowl Championship Series colleges.
DiGrigoli said about 65 players were on the practice field Monday. The Titans will have 19 more practices before hosting defending regional champion South Fort Myers in the spring game May 27.
The new Golden Gate coach, who spent 10 seasons as an assistant at Gulf Coast before serving as the Titans' defensive coordinator the past two seasons, knows improvement can be a slow process. This month DiGrigoli plans to hammer home fundamentals to his players to get them ready for the summer.
DiGrigoli, who still will call the defense, spent nearly half of Monday's two-hour practice working on basic tackling techniques with his defenders. He said maintaining basic fundamentals will be key if the Titans want to get that elusive sixth victory in the fall.
"We don't really talk about wins and losses," DiGrigoli.
