Andrew Lieberman, a 2013 Wesleyan graduate, returns to the Cardinals’ coaching staff for a second season in 2017 as the wide receivers coach. He played quarterback at Wesleyan for two years and eventually coached the quarterbacks as a student assistant during his junior and senior years. He served a vital role in the development of 2014 NESCAC Player of the Year, Jesse Warren ’15, before graduating with a degree in Sociology.
Last season, Lieberman coached junior wide receiver Mike Breuler to First Team All-NESCAC honors as he finished third in the conference in receiving touchdowns (7), sixth in receiving yards (512) and seventh in receiving yards per game (64.0).
Prior to his return to Middletown, Conn., Lieberman spent the 2014 and 2015 seasons coaching at Rutgers University as an offensive graduate assistant. In 2014, he was part of the coaching staff that helped transition Rutgers into the Big Ten Conference, earned the school’s first-ever Big Ten victory, and an eventual Bowl championship win over North Carolina in the Quick Lane Bowl.
He was promoted to assistant wide receivers coach before the 2015 season, allowing him to coach on the field full time, where he worked closely with former All-Big Ten receiver, Leonte Carroo. Drafted in the third round of the NFL Draft by the Miami Dolphins, Carroo left Rutgers as the program’s all-time leader in career receiving touchdowns, and racked up over 1,000 yards and 10 touchdowns in each of Lieberman’s two seasons with him.
Before arriving at Rutgers, he spent one season as an offensive graduate assistant and video coordinator at the University at Albany where he worked under legendary coach Bob Ford.
Lieberman was born in New York City and has family throughout the Tri-State area. He is responsible for recruiting New Jersey, California and the rest of the West Coast.
