Mark Carberry Returns to Villanova as Assistant T&F Coach

Marcus O'Sullivan has filled the assistant coach vacancy that was created when Adrian Blincoe left Villanova in August 2012 to return to his native New Zealand.  Mark Carberry, a Villanova track and cross country team member from 2000-2004, has left his position at NCAA Division 1 St. Mary's College in Walnut, California, where since 2010 he has served as associate head coach of cross country and track, to return to his alma mater.

Carberry was 3x All-Big East at Villanova
Prior to his arrival at St. Mary's College, Carberry from 2008-2010 was the top cross country and track assistant coach at Division III Tufts University in Medford, Massachusetts. At Tufts, Carberry was the primary coach for 8 NCAA Division III All Americans and 15 NCAA Division III national qualifiers.  He was also co-director of recruiting and development for the middle and long-distance athletes. He will assume similar duties at Villanova in replacing Adrian Blincoe.

Carberry came to Villanova in 2000 from Xavier high school in Middletown, Connecticut and developed into a three-time All Big East performer.  In 2003 and 2004 he was part of the Wildcats' all conference 4x800 meter squad, and he earned individual all-conference honors in the 1000 meters in 2004. He was a three-year letterman in cross country.

After graduating with a degree in political science from Villanova in 2004, Carberry has earned two Master's degrees: from Florida State University (2008) in political science, and from Tufts University (2010) in physical education and coaching development.  Carberry has earned his USATF Level 1 certification.
