MORRISVILLE, N.Y. – Morrisville State head coach Curt Fitzpatrick announced the addition of Brennan Pelkey and Tyler Loftus to the coaching staff for the 2018 football season.

Pelkey joins the Mustang staff as a defensive line coach after competing for the program for four seasons as a lineman; three on the defensive line before making the move to the offensive line his senior year. The Plattsburgh, New York native appeared in nine games across his career with Morrisville State, collecting three total tackles, while serving a critical role on the team as part of the Leadership Council.

His efforts on the field led Morrisville State to an ECAC North Bowl Title in 2014, and co-New Jersey Athletic Conference (NJAC) title that same season.

Following graduation with his degree in business administration in December, Pelkey joined the staff for the spring season where he served as the offensive line coach for the junior varsity program.

Aside from working with the Mustangs on the field, Pelkey also assisted Fitzpatrick with team and individual football camps, alongside game day responsibilities during the fall season for the JV program.

Pelkey remains an active participant in community service programming, including serving as a PARP reader, WinterFest volunteer and Beekmantown Youth Commission football clinician.

Loftus comes to Morrisville State from Wagner College where he competed for the Division I program for four seasons as a quarterback. Loftus will be responsible for overseeing the quarterbacks this fall for the Mustangs.

Following the conclusion of his senior season, Loftus joined the Wagner staff as a student assistant, working primarily with the quarterbacks, wide receivers and running backs.

In January he served as the running backs coach and special teams' coordinator for the Spirit of America Bowl.

Loftus earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in government and politics from Wagner in May, receiving All-NEC Academic Honor Roll accolades four times.

Pre-season will get underway on Saturday, August 11.

Morrisville State College's curricula are enriched with applied learning and pave the way for opportunity at both the Morrisville and Norwich campuses.
