Patrick Hatch is in his fourth season at Stony Brook. After working with the defensive line for two seasons, Hatch tutored Miguel Maysonet and Brock Jackolski, who combined to rush for more than 3,000 yards. Jackolski and Maysonet each were named All-Big South first team, and were honored with All-America honors.
Chris Fenelon and Matt Faiella helped block for Jackolski and Maysonet as the Seawolves rushed for the most yards in a season in school history.
Hatch had been with the staff at the Worcester Polytechnic Institute for three seasons where he worked with both the offensive and defensive lines. He also worked as the academic liaison and co-video coordinator for the Engineers. During his time at WPI the Engineers increased their win total each season, with their 7-3 record in 2008 representing the highest number of victories for the squad in 16 years.
Hatch is a 2006 graduate of Union College in Schenectady, New York where he was a four-year starter on the offensive line and a three-time all-Liberty League selection. In 2005, the Dutchmen were undefeated in the regular season en route to capturing the Liberty League championship and reached the second round of the NCAA Division III championships. Hatch played his high school ball at Maloney High School in Meriden, Connecticut.
