Offensive Graduate Assistant

Former Cavalier standout Kase Luzar is in his first season as the Cavaliers offensive graduate assistant coach. Last fall he worked as a graduate assistant for video operations.

A two-year starter at fullback for UVa, Luzar also played on several special teams units. Following back-to-back wins in the Continental Tire Bowl to end his collegiate career, Luzar entered the professional ranks. He played the last month of the Arena Football League season with the Philadelphia Soul.

Then Luzar joined the coaching ranks after moving to Austin, Texas. He coached at St. Andrew's Episcopal School and worked with their off-season strength and conditioning program.

Luzar received his bachelor's degree in Spanish in May of 2003. A four-time ACC Honor Roll recipient, he served as a trustee for the Class of 2003, a very prestigious position at Virginia. He earned a master's degree in social foundations from the Curry School of Education in 2004.

He is married to the former Mary Elizabeth Watson of Austin, Texas. His older brother, Chris, is also a former Cavalier standout and currently plays in the NFL for the New York Giants.
