Caputi is now in his fifth season at his alma mater as the team’s offensive coordinator in 2019-20.
A 1981 graduate of Middlebury College, Caputi earned his undergraduate degree in American history. On the gridiron, he was the starting quarterback for a Panther squad that finished the 1980 season with a 6-1-1 record. In 1994, Caputi earned his master’s degree in education from North Adams State College in Massachusetts.
Caputi stepped down as the head coach at Bowdoin in the fall of 2014 following 15 seasons at the helm. In his time in Brunswick, he accumulated the fourth-most wins of any coach in program history (35) and led the Polar Bears to four CBB (Colby-Bates-Bowdoin) championships. Caputi directed a Bowdoin offense that rewrote the school record books, setting single-season and single-game records in passing yards, touchdowns and total offense during certain points of his tenure.
Caputi joined the Bowdoin staff after serving as the offensive coordinator for Williams College. In his 13 years at Williams, the Ephs compiled an 88-13-3 record with four undefeated seasons. Before joining Williams, Caputi served as both the quarterback and secondary coach for Tufts University from 1985 to 1986. Prior to that, he spent a pair of years coaching the offensive backfield and receivers at Amherst.
Caputi is married to Elizabeth Connolly Caputi, and they have four children: Mac (Bowdoin ’15), Maggie (Middlebury ’16), Lydia (Bowdoin ’18) and Claire (Colby ’19).
