Muoio then transferred to Georgia College & State University in Milledgeville, Ga., leading the Bobcats to a third-place finish in the 2010 NCAA Division II World Series. He moved into coaching in 2010, beginning as a varsity assistant coach for Webster Thomas High School (N.Y.) and giving baseball lessons for the Webster Athletic Association in his hometown of Webster, N.Y.
