Fogarty spent two seasons as a graduate assistant at UConn following the end of his playing career. After two years at Fordham he returned to UConn to coach the safeties during the 2013 season. However, he was among the coaches not retained when Bob Diaco was hired at UConn. He spent the 2014 season at Colby to serve as the offensive coordinator.

Fogarty is the latest coach with ties to UConn to land at Fordham led by head coach Joe Moorhead, a former offensive coordinator with the Huskies. Co-Defensive Coordinator and linebackers coach Jon Wholley is also a former UConn player and graduate assistant who spent four seasons as an assistant coach with the Huskies. He returned to Fordham where he was an assistant coach in 2009 after none of the UConn defensive coaches were retained by Diaco.

Special teams administrator Zack Etter is a 2014 UConn graduate who was a student assistant coach on the 2013 UConn squad.
