Camodeca begins his third season as the outdoor men’s and women’s track and field head coach and second as the indoor men’s track and field head coach. He previously spent six years as the head track and field coach at York (Pa.) from 2007-13 and was a two-time CAC Coach of the Year selection.

Last season, Camodeca mentored the program’s first All-American in Devonte Williams who placed at the NCAA Outdoor Championships. Williams finished seventh at the NCAA Championships after being named the MAC Athlete of the Year.

During the 2013-2014 season, Williams was named Middle Atlantic Conference Rookie of the Year in both indoor and outdoor. Meanwhile, the women placed 18th in the 4x100 relay at the 2015 ECAC Outdoor Championships.

Over the last two years, the men broke 18 school records (12 indoor and 6 outdoor) while the women broke 28 (4 indoor and 24 outdoor).

Camodeca comes to Stevenson from Division I Loyola where he spent the 2013-14 indoor season as an assistant coach. While there, he helped recruit and develop the Greyhounds' sprinters, hurdlers, jumpers and throwers who set new indoor records in the weight throw, 200, 300, 500 and 4x400-meter relay.

In six years at York (Pa.), Camodeca spent all six as the head men's track and field coach and three as head coach of the women. During that time, he coached 50 all-conference selections in indoor and outdoor, including five CAC Athlete of the Year selections and five CAC Rookie of the Year honorees. Six of his athletes have qualified for nationals while three have earned All-America status. In addition, his male athletes held a total of 35 school records while the women were responsible for 27.

In the classroom, Camodeca's teams had above a 3.0 grade point average each year.

In 2011, Camodeca led the men's outdoor team to its first CAC championship since 1992. Also that year, he led the women's program to a second-place finish at the conference meet, the team's highest-ever finish. As a result, he received the second of back-to-back CAC Coach of the Year honors.

From 2010-12, Camodeca spent three seasons as the head cross country coach at York (Pa.) as well where he led the men to back-to-back CAC championships, including the program's first-ever title in 2011. Like track and field, he was also a two-time CAC Coach of the Year while guiding three CAC Athlete of the Year selections and three Rookie of the Year honorees. He coached three individual champions, had two NCAA qualifiers and one All-American.

In 2012, Camodeca led the Spartans' men's cross country team to a ranking of seventh in the NCAA Mid-East Region.

A 2006 graduate of Goucher, Camodeca served his alma mater as an assistant in both cross country and track and field. Under his assistance, the Gophers set four school records in track, sent one women's cross country runner to nationals and had one All-CAC Second Team selection. He also received his Level 1 Certification from the United States Track and Field Association.

As a student-athlete at Goucher, Camodeca earned All-CAC First Team honors as part of the 400-meter relay team which held the school record before a new mark was established under his tutelage in 2007. He was also a member of the 4x200 relay and the medley relay teams that set the school records indoors and outdoors, respectively.

Individually, Camodeca scored in 18 out of the 21 CAC championship events he competed in while also serving as a team captain, member of the men's soccer team and vice president of the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee.

Camodeca and his wife Lindsay reside in Baltimore.
