Tommy Mangino is entering his 3rd season as the offensive coordinator and quarterback coach for the Lake Travis Cavaliers. He is also responsible for college recruiting activities for the program. Coach Mangino is very familiar with Lake Travis Football as he helped LTHS Alum and QB Todd Reesing lead the Kansas Jayhawks to their most successful seasons in school history.
Most recently, Mangino served as an offensive quality control coach at the University of North Texas. He worked with the quarterbacks and helped coach Mason Fine during his senior campaign.
For three seasons before joining UNT, he was in the same role at Kentucky, working primarily with the wide receivers. Mangino tutored Lynn Bowden, a third-round draft pick in the 2020 NFL draft.
Coach Mangino spent the 2014 and 2015 seasons as the wide receivers coach at Iowa State. In 2014, four different Cyclones, three of which were wide receivers, caught 40 or more passes. The Cyclones were just one of 12 teams in the Football Bowl Subdivision to do so. He also coached and mentored Allen Lazard, current receiver for the Green Bay Packers.
Prior to his time in Ames, Tommy was an offensive graduate assistant on the staff at Arkansas, where his focus was with the Razorbacks’ quarterbacks.
Before heading to Fayetteville, Coach Mangino served on the coaching staff of Hutchinson (Kan.) Community College. He served as offensive coordinator in 2012, as the Blue Dragons tied or broke 15 school records that still stand, including a team record in pass completions and individual records in total offense, passing yards, rushing yards and receptions.
Mangino served as the passing game coordinator for Hutchinson in 2011. That season, the Blue Dragons set a school record with 601 points on the season. In 2010, Mangino was responsible for HCC’s quarterbacks and wide receivers.
Combined across his three seasons at Hutchinson, Mangino’s quarterbacks threw for 7,200 yards and 78 touchdowns. Among the players who Mangino worked with was 2013 first-round NFL draft pick Cordarrelle Patterson, who won a Super Bowl with the New England Patriots in 2018.
Mangino served as an offensive graduate assistant at Kansas for two seasons (2008-09). Mangino primarily worked the quarterbacks and wide receivers, working with Lake Travis Alum QB Todd Reesing to break nine school records and NFL wideout Dez Briscoe earn All-Big 12 honors. He was on-staff when the Jayhawks defeated Minnesota in the 2008 Insight Bowl.
Mangino was a two-sport athlete at Washburn University, playing football and baseball.
Mangino earned his bachelor’s degree in sports management from Washburn in 2008. He completed his master’s degree in health, sport and exercise science at the University of Kansas in 2010.
He is married to the former Danielle Huff, and the couple have four sons, Vincenzo, Dominic, Roman and Augustine.
