    Following his career at WVU, Mazzulla joined Glenville State in September 2011 as an associate, then joined the Jarred Calhoun staff at Fairmont State from 2013-2016. He then worked as an assistant coach with the NBA G League’s Maine Red Claws before taking over as head coach at Fairmont State in 2017. After the 2019 season, he joined Brad Stevens’ Boston staff. He was most recently a candidate for the head coaching job when Stevens stepped down to take over as GM in early June, but stayed on as an assistant under Ime Udoka.
