Tony Caputo is the assistant athletic director at Southern Virginia University.
Caputo came to Southern Virginia in 1998 as director of continuing education. He later served as assistant dean of admissions and acting director of admissions before becoming dean of admissions and financial aid in 1999—a position he held until 2008. During Caputo’s time as dean of admissions, Southern Virginia’s student population more than tripled in size.
Before coming to Southern Virginia, Caputo taught for
14 years—primarily American history and physical
education—in three different Utah school districts. During
that time, Caputo successfully coached several varsity sports,
helping three different men’s basketball teams reach the
state championship game.
Caputo graduated in 1984 from then Weber State College with a B.A. in history and was recognized as the outstanding physical education minor that year. In 1998 he received a master’s degree in education from Southern Utah University.
He served a fulltime mission for The Church of Jesus
Christ of Latter-day Saints in Scotland.
Caputo resides in Buena Vista with his wife Tammy. They have four children.
