Tony Tokarz is in his second season as a senior analyst on offense for Florida State in 2021.
Tokarz came to FSU after serving three seasons on Mike Norvell’s staff at Memphis, including the 2019 season as tight ends coach. That year, Memphis won a school-record 12 games, earned the program’s first outright conference championship since 1969 and played in the Cotton Bowl. Tokarz spent the 2017 and 2018 seasons as a graduate assistant on offense for the Tigers, helping Memphis post a 30-11 record in his three seasons on Norvell’s staff.
Tokarz began his coaching career in 2012 at Anna Maria College coaching wide receivers and also assisting with strength and conditioning and serving as the program’s film coordinator. The next season, he was wide receivers coach at Stonehill College, where he tutored a first-team all-conference receiver as the Skyhawks finished 8-3. In 2014, he was a staff assistant on defense for Memphis, working with the team’s secondary as the Tigers shared the AAC championship and won the Miami Beach Bowl while finishing 10-3 behind the 11th-best scoring defense in the country. He went back to Stonehill as passing game coordinator and recruiting coordinator for the 2016 season before returning to Memphis.
Tokarz was a three-year starting quarterback at Worcester State and was a first-team all-conference performer his senior season. He earned his bachelor’s degree in history from Worcester State in 2012.
