Gozzo joins the coaching staff after serving as field manager for the New Britain Bees in 2019. Under his guidance, the Bees posted a winning record of 72-68 during the regular season, finishing above .500 in each half of the year. The Connecticut native also saw four players have their contracts purchased by Major League Baseball or foreign professional leagues in 2019. In 2018, Gozzo served as pitching coach under then-manager Wally Backman. The pair led the Bees to a 61-65 overall record, including a 33-30 first half mark that saw them finish just two games out of a playoff berth.

The 53-year-old spent six seasons in the Major Leagues where he pitched with the Toronto Blue Jays (1989), Cleveland Indians (1990-91), Minnesota Twins (1992) and New York Mets (1993-94). He combined to make 48 appearances (13 starts) in the big leagues, posting a 7-7 record and 124 innings pitched. Gozzo was originally selected by the Mets in the 13th round of the 1984 amateur draft. He has also held roles as a private instructor, teaching Major League pitchers such as Matt Cain and Drew Pomeranz.
