Prior to joining Utah State's coaching staff, Przestrzelski spent the 2012 season as an intern with the Florida International football staff. As the special teams quality control assistant, Przestrzelski's scouting and analysis of opponents' special teams units and production of the weekly scouting reports helped move FIU from a special teams rank of eighth in 2011 to first overall in the Sun Belt Conference in 2012.

In addition, he also had a punting tryout with the Miami Dolphins of the National Football League prior to the 2011 season.
Przestrzelski began his coaching career as the special teams coordinator at Charles D. Owen High School in Black Mountain, N.C. where, under his guidance, the junior varsity and varsity special teams units had their most productive season since his graduation. Przestrzelski has also taught special teams as a counselor with Ray Guy's ProKicker® camps.
Przestrzelski spent four years at East Carolina as a punter, where he helped the Pirates to back-to-back Conference USA Championships in 2008 and 2009 as well as four-straight bowl appearances, including a 41-38 victory against Boise State in the 2007 Sheraton Hawai'i Bowl.
