When he retired in 2012 he had amassed an overall career record of 435-188 as a NJCAA head coach and won three NJCAA Region 19 Championships.
Corsetto was selected as the NJCAA Region 19 Coach of the Year on three occasions (1991, '93, 2005) and was the New Jersey College Basketball Coaches Association Coach of the Year in 1993.
A former basketball and baseball player at Harford Community College (Md.), Corsetto starred on both the basketball court and baseball field at the University of Southern Mississippi and was inducted into the USM Athletics Hall of Fame in 1997. He is one of just two athletes to be inducted for two sports - the other was Ray Guy. He was also a member of the inaugural class of the Harford CC Athletics Hall of Fame in 1992.
