Presutti worked as a support staff member in multiple national basketball trials beginning in 2007 and in 2009 he worked at the USA Basketball World University Games and the USA Basketball U19 Trials. He also served time as the video coordinator for the Canadian Men[apos]s National Team at the FIBA Americas Championship in 2009.

He then returned to Syracuse as a graduate men's basketball manager in 2009-10. His duties at Syracuse included working closely with the coaching staff on opponent scouting reports, opponent film breakdown and assisting with practice sessions.

Presutti attended Genesee Valley High School, where he played soccer, basketball and baseball as a prep. He won several awards in his basketball playing career, being named the 2004 Great Eight League Player of the Year, the 2004 Big 30 Player of the Year, was a third-team all-state selection and the 2004 Section V Most Valuable Player. His high school was the 2002, 2003 and 2004 Section V basketball champions and the soccer and baseball teams were Section V champions in 2003.
