Kruczek began his coaching career first as the quarterbacks coach for Bobby Bowden at Florida State from 1982-83 and then as an assistant with the University of Central Florida Golden Knights. He worked his way up the coaching ladder until he was named UCF's head coach in 1998. Kruczek's run as coach benefitted from the fact that he inherited future NFL Pro Bowl quarterback Daunte Culpepper as a recruit from the previous regime. 1998 (MCMXCVIII) was a common year starting on Thursday of the Gregorian calendar, and was designated the International Year of the Ocean. ...

Kruczek's Golden Knights squad joined the Mid-American Conference as a football-only member starting in the 2002 season, with many pundits expecting the team to win the MAC's Eastern Division championship. After a successful debut season in 2002 in which Kruczek's team finished 7-5 and earned second place in the MAC East, UCF struggled mightily in 2003, going 3-9. Starting quarterback Ryan Schneider was dismissed from the team for academic violations and UCF struggled to a 3-7 record before Kruczek was dismissed with two games remaining in the season. After a humiliating loss to MAC bottom dweller Eastern Michigan, Kruczek was fired despite having signed a three-year contract extension at the start of the season. Kruczek was replaced by George O'Leary for the 2004 season, and UCF went 0-11 that year with much of the blame falling on Kruczek's poor recruiting and lax disciplinary standards.
