Bentley University has hired former Boston University star Jon Coleman to be an assistant coach on Ryan Soderquist’s staff.
The Boston, Mass., native played for the Terriers from 1993-1997, then embarked on a pro career in the Detroit Red Wings' organization and overseas.
Coleman replaces Michael Findorff, who left Bentley earlier this offseason to pursue a career outside of hockey.
Coleman had been one of Jamie Rice’s assistants at Babson for the past three seasons. Rice has a solid recent track record of pushing his assistant coaches toward Division 1 or NHL gigs. His coaching tree includes Jason Smith, now an assistant coach for Northeastern, and Brendan Fleming, entering his second season as an amateur scout for the Detroit Red Wings.
