Brown University made it official on Monday that former Northeastern University assistant coach Jason Smith was being tabbed to the same position on Brendan Whittet's staff.
Smith was recruiting for the Bears at the Junior Bruins Shootout over the weekend. The West Yarmouth, Mass., native was a Salem State graduate who previously had assistant coaching experience at Holy Cross, Babson, and his alma mater, in addition to his time with the Huskies.
Also, Whittet announced the promotion of Jason Guerriero to associate head coach from assistant coach. Guerriero, a former player at Northeastern, is entering his fifth season with the Bears after serving as an assistant at Yale and Holy Cross.
