HARTFORD, Conn. — Andrew McPhee was named as the new women’s head coach at Trinity today.
McPhee has been an assistant coach for the team for the last two seasons and is also an assistant football coach in charge of wide receivers.
“McPhee [brings] quality coaching experience both at Trinity and traditional women’s ice hockey power Middlebury to our head coaching position,” said athletic director Richard Hazelton. “We are ecstatic to have a young coach of his ability coaching two sports.”
McPhee ascends to the position formerly held by Katie Busniuk, who coached the Bantams to eighth place in their first season in the NESCAC. Trinity was 4-12 in league play, 6-13-1 overall. Busniuk left Trinity to return to her native Canada.
Prior to Trinity, McPhee served as assistant coach in three sports at NESCAC rival Middlebury — football, baseball, and women’s ice hockey. He helped the Panthers capture the American Women’s Collegiate Hockey Association Division III National Championship in 2000 along with two ECAC Division III titles in 1999 and 2000.
McPhee is a 1998 graduate of Middlebury, where he played football and baseball.
