College Hockey:
Thomaris Tabbed To Coach Potsdam

Directed Elmira For 14 Seasons

— Former Elmira coach Glenn Thomaris has given a verbal commitment to become the new men’s coach at Potsdam.

Athletic director Jim Zalacca said, “We are excited that Glenn has agreed to become our hockey coach. He comes to us highly recommended by all those within the hockey circuit and from a very strong applicant pool. I’m looking forward to working with him as we accelerate our hockey program. His addition adds to an already strong coaching staff and I can’t help but be excited for the potential we have here as a department.”

Thomaris, a native of Potsdam, coached Elmira for 14 years, amassing a record of 271-122-14 with seven NCAA Division III tournament appearances. He was replaced after the 2000-01 season by current coach Tim Ceglarski.

A 1977 graduate of Clarkson, Thomaris began his coaching career as an assistant at Potsdam. He then moved on to Northwood Prep and Clarkson prior to becoming head coach at Elmira.

Potsdam began its search for a new coach Aug. 12 when 14-year head coach Ed Seney took over the program at St. Anselm.
