College Hockey:
Mercyhurst Tabs Rosso As Assistant Coach

Former Nebraska-Omaha player John Rosso has been named an assistant coach at Mercyhurst.

Rosso was an assistant coach with Sioux Falls of the USHL for the last two seasons. He also has been an assistant in the NAHL and the Western Hockey League.

“We’re really excited to welcome John Rosso to the Laker family,” Mercyhurst coach Rick Gotkin said in a statement. “With his coaching and recruiting background, we know he will make an immediate impact on our players and the program, and continue to attract the kind of student-athletes that we like to recruit here at Mercyhurst.”

Rosso replaces Brian Burke, who left the Lakers to become the head coach of the Victory Honda junior program in Michigan.

Rosso played defense for Nebraska-Omaha from 1997 to 2001.
