Former Rochester Institute of Technology goaltender Jared DeMichiel has joined the RIT women’s hockey staff as a new assistant coach.
“Jared is a great addition to our program and coaching staff,” said RIT head coach Scott McDonald in a news release. “I was (an assistant coach) on the men’s staff when Jared was recruited to RIT, and have remained good friends with him over the years. Jared was a tireless worker and a great character guy to have in the locker room as a player and I know this will translate to him becoming a great coach.”
DeMichiel, who graduated from RIT in 2010, played goal for the Tigers from 2006-10, and is the school’s all-time leader with 41 wins and seven shutouts at the Division I level. He played in 66 career games, finishing 41-19-2 with a 2.48 goals against average and a .909 save percentage.
