New England College will today announce the hiring of Scott Borek as head coach, according to sources.
Borek, who was the head coach at Lake Superior State until being fired last March, replaces Mark Ostapina, who recently resigned to take over the reins at Milwaukee School of Engineering.
Borek was 13-23 last season at Lake Superior, which failed to make the CCHA playoffs for the first time in 19 years. He was 76-97-17 in five seasons, and was named CCHA coach of the year in 1999-2000.
Ostapina led New England College to the ECAC East title last season, and its first NCAA berth in 15 years.
The NEC job is a return to the Division III ranks for Borek, who coached at
Colby before accepting the LSSU job. Before that, the former Dartmouth player
held assistant positions at Brown and Providence.
