Robert Morris adds coaching vet as volunteer assistant

Robert Morris has announced the hiring of Josh Brown as a volunteer assistant coach with the Colonials’ men’s program.

Brown has nearly a decade of coaching experience, most recently as an assistant coach with Northern Arizona’s ACHA Division II team.

“We are very excited to add Josh to our staff,” said RMU head coach Derek Schooley in a statement. “He is very enthusiastic and comes to us with some excellent references. Josh will be a real asset to our program and we look forward to him helping our team in many different ways.”

Prior to joining the Robert Morris staff, Brown spent four years as an assistant coach and head of recruiting at Northern Arizona, where he also played and graduated from in 2008. Brown was a two-year captain for NAU and earned ACHA Division III First Team All-West honors in 2006-2007.

Brown previously served as an instructor at Skating Dynamics in Marquette, Mich., from 2002-2008 and served in a similar capacity with the Flagstaff (Ariz.) Youth Hockey Association from 2007-2011.
