Duggan, Maurice added to Ohio State women’s coaching staff

Ohio State announced the hiring of Carson Duggan and Keith Maurice as assistant coaches for the women’s team.

Duggan comes to the Buckeyes after spending the last two seasons as head women’s coach at Trinity, while Maurice has been an assistant coach at Norwich for the past 10 seasons.

“Carson is a great addition to our program here at Ohio State,” OSU head coach Nate Handrahan said in a statement. “She is a terrific coach who gets the most out of her players. She has been on a very steep incline in the coaching world and is considered one of our rising stars. Her experiences through her playing days, having been to four straight NCAA tournaments, and as a coach will be very beneficial in guiding our players in the direction we want to head.

“Keith has a track record of success both on the recruiting trail and on the ice. The level of championship experience he brings will be extremely valuable to our culture here. He is a very diligent, thorough coach who will serve our program well. We are very fortunate that Keith and his family decided to be Buckeyes.”

Duggan played at St. Lawrence from 2005-09 and Maurice skated at Norwich from 1998-2002.

The two new coaches replace Candice Moxley, who accepted the head coaching position at Buffalo State, and Chris MacKenzie, who is now the head coach at Connecticut.
