Colgate announced Monday the addition of Juliano Pagliero as a new assistant coach.
Pagliero replaces Jason Lefevre, who left his position this past January.
Pagliero will work primarily with the Raiders goaltenders and defensemen and will also oversee the program’s recruiting efforts while assisting in the day-to-day operations of the team.
“We are excited to welcome Juliano Pagliero and his wife, Kristin, to the Colgate hockey program,” Colgate coach Don Vaughan said in a statement. “Juliano was chosen from a strong applicant pool and comes highly recommended. He has an excellent reputation as a tireless recruiter and has a clear understanding of what it takes to succeed both on the ice and in the classroom. As a former Division I goalie, he has a wealth of knowledge of that position, which will serve him and our hockey program well moving forward.”
“I am very excited and honored to be joining the Colgate men’s hockey staff,” added Pagliero. “I look forward to working with such a respected coach like Coach Vaughan, as well as [assistant coach Mike] Harder and the players as we try to build on the success that the program has enjoyed in recent years. I can’t wait to join the staff and start building towards the future.”
Pagliero comes to Colgate after two seasons as an assistant coach at Holy Cross and from 2011-13, was an assistant coach at Utica. He played from 2006 to 2010 at Niagara and was named the CHA Player of the Year his senior season with the Purple Eagles.
