Mike Field has been named associate head coach for Arizona State, finalizing a staff that also includes head coach Greg Powers and assistant coach Alex Hicks.
Field comes to Arizona State from the Dubuque Fighting Saints of the United States Hockey League, where he served as assistant coach and director of scouting. He has also worked as the assistant coach and recruiting coordinator for American International.
“I couldn’t be more excited to add Mike Field to our staff at ASU,” Powers said in a statement. “We really took our time with this hire because I knew we had to get it right. After six months of talking to Mike and many more great candidates extensively, Mike proved to be the perfect fit for our program. Mike is a tireless recruiter that will come in and round out our staff and bring a skill set that makes our Sun Devil hockey staff unique with collective NHL experience, NCAA experience, and USHL experience.
“I am confident with the resources and attractiveness that comes with everything at Arizona State that Mike’s innate ability to attract and coach elite talent will quickly develop Sun Devil hockey into a national power.”
“After touring campus, meeting with the hockey staff and seeing everything ASU has to offer their student-athletes I knew this was a once in a life time opportunity,” Field added. “I can’t wait to work with the current players and start recruiting the next wave of talent for the Sun Devil Hockey program.”
Originally from Marquette, Mich., Field played collegiately at American International from 2004 to 2008 and was named to the Atlantic Hockey All-Academic Team in each season. He also played professionally with the Fort Wayne Komets of the International Hockey League.
