Skidmore turns to alum Hutchison to take over coaching duties

Rob Hutchison is returning to his alma mater.

Hutchison has been named the head coach at Skidmore, where he was inducted into the school’s athletics hall of fame in 2014.

He replaces Neil Sinclair, who left Skidmore to take over at Middlebury.

Hutchison, a standout in hockey and baseball who graduated in 2007, has been the varsity boys hockey head coach at Trinity-Pawling School for the last six seasons.

“I can’t be more excited for the opportunity to return to Skidmore College,” Hutchison said in a statement. “I have the utmost respect for Gail Cummings-Danson and the Skidmore athletic department and look forward to joining the family. The potential and positive energy around the hockey program is evident and I am eager to work with a motivated group of young men.”

Hutchison was a two-year captain and two-year MVP for the Thoroughbreds. He ranks 12th on the program’s all-time scoring list with 97 points.
