UMass Boston assistant Schneider moves to D-I, takes same position at American International


American International has added Cory Schneider to its coaching staff as an assistant coach.

Schneider replaces Mike Towns, who took the same position at Clarkson in June.

“Cory is a very accomplished player, leader, and coach, but most importantly, an amazing human being that will fit seamlessly into our culture,” AIC head coach Eric Lang said in a statement.

“I’m really excited to be joining the AIC hockey family,” added Schneider. “The staff and players have done an incredible job with the program and it is an honor to be a part of it. I’m looking forward to getting the season started.”

Most recently, Schneider served as an assistant coach at UMass Boston, a role he held from August 2017 through the end of the 2018-19 season.

Schneider previously worked as a volunteer assistant coach with the Wentworth Institute of Technology from September 2015 through August 2017.

Schneider was a four-year member of the hockey team at Ohio State from 2008 to 2012, skating in 112 games for the Buckeyes while earning a bachelor of science in business administration.

Selected by his teammates to serve as team captain in his senior season, he earned three selections to the Big Ten All-Academic Team as well as the 2010–11 Big Ten Sportsmanship Award.

In addition, Schneider played professionally for the ECHL’s Fort Wayne Komets and Cincinnati Cyclones and the Fort Worth Brahmas in the CHL.
