Bowling Green adds Phillips to staff as director of hockey operations


Bowling Green has named Nathan Phillips the team’s director of hockey operations.

“We are thrilled to add Nathan to our staff,” said BGSU coach Ty Eigner in a statement. “He is incredibly intelligent and has tremendous passion for both academics and hockey. His positive impact on our program will be felt on a daily basis.”

Phillips comes to Bowling Green following three seasons as the associate head coach of the Culver Military Academy U16 AAA team. He also served as goaltending coach for the boys and girls programs.

“I am incredibly excited to be joining Bowling Green State University and the Falcon hockey family,” said Phillips. “It is quite an honor to be able to work alongside Ty Eigner, Curtis Carr and Maco Balkovec, who are all genuine people and have great hockey minds. The opportunity to have an impact on the strong culture that Ty has helped build was one that I jumped on immediately.”

Prior to Culver, Phillips was a goalie at Michigan State, seeing action in one game during the 2015-16 season.
