Jon Coleman begins his third season, and first as Babson’s full-time assistant coach in 2017.
A four-year standout and two-time All-American selection at Boston University from 1993-97, Coleman tallied 114 points in 118 contests. The Terriers won 121 games, made four consecutive Division I Frozen Four appearances, and captured the program's fourth national title in 1995.
Coleman, who was selected by the Detroit Red Wings with the 48th pick of the 1993 National Hockey League (NHL) Entry Draft, completed a 13-year professional career in 2010. He played five seasons in the American Hockey League (AHL) between 1997-04 and spent eight seasons playing in Europe.
Coleman, who also has coaching experience at the youth and high school levels, has helped the Green and White post an overall record of 34-15-6 over his first two seasons with the program. Additionally, his father Dave served as the head men's ice hockey coach at Babson from 1966-68.
