Buffalo State named Jennifer Wilson the fourth head coach in its women's hockey program history.
Wilson takes over a program which won a program-best 35 games the last two seasons (35-16-2) and made four-consecutive postseason appearances, including earning its first-ever postseason victory last season. She takes over for Candice Moxley, who returned to coach in Canada.
Wilson spent two seasons as the head coach for Robert Morris University in Chicago, Ill., leading the team to the CCWHA conference semifinals for the first time in four years.
Prior to her time in Chicago, Wilson served as an assistant coach at NCAA Division III St. Michael’s in Vermont for two seasons, helping the Knights to their first postseason appearance in the program’s 12-year history.
While playing, she was part of the 2005-06 Manhattanville College NCAA Division III ECAC-East Championship team that went 23-4-1.
Buffalo State will open the 2017-18 season, its first season in the newly-formed Northeast Women’s Hockey League (NEWHL) with fellow SUNY institutions Plattsburgh, Potsdam, Oswego and Cortland, with a pair of non-conference games at Morrisville State on Oct. 27 and 28.
