Ron Fogarty called on one of his connections from Colgate University. The new head coach of the Princeton University hockey program has hired former Red Raider teammate Brad Dexter to be his first assistant coach.
The pair were teammates at Colgate from 1991-95. After a brief stint in the minors with the South Carolina StingRays of the ECHL, Dexter started his coaching career as an assistant at Clarkson in 2001. Since 2005, the Brockville, Ontario native has been an assistant coach at his alma mater.
Fogarty was named the head coach at Princeton last month following the dismissal of third-year head coach Bob Prier. Fogarty came from Division III Adrian College where he built the Bulldog program from scratch. He went 167-23-10 at the Michigan school. The most losses he ever had a single season was six.
