Brown University assistant coach Mark White has taken a job as a scout for the Winnipeg Jets, according to Providence Journal hockey beat writer Mark Divver.
The Woburn, Mass. native played collegiately at UNH before a brief minor league career. A defenseman in his playing days, White began his coaching career as an assistant at Bentley. Divver reported on Twitter that White's primary duties with the Jets will be scouting NCAA free agents.
Word began to trickle out that White would be departing the Bears over the early last week. Unconfirmed rumors have another ECAC Hockey assistant stepping into White's shoes on Brendan Whittet's staff, reportedly to move closer to his wife's place of work.
