Assistant coach Jason Guerriero has left Yale to take the same position at Brown. He replaces Mark White, who left the Bears program to take a scouting job with the NHL's Winnipeg Jets.
The former Northeastern star forward made the seemingly lateral move to be closer to his family. A native of Manorville, NY, Guerriero spent the past two seasons on Keith Allain's staff in New Haven after working for Paul Pearl at Holy Cross for two seasons.
Guerriero joins Brendan Whittet's staff alongside fellow assistant coach Mike Levine. The Bears finished the 2014-15 season with a disappointing 8-20-3 record, but there is optimism for this season as some of the young forwards will be a year older and the defense will have more experience as well.
Brown opens the 2015-16 season with an October 31 tilt against Holy Cross at Meehan Auditorium.
