Cornell hockey searching for new assistant coach

Matt Dewkett

Cornell University assistant coach Topher Scott has resigned his position with the hockey program, according to multiple sources. His name has been removed from the school's athletic website.

Scott, a 2008 graduate of Cornell, played four seasons for the Big Red, including serving as the team's captain during his senior season in 2007-08. He recorded 25 goals and 82 assists in 137 career games.

After a brief minor league career in the ECHL and CHL, Scott started his coaching career as an assistant at Miami for the 2010-11 season. He's been an assistant at his alma mater since the 2011-12 season. Scott is reportedly leaving the Big Red program to pursue a career outside of hockey.

Cornell head coach Mike Schafer is actively seeking a replacement and has been accepting applications for the vacant position on the staff. Assistant Ben Syer, who has been a Big Red assistant since 2011, is still on the staff.
