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.
