The Oswego State Athletic Department announced today that Mark Digby has accepted the position of assistant men’s ice hockey coach. Digby, an assistant coach at Brockport for the previous four seasons, fills the position vacated by Dan Ford, who resigned in order to pursue personal business ventures.

While at Brockport, Digby worked directly with Golden Eagle defensive and power-play units that saw statistical improvements and developed in-season and summer strength and conditioning programs. The G. Ray Bodley High School (Fulton, N.Y.) graduate aided the development of practice plans through the analysis of game and practice video footage. He created successful marketing strategies to attract fans to Brockport ice hockey games. Digby has also served as the advertising coordinator for the Brockport Athletic Department since 2008.

During the off-season, Digby has worked as an instructor at the Hamilton College Hockey School for three summers and the Maksymum Hockey School in Rochester for five summers.

Digby received his Bachelor of Science degree in Physical Education from The College at Brockport in May 2005 and earned his Master of Science degree in Recreation and Leisure Studies four years later.
