Women’s Ice Hockey Hires New Assistant Coach

p20-haneyGreg Haney of Marcellus, N.Y., joined the SUNY Oswego women’s ice hockey team as its full-time assistant coach.

Before coming to Oswego, he spent a year at University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point when the Pointers made a run to the national championship game before falling to Trinity College. While at Stevens Point, Haney helped two student-athletes to All-America selections and five to All-Conference accolades, including Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Player of the Year.

Prior to assisting the Pointers, Haney spent two seasons at Western New England University as an assistant coach and the recruiting coordinator. Haney developed a strength and conditioning program for the Golden Bears while also heading the recruiting and scouting efforts. Other coaching experience includes a year as an assistant at the National Sports Academy in Lake Placid and a year as a student assistant at his alma mater, SUNY Cortland.

In his playing days as a forward for the Red Dragons, Haney appeared in 42 games, collecting 22 points on six goals and 16 assists before suffering a career-ending injury after his junior year. This opened the door to the coaching realm as he began his journey behind the bench as a student assistant, aiding with video breakdown and on-campus recruiting.

Haney spent a year at Onondaga Community College before heading to Cortland, with the Lazers posting a perfect 15-0 season on their way to the 2007 NJCAA National Championship.

During his high school years, Haney played for Solvay where he was a two-time First Team All-New York State selection, including New York State Player of the Year in 2005. Haney holds a B.A. in communications and is currently pursuing an M.A. in education.
