Eric Graham Named Men’s Ice Hockey Head Coach


With experience as an NCAA Division III student-athlete and coach, Eric Graham is a natural fit for Johnson & Wales University. He was named Athletics’ next men's ice hockey coach as announced by Associate Dean of Students and Executive Director of Athletics Mel Graf on June 10.

Graham comes to JWU from Bowdoin College where he served as an assistant coach for the last three seasons. On the ice, he was in charge of the Polar Bears' defense while off ice duties included video analysis, recruiting, alumni relations and community service.

"I am humbled and honored to be named the next men's ice hockey coach at Johnson & Wales University," Graham said. "I would like to thank Mel Graf, John LaRose, David Kulik and the entire search committee for this opportunity. My family and I are excited to join the Providence and Johnson & Wales communities, and I'm looking forward to getting started with the Wildcats."
