Providence College Assistant Coach Matt Francis recently concluded his third season on the sidelines for the Friars. Francis is a nine-year veteran assistant coach whose past coaching roles were at Binghampton and at his alma-mater Marist. As a player, Francis helped lead the Red Foxes to the MAAC Semifinals and was one of the top faceoff specialists in the country during his junior and senior seasons. How long have you been coaching for? I have been a Division 1 Assistant Coach for nine seasons and almost ten years. What was your path into coaching and where else have you coached?
