Minnesota women’s hockey assistant coach Bobrowski named a new head coach in Elmira
Elmira announced the hiring of Jake Bobrowski as head coach of women’s hockey.
Bobrowski becomes the eighth head coach in program history following the departure of Tim Crowley earlier this offseason.
“We feel very fortunate to have Jake join our team as the new head coach of women’s ice hockey,” Elmira athletic director Rhonda Faunce said in a statement. “Jake is an accomplished coach and scout who is able to step up to our current level of competition to make sure we don’t miss a thing. Our team deserves someone of their caliber, and we can’t wait for the season to begin to see what they can accomplish this year.
“I am honored to be named the new head coach of Elmira College Women’s Ice Hockey,” added Bobrowski. “I look forward to continuing a proud tradition of pride and excellence in this program. I would like to thank Rhonda (Faunce), Erin (Gehen), President Lindsay, and the search committee and panel members for this opportunity. My family and I are thrilled to join the Elmira family and look forward to seeing what this group of talented young women can accomplish.
Bobrowski begins his head coaching career with the Soaring Eagles after a year-long stint with Minnesota as assistant coach of the Gophers women’s hockey team.
Prior to Minnesota, Bobrowski spent six seasons at Hamline, where he helped the Pipers to back-to-back Frozen Fours and the 2019 National Championship Game as an assistant coach.
Prior to his time at Hamline, Bobrowski was the head coach of the Hill-Murray junior varsity women’s hockey team and the assistant coach of the Pioneers varsity team.
