While Meghan Duggan will continue playing for the United States’ women’s national team and in the CWHL she will at the same time start a coaching career.

The two-time Olympic silver medallist and four-time world champion signed as an assistant coach for the Clarkson University women’s hockey team that won the NCAA competition in women’s hockey last season. She will join head coach Matt Desrosiers and assistant coach Britni Smith.

For Duggan it’s a return to college hockey. She won three national titles with the University of Wisconsin and won the Patty Kazmaier Award as the top female NCAA hockey player in her final year in 2011.

“I'm honored to join the Clarkson University Women’s Hockey Coaching Staff and excited to work with such a talented group of players,” stated Duggan. “I would like to thank Matt Desrosiers and the athletics department at Clarkson for the opportunity to coach while continuing to train and compete for the U.S. Women's National Team and in the CWHL. I'm eager to get started and look forward to helping the Golden Knights move forward with another successful season.”
