Matt Lindsay, who was named an assistant coach May 4, 2011, helped lead the Nittany Lions to a 13-14-0 record during their inaugural NCAA Division I season.
Lindsay helped guide Penn State to several marquee victories, including wins against three future Big Ten opponents (Michigan State, Ohio State, Wisconsin). The Nittany Lions, who competed as an independent in 2012-13, will join the Big Ten for its first season in 2013-14.
From 2007-11, Lindsay served as an assistant coach at Princeton, where he helped guide the Tigers to two NCAA tournament appearances (2008, 2009) and the 2008 ECAC Hockey title.
Prior to his time at Princeton, Lindsay spent the 2006-07 season as an assistant coach at Robert Morris.
With the Colonials, Lindsay served as the team's video coordinator and helped with recruiting. He joined Robert Morris' staff following one season as a volunteer assistant coach at Colorado College, where he handled video, pre-scouting and one-ice responsibilities.
Before Colorado College, Lindsay served three seasons (2002-05) as an assistant coach at Hobart College and one season (2001-02) in the same capacity at Utica College.
Lindsay, who graduated from Williams College in 2001, earned the William E. McCormick "Coaches" Award as a senior. The award is presented to a member of the hockey team who best exemplifies leadership, loyalty, a selfless devotion to the team, a youthful delight in the game of hockey and, above all, a strong commitment to community service.
