Doctor primarily works with the team's faceoff group, and has coached redshirt junior Drake Kreinz to over-.500 winning percentage at the faceoff 'X' each of his two years as the team's faceoff specialist in 2014 and 2015. Doctor's coaching helped Danny Henneghan to a 57.5 faceoff winning percentage in 2013 as Henneghan earned All-CAA First Team. Henneghan graduated from Penn State as the school's all-time leader in faceoff wins.
Prior to Penn State, Doctor served as offensive coordinator at Lafayette for four seasons (2007-10). With the Leopards, Doctor assisted with planning daily practices and recruiting. He helped coach seven All-Patriot League players and a league Midfielder of the Year and Rookie of the Year.
At Lafayette, Doctor helped coach the nation's leader in goals per game in 2009 and, in 2010, the team finished among the nation's top ten in goals per game as Lafayette made the Patriot League tournament for the first time in program history.
Doctor is also active with the Iroquois Nationals program, serving as an assistant coach for the team's 2014 FIL World Championship showing. A four-year letter-winner at Rutgers (2004-07), Doctor earned the team's Alfred Sasser Award as both a junior and senior for leading the team in assists. During his career, the Scarlet Knights recorded 29 victories in four seasons.
