“We are pleased to have Brian return to our coaching staff,” said Case. “He has a wealth of experience and is an asset to the hockey program here at Brockport.”

Dickinson had taken a season off from his coaching duties overseeing the general day-to-day operations of the Seymour College Union at Brockport. He will also resume his duties as the manager of the Tuttle North Ice Arena.

Dickinson, who began his coaching career at Buffalo State, was behind the Brockport bench from 1996-97 until 2004-05, amassing a 54-140-16 record.

James Eccles, who was an interim coach this season at Brockport, was 4-20-1. Eccles served as an assistant coach to Dickinson for two seasons.
