Buff State hires Candice Moxley

by Amy Moritz

Buffalo State today announced the hiring of Candice Moxley as its women's hockey coach. Moxley was a former standout for the Niagara program, playing from 2001-05 and was a member of the Purple Eagles Frozen Four team her freshman year. At Niagara, she played in 135 games scoring 34 goals with 78 points. 

Most recently, Moxley spent the last three seasons as an assistant at Ohio State under Nate Handrahan, a former player and coach at Niagara.

Her coaching experience includes serving one season as head coach at Trinity College School in Port Hope, Ontario and two years as an assistant at Robert Morris where she also worked with Handrahan.

Moxley takes over a Buffalo State program which went just 6-18-1 this season as a member of ECAC D-III West. The Bengals have not had a winning season since 2000-01 when the team went 11-4-1 as a Division III independent.

Since Niagara eliminated its women's hockey program, Buffalo State is the only Western New York college to sponsor a varsity women's hockey program.
