Ohio University field hockey head coach Neil Macmillan hired Tiffany Hubbard as the program’s associate head coach Thursday.
Hubbard spent the past seven seasons as the head coach for Georgetown University’s field hockey team.
As a collegiate player for the Maryland Terrapins (2002-05), Hubbard led her team to three NCAA Final Fours and to a national title. During her senior season, Hubbard received her third-consecutive NFHCA Second Team All-Region award along with being named to the 2005 NCAA All-Tournament Team.
Hubbard accumulated 102 points during her four seasons with Maryland, while playing in 93 games, starting 80. During her senior campaign, she reached 100 career points and started all 25 games for the Terrapins.
“Tiffany’s pedigree as a player at Maryland – coming through one of the best programs in the nation – is something that will be an immense help for our players,” Macmillan told OhioBobcats.com. “She has great experience on the field that will translate into her coaching here in Athens.”
Aside from her collegiate career, Hubbard participated in the international scene as well. She played for the United States Under-19 team, Under-18 team and Under-16 team along with being involved in the National Futures program. Hubbard was later named to the USFHA EPTC Maryland Thundersticks.
“I was drawn to this job right away knowing Neil, the kind of coach he is, the program he runs and how competitive it is in the MAC,” Hubbard said. “From what I’ve heard from the girls I’ve talked to, they’re already talking about the MAC Championship next season and I love that going in that they’re already aiming high. It gives us something to strive for in the offseason.”
