Sources indicate that Western Michigan assistant hockey coach Scott Garrow is the leading candidate for the top assistant job at Cornell. Both US Hockey Report and US College Hockey Online have confirmed Garrow's hiring by Cornell, however both WMU head coach Jim Culhane and Cornell head coach Mike Schafer have declined comment.
Garrow, a 33-year old native of Goderich, Ontario was an assistant at Cornell from 1995-99 which followed a one year stint as volunteer coach at Western Michigan (1994-95 season). His current duties as the top assistant at WMU, which began in 1999, include on ice coaching of forwards, defensemen line changes during games, breaking down game tape, recruiting coordinator, along with various administrative duties.
Garrow is a graduate of Western Michigan (1992) and played while current Cornell head coach Mike Schafer was an assistant under Bill Wilkinson at WMU. During his career Garrow competed in a school record 161 consecutive games, which accounts for every game scheduled for WMU during his four years on the team's roster.
Garrow is an outstanding recruiter that will be missed at WMU. He was responsible for bringing in talent such as CCHA Rookie of the Year Pat Dwyer during his stay at WMU.
There has not yet been speculation as to who will replace Garrow behind the WMU bench for next season.
