After being suspended indefinitely by the Air Force Academy, former Falcons head coach Eric Seremet has been hired by Rutgers as an assistant coach, multiple sources tell College Crosse.

Seremet will replace Jim Mitchell, who became Bellarmine’s head coach on June 20, as the team’s offensive coordinator.

Seremet spent nine seasons as head coach at Air Force and was the top assistant at the Academy for seven years. He led the Falcons to an ECAC Championship in 2014, the team’s first NCAA Tournament bid since 1988, and two consecutive SoCon Championships in 2016 and 2017.

Prior to his time at Air Force, Seremet spent time at Cornell, Stony Brook, and Dartmouth.

There’s no word on what Air Force will do at head coach. There’s a potential chance interim head coach Bill Wilson remains at the post for another season.

Colgate narrows candidates

The Colgate Raiders have at least three finalists for their head coaching vacancy, a source tells College Crosse.

Loyola’s Marc Van Arsdale, Maryland’s JL Reppert, and Ohio State’s Brad Ross are some of the finalists to replace former head coach Mike Murphy, who resigned from the school back on June 19, according to a source. A second source says Yale’s Andrew Stimmel and Virginia’s Sean Kirwan are also being considered.

Murphy was named head coach of The Hill School in Pennsylvania on July 17.

Colgate has also lost Mike Abbott to Penn and Jud Hall to Lafayette since Murphy’s resignation.

Along with Colgate, there are still assistant openings at Albany, Bellarmine, Bucknell, Brown, Harvard, Holy Cross, North Carolina, and Siena.
