ATHENS, Ohio – Ohio University field hockey head coach Neil Macmillan has announced the hiring of Tiffany Hubbard as the program’s associate head coach.
Hubbard comes to Ohio after spending the past seven seasons as the head coach at Georgetown University.
“I’m extremely excited to have Tiffany on board," Macmillan said. "She brings a wealth of experience as a former head coach. She’s someone who’s been through the challenges of running a program and will be a valuable member of our staff in the office and on the field. I have no doubt she will help this program develop.”
Hubbard played her collegiate field hockey at ACC power Maryland (2002-05), where she helped lead the Terrapins to three NCAA Final Fours and their fourth national title in program history as a senior.
During her senior campaign, Tiffany (Marsh) Hubbard earned her third-consecutive NFHCA Second Team All-Region award after racking up 39 points on 12 goals and a team-high 15 assists. She was named to the 2005 NCAA All-Tournament Team.
In four seasons with the Terrapins, Hubbard accumulated 102 points while playing in 93 games, starting 80. In her senior season, she started all 25 games for Maryland and reached 100 career points on an assist against American.
“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 said. “She has great experience on the field that will translate into her coaching here in Athens.”
Hubbard also has been active on the international scene, playing for the U.S. Under-19 team, Under-18 team and Under- 16 team during her post-collegiate career. Hubbard has also been involved in the National Futures program and was 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.”
