Scott McDonald

Scott McDonald
Scott McDonald, the program’s all-time leader in coaching wins, begins his 11th season as the Bruce B. Bates Women’s Hockey Coach at RIT in 2016-17, and fifth at the Division I level. In his tenure, McDonald has transformed the Tigers into one of the most successful and respected teams in all of college hockey. McDonald enters the 2016-17 season just six wins shy of 200 for his career at RIT.
On May 28, 2015, McDonald signed a five-year contract extension through the 2019-20 season. That summer, McDonald became the Bruce B. Bates Women’s Hockey Coach; the university's first endowed coaching position for Tiger athletic programs.
On March 17, 2012, McDonald and RIT defeated Norwich 4-1 to claim its first NCAA Division III Championship in its final season at that level. The Tigers opened and ended the year with two 14-game winning streaks and were the No. 1 team in the nation for 18 weeks during the season, finishing with an NCAA record 28 wins (28-1-1).
Three days later, RIT announced its intention to move to the Division I level. McDonald and the Tigers made a successful transition to the Division I ranks in 2012-13, as the team finished 16-16-5 and advanced to the College Hockey America Semifinals.
In nine seasons as head coach at RIT, McDonald has compiled an overall record of 194-99-24 (.650 winning percentage). He is Division III’s all-time leader with a .835 winning percentage and is RIT’s all-time leader in coaching victories, earning his 100th win at RIT on Jan. 29, 2011 vs. Buffalo State. He became the second fastest coach in Division III history to reach that milestone (128 games).
McDonald, the 2011 ECAC West Coach of the Year, has led the Tigers to one NCAA Division I Tournament appearance, three NCAA Division III Tournament berths, two ECAC West Championships, and one CHA title. The Tigers won at least 19 games in each of his first six seasons behind the bench and have won at least 20 games five times.
McDonald led the Tigers to a 21-3-2 record in 2008-09; they were ranked second nationally, the highest in program history. He was named the 2009 ECAC West Co-Coach of the Year and coached two RBK Division III All-Americans (Sarah Dagg and Erica Owczarczak), and seven members of the 2009 All-ECAC West squad.
McDonald led the Western team to the Gold Medal at the 2010 Empire State Games in Buffalo. He also served as an assistant coach with the IK Viking Ishockeyklubb’s junior team in Sweden.
A 2000 graduate of Niagara University, McDonald played defense for the Purple Eagles â€" and then coach and former standout RIT defenseman Blaise MacDonald â€" from 1996-2000. He was part of the school’s inaugural freshman and first graduating classes as a Division I program. During his senior year, he helped Niagara, in only its fourth season, to an NCAA Tournament at-large bid, beating the University of New Hampshire in the northeast regional. He also helped Niagara to an undefeated season in the College Hockey America conference (15-0-2, 30-8-4 overall), as well as the CHA regular season and tournament championships.
McDonald later served as an assistant at Utica College for one season before moving to RIT to serve as the assistant coach for the RIT men’s hockey program from 2003-06. He put forth an outstanding effort in recruiting talented student-athletes as the men’s squad made the leap to Division I in 2005.
McDonald, a native of Oakville, Ontario, is the only person in NCAA history to play at the Division I and III level, and coach at both divisions on both the men’s and women’s sides.
Prior to college, he played in Toronto for the St. Michael’s Buzzers and the North York Rangers. Professionally, McDonald played in Hagfors, Sweden, for the IK Viking Ishockeyklubb. Prior to that, McDonald played with the San Angelo (Texas) Outlaws of the Western Professional Hockey League.
McDonald earned a bachelor’s degree in communication studies from Niagara University in 2000. A native of Oakville, Ontario, McDonald lives in Victor, N.Y. with his wife, Christina, and daughters, Summer and Sienna. [cached]

Before beginning his coaching career, McDonald played four years at Niagara University, helping lead the Purple Eagles to the 2000 NCAA Division I Tournament. McDonald began his coaching career on the men's side as an assistant at Utica College during the 2002-03 season.

"I would like to thank President (Bill) Destler, Dr. (Jim) Watters, Dr. (Sandy) Johnson, and Mr. Lou Spiotti for their incredible support," said McDonald.
