Scott Borek enters his third season as Providence College's Associate Head Coach after being named to the position on June 5, 2015. It marks his second stint with the Friars, having served as an assistant coach from 1985-88.

Prior to joining Nate Leaman's staff at Providence, Borek coached for 13 seasons at the University of New Hampshire. He began his tenure at UNH as an assistant coach for the 2002-03 season and has been the Wildcats' Associate Head Coach since the 2003-04 season. He served as the Wildcats' recruiting coordinator and his primary responsibilities with the team included working with the offense/forwards and working with the power-play unit.

While at New Hampshire, Borek guided the Wildcats to nine NCAA Tournament appearances and a trip to the 2003 Frozen Four NCAA Championship game (Buffalo, N.Y.). Borek also helped UNH to one Hockey East Tournament title (2003) and four Hockey East Tournament Championship game appearances.

Prior to joining Dick Umile's staff at New Hampshire, Borek served as the head coach at New England College in Henniker, N.H., for the 2001-02 season.

Borek also was the head coach of Lake Superior State of the Central Collegiate Hockey Association for five seasons (1996-2001), following a one year stint as Associate Head Coach with the Lakers (1995-96). As the Lakers' head coach, he was named the CCHA Coach of the Year in 2000 and also was a Spencer Penrose Award Finalist, given to the Div. I National Coach of the Year.

Borek's coaching career began after he sustained a neck injury during his sophomore campaign at Dartmouth College. He graduated from Dartmouth in 1985 with a B.A. in English and became the Big Green's second assistant coach for the 1985-86 season, working alongside current Dartmouth Head Coach, Bob Gaudet.

Borek then moved to Providence College, where he worked under Friar Head Coach Mike McShane for three seasons (1985-88). Next, he spent three years at Brown University (1988-92) as Gaudet's assistant. He then served as the head coach at Colby College (Div. III) for three seasons before heading to Lake Superior State. At Colby, he was a finalist for the Eddie Jeremiah National Div. III National Coach of the Year Award in 1994.

Borek is married to the former Jill McCune of Belmont, MA. Together they have seven children, including Madeline Borek Harris (23), who along with her husband Caleb Harris live in Pennsylvania, Charley who is a freshmen at Tufts University, and Owen who is a junior at Brooks School in North Andover, MA. Borek’s son Gordie tragically passed in 2016 at the age of 22, as a sophomore at the University of New Hampshire. Jack, Jacob and Emma are age 15 and presently entering 9th grade at Triton School in Newbury, MA.
