Matt Francis will embark on his first season with the Friars as an assistant coach during the 2016-17 academic year.

While at Binghamton, Francis served as the program's recruiting coordinator, defensive coordinator and face-off coordinator.

Following his junior season in 2009, he ranked seventh in the nation in face-off percentage with a mark of .576 and fifth in ground balls per game (6.46).

Francis earned a Bachelor of Science degree from Marist in biomedical sciences, and also minored in psychology and business administration. He went on to earn an MBA from Marist in 2012 with an advanced certificate in executive leadership.
