Merrimack Will Make Scott Borek’s Hiring Official


Merrimack College will make Scott Borek‘s hiring official this week.

Borek was a finalist for the job along with Paul Pearl (Harvard associate head coach) and Jerry Keefe (Northeastern associate head coach). All three candidates were brought on campus last week for interviews; only Borek and Pearl met with the current players, who were made a part of the process.

Borek, 55, was the only candidate who was offered the position. Merrimack had more on-campus interviews scheduled for this week but they were cancelled after Borek accepted the job. According to a Merrimack source, no one turned down the position or took themselves out of the running. Borek was the first and only candidate offered the job.

Since 2002, when Borek joined Dick Umile‘s staff at UNH, the teams he has been a part of (13 years at UNH and 3 years at Providence) have combined for a record of 354-205-73, including appearing in 13 of the last 16 NCAA Tournaments.
