Norwich University chose Keith Maurice as its first full-time women’s ice hockey assistant coach prior to the 2010-11 season. Maurice, who has served as a part-time assistant coach with the Cadets since 2003, enters his third season as a full-time member of Bolding's staff.
Maurice has helped Bolding build the Cadets' women's hockey program into a perennial powerhouse in Division III hockey. He has helped guide the team to the last four NCAA Tournaments, including winning the 2011 National Championship. Last season, NU made its third straight appearance in the national championship game, falling to RIT 4-1 in the title game.
Maurice has also served as a head coach and assistant coach at several USA Hockey festivals for select 12-, 13- and 14-year old players.
Maurice was a member of the Norwich University men’s ice hockey team from 1998-2002, and he helped the Cadets capture their first of three NCAA Division III national championships in 2000. The defenseman captained the 2002 squad, which lost the national title game. During his four-year playing career at Norwich, the Cadets also won three ECAC East Tournament championships and made three trips to the NCAA Final Four. The 2002 Norwich graduate also earned ECAC East second-team honors as a senior.
Keith and his wife Meghan reside in Barre with their sons Chace and Max.
