Marist announced the hiring of Mike Maker as head coach on Tuesday afternoon.
Maker spent the past six seasons as the head coach of Williams College, a Division III program in Massachusetts. The Ephs have one of the strongest D-III programs in the country, and that didn’t change under Maker, who led them to two national title games and three Final Fours in six seasons. Williams was 28-5 last season, winning the loaded NESCAC.
Maker has coached at the Division I level as well, working as an assistant at Dartmouth, Samford, Creighton and West Virginia.
He will replace Jeff Bower, who was hired last season and went 12-19 in his one year in Poughkeepsie.
