BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Buffalo State director of athletics Jerry Boyes has named Jim Fowler the interim head women's ice hockey coach for the 2018-19 season.

Fowler coached the Bengals men's team for nine seasons from 1996-2005.  Since that time, he has remained a member of the athletics staff as the department budget manager and the manager of the Buffalo State Ice Arena and will continue to serve in each of those roles.

Prior to his arrival at Buffalo State, Fowler coached at Fredonia, serving as the head JV men's ice hockey coach from 1993-1996 and as an assistant varsity coach from 1991-1996.  During that time, the Blue Devils earned back-to-back SUNYAC titles in 1993 and 1994, while finishing third and second in the nation, respectively.

Fowler competed on the men's ice hockey team at College of DuPage from 1987-1989 and was part of the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) National Championship team in 1988. He continued his player career at Fredonia helping the Blue Devils earned their first SUNYAC and ECAC bids. He completed his bachelor's in history in 1992.

Buffalo State will conduct a national search for a full-time head women's hockey coach immediately upon the end of the 2018-19 season.
