Middlebury College has announced the hiring of Brian Cady as the school's new assistant men's and women's squash coach. The Middlebury College graduate was a four-year member of the men's squash and golf teams while on campus, earning a degree in psychology in May of 2011.
"We are incredibly happy and fortunate to have Brian returning to the Middlebury squash program as an assistant coach," said interim head coach Mike Morgan. "In his time at Middlebury, he was consistently one of the hardest workers and classiest competitors in the region. His playing record speaks for itself, but his work ethic, passion for improvement, and squash knowledge will definitely help raise the bar in our squash programs."
Cady joined the men's squash team during its first year with varsity status and spent four years on the squad. His teams twice won both the Summers Cup and the College Squash Association (CSA) Team Sportsmanship award. He played in slots 2-4 during his time with the Panthers, serving as a captain his senior year.
On the golf course, Cady was the 2010 NESCAC Player of the Year. He earned All-NESCAC honors on three different occasions, with his team capturing the NESCAC Championship in 2009 and 2011. The squad advanced to the NCAA Championship in each of those seasons, with Cady competing at the championship event.
Before entering Middlebury, Cady played on the junior squash tour and was ranked as high as seventh nationally among players under 17. Following graduation, Cady worked as a squash coach at the Princeton Club in New York City, giving lessons and running clinics.
He has spent the last two years working in the banking industry in New York.
