He was also an assistant coach of men’s ice hockey at Lake Superior State University (1985-86) and Ferris State (1986-89).

Mancini, who played collegiate hockey at Colorado College (1978-1982), served on the coaching staff of several US teams during his career, including at the U17, U18, U20 and men’s national team levels.
