Maritime Academy gains Patricia O’Brien
Salem State Hall of Famer Patricia O’Brien has taken on a new challenge: assistant director of athletics at Massachusetts Maritime Academy.
A 1989 Salem State graduate, O’Brien is making the move to Buzzards Bay from Framingham State University, where she served as women’s basketball coach and recruiting coordinator the past five seasons. At the Academy, she will focus on recruitment and retention of student-athletes, as well as serve as the department’s NCAA compliance officer.
A Kodak All-American on the basketball court at Salem State, she was a member of the Division 3 national championship team in 1986 and the Vikings compiled a 95-19 mark in her four seasons. She has also coached at Rivier, Colby, and MIT.
