Rideout is a 2016 graduate of New Hampshire and spent the last two years working as an assistant at Siena, including, most recently, in the role of interim head coach.
Rideout will join Fowler and associate head coach Pattie Gillern on the sideline this spring for the exhibition season before her first full season in the fall.
“The addition of Taylor complements our staff and program nicely. She has a strong work ethic coupled with her affinity to teach the game,” Fowler said. “She will immediately jump into our spring season and will hit the road recruiting in no time.
“We’re fortunate to have found an assistant with Division I playing and coaching experience,” Fowler added. “We’re very excited to have Taylor joining us in Hanover.”
A native of Barrington, Rhode Island, Rideout played for UNH from 2012-15, appearing in 63 games as a member of the Wildcats.
“I am so excited to join the Dartmouth field hockey family. It is a privilege to be learning from Amy and Pattie as well as working with exceptional student-athletes,” Rideout said. “I look forward to using my experience to add fresh ideas and contributing to the success of the program.”
As a member of the Saints’ coaching staff, Rideout established and directed Siena’s Prospect Day and served as the Director of Siena Field Hockey Summer Camp, while also working at 12 different camps and club programs in the last five years. One of those camps was Peak Field Hockey at Dartmouth College, run by the Big Green’s staff.
