Darrow came to UMass-Lowell after four years as a student assistant with the Michigan State University hockey program, breaking down game film for the Spartans coaching staff. Darrow earned his master’s of business administration from UMass-Lowell in 2017 after graduating with a bachelor’s degree in communications from Michigan State in 2011.
