After college, Eric served as a graduate assistant coach at the University of Pittsburgh before coming to Bucknell University as an assistant coach in 2013 under head coach, Joe Susan. Eric maintained his assistant coach role until the end of the 2018 season when coach Susan resigned from Bucknell.
