Notch graduated in 2016 from Indiana State University with an MS in Physical Education.
Prior to Indiana State, Notch served as a volunteer assistant coach at DePauw University. While at DePauw, Notch assisted the staff with daily operations, scouting, recruiting and player development. Notch coached Tommy Fernitz who was named a Div. III All-American and helped DePauw reach the NCAA tournament, ending a six-year drought for the program. Notch graduated from DePauw in 2014 with a BA in Sports Medicine.
"I chose SPC because it is the best in the country," Notch said. "To be able to come here and learn from coach Green is a great honor and privilege. SPC has such a great tradition; I am not sure why someone would not choose to come here. You get a chance to work with not only some of the best players in the country but the best coaches in the country as well. The opportunities to learn and grow as a coach are second to none here at SPC."
