Arizona Hockey head coach Sean Hogan resigns

Arizona hockey is in need of a new head coach after Sean Hogan resigned and decided to accept the hockey head coaching job with Ohio University.

“I have decided to start a new chapter in my life and move closer to my family,” Hogan said in a press release. “The opportunity at Ohio University allows me to do that and I look forward to the new challenges in Athens, Ohio.”

Hogan became the program’s second head coach after he replaced Leo Golembieski in the summer of 2011. Last season Hogan led Arizona to its first ACHA Division I national tournament appearance since 2006.

The Wildcats finished the 2013-14 season with a 17-24 record and compiled five victories over top-5 opponents, two of which were ranked No. 1 overall.

Wildcat hockey said in a press release a national search has begun for a new head coach.
