NH College Roundup: UNH women’s hockey team names interim co-head coaches

Associate head coach Jamie Wood and assistant head coach Stephanie Jones will serve as interim co-head coaches of the UNH women’s ice hockey team for the remainder of the season.

UNH athletics director Marty Scarano made the announcement Wednesday. The Wildcats have been without a head coach since Dec. 5, when longtime coach Brian McCloskey was fired after an incident that involved contact with a player on the bench during the team’s Nov. 30 game.

Wood, a 1994 graduate of Middlebury College, joined the coaching staff in June 2010 as an associate head coach. The Wildcats have compiled a 45-64-11 overall record since he joined the program, and that includes 7-10-2 this season.

Jones, a four-year letterwinner for the Wildcats who graduated in 2005, joined the UNH coaching staff as an assistant coach in summer 2006. In seven-plus years with Jones on the bench, the ‘Cats have a 149-87-27 overall record with three Hockey East regular-season and tournament titles (2007-08-09) and four NCAA tournament appearances (2007-08-09-10).
