Seeley Contract Extended at Quinnipiac

Quinnipiac women’s hockey coach Rick Seeley signed a contract extension through the 2014-15 season. Terms of the contract have not been disclosed. In his second season at Quinnipiac, Seeley was honored with the ECAC Hockey and New England Hockey Writers New England Division I
Coach of the Year awards.

In 2009-10, Seeley led the Bobcats to their best overall record (19-10-8) in team history and the best conference record (11-4-5) since the team’s inception nine years ago.

But probably the most impressive note is that Seeley is the first coach in U.S. college hockey history, dating back to 1895, to lead his team, from one season to the next, to at least a 16 game improvement in both the win and loss columns (3-26-5 in 2008-09 to 19-10-8 in 2009-10).The University of Wisconsin men's program equaled this feat in the 1976-77 season, but head coach "Badger Bob" Johnson had taken a leave of absence the previous season to coach the U.S. Olympic team, bringing a few of his best players with him.
