DURHAM, N.H. - The contract of University of New Hampshire women's ice hockey head coach Karen Kay has not been extended for the 2002-03 academic year, UNH Athletic Director Marty Scarano announced Tuesday afternoon.
"After a thorough review of the program, I feel it is in the best interest of the women's ice hockey program at UNH to find new leadership," Scarano said.
A national search will convene immediately with the intent to find a coach who will embody the high standards of the University of New Hampshire and to bring the program back to national prominence.
A search committee to find the third head coach in the 25-year history of varsity women's ice hockey at New Hampshire will be convened and a national search commenced with the intent to find Kay's successor as soon as possible.
Coach Kay compiled a 215-90-25 record in 10 seasons (1992-93 through 2001-02) at UNH.
