After the worst season of his six-year tenure, women’s hockey coach Tim Bothwell apologized and announced his resignation on March 7.
In his six years, Bothwell managed 40 total wins, 21 in Hockey East, amounting a 40-138-21 record overall.
“It is with a great deal of professional disappointment that I announce my resignation today,” said Bothwell. “I was hired to move the UVM women’s hockey program forward and we have moved forward in very significant ways since expected.”
The 2011-2012 season meant an overall record of 4-22-6 for the Cats and, once again, an absence in the Hockey East tournament.
The search for a new head coach will begin immediately according to UVM director of athletics Robert Corran. Assistant coaches Mike Gilligan and Grant Kimball will manage the program until Bothwell’s successor is found.
