UMass Hockey Set To Hire Vermont Associate Coach John Micheletto

It looks like UMass hockey's prolonged head coaching search has finally come to an end. The Daily Hampshire Gazette's Matt Vautour is reporting that Vermont associate head coach John Micheletto will be introduced as the school's new coach as soon as Monday.

Micheletto has been an assistant at UVM for nine years and also served on the Notre Dame and Union staffs. He currently serves as UVM's recruiting coordinator and offensive coach.

UMass becomes the fourth Hockey East program to make a coaching change in the last two years, joining UMass-Lowell (Norm Bazin), Northeastern (Jim Madigan) and Providence (Nate Leaman), which all made coaching moves last offseason. Probably shouldn't come as a surprise that the Big Four programs have the longest tenured coaches at their current stops. Jerry York enters his 19th season with the Eagles, good for third on HEA's longest tenured list behind Jack Parker (entering his 40th season at BU) and Dick Umile (22nd).
