Princeton Hires Ron Fogarty as Head Coach

The Princeton Tigers announced on Tuesday that Ron Fogarty, formerly head coach at Division III Adrian, will be the Tigers next head coach.

Fogarty was the first head hockey coach at Adrian and built the program into an immediate powerhouse. He amassed a 167-23-10 record with the Bulldogs, including finishing runner-up to St. Norbert's in 2010-2011 national title game. Fogarty was a finalist for head coaching jobs at Alaska-Anchorage and Lake Superior in previous years, though reportedly withdrew his name from consideration after the interview process of both.

Princeton alum Darren Yopyk was at one-time considered a favorite to be hired by Princeton, but Yopyk withdrew his name from consideration last week.

Fogarty is familiar with the ECAC, having played four years of college hockey at Colgate in the early '90s. In Princeton's press release, Fogarty was quoted as saying:

"It was an honor to be considered for this position and now a privilege to be named the head coach of the Princeton hockey program. With great enthusiasm, I look forward to building a program that will consistently compete for Ivy League and ECAC championships. Our players will be recognized for excellence in the classroom, ambassadors for the University in the community and relentless competitors on the ice."

Fogarty will officially be announced as head coach at a press conference at 3pm Tuesday afternoon, which will be streamed live via the Ivy League Digital Network.
