University of Massachusetts has fired John Micheletto as the school's head hockey coach, it was announced in a press release Sunday morning. The move comes less than 12 hours after the Minutemen were eliminated from the Hockey East Playoffs by Boston University in two games.
"On behalf of UMass Athletics, we thank John for his four years in Amherst," UMass Athletic Director Ryan Bamford said in the statement. "John worked hard to improve our hockey program and we wish him well with his future endeavors."
The former Vermont assistant just completed his fourth season behind the bench in Amherst, compiling a record of 39-88-13. He took over for Don 'Toot' Cahoon after a botch search during the summer of 2012.
