Colorado College hockey coach resigns

Longtime Colorado College men’s hockey coach Scott Owens resigned Sunday morning.

The school announced that Owens and Ken Ralph, the school’s athletic director, “agreed upon conclusion of their annual postseason review that it was time for Owens to step down.” The Tigers finished with the 2013-14 season with a record of 7-24-6.

“I have been fortunate to have had the best job in college hockey for the past 15 seasons. It is time for a new coach to enjoy working with our players,” Owens said in a news release from the school in Colorado Springs. “I appreciate the support and encouragement I have received during my tenure and I hope the new leader of the team will be treated with the same respect. This is a tremendous institution and I am proud of what we accomplished here.”

Owens, 58, had been coach at his alma mater for 15 seasons and was the all-time winningest coach in school history with a 324-228-54 record. Other highlights include a 2005 Frozen Four appearance, seven NCAA Tournament berths (most recently in 2011) and three Western Collegiate Hockey Association regular-season titles.

Colorado College competes in the National Collegiate Hockey Conference, along with Minnesota Duluth.
