Director of Athletics Greg Christopher has announced that Chris Bergeron has been named the seventh head coach in the history of the BGSU hockey program. Bergeron comes to Bowling Green after spending 10 seasons as an assistant coach at Miami University.
“Chris’s passion, energy and commitment to excellence won us over,” Christopher said. “As a player, he set the foundation for Miami’s program, then as a coach he helped build the program to its current championship caliber. At every stage, Chris has been known as a tremendous leader. This is his time to step into a head coaching role and lead Bowling Green hockey to prominence.”
As an assistant coach at Miami since 2000, Bergeron was part of eight, 20-win seasons and six trips to the NCAA Tournament. The RedHawks advanced to the Frozen Four in each of the past two seasons, playing in the national championship game during the 2008-09 campaign. Bergeron was heavily involved in the recruiting process, bringing in six players who would become All-Americans, and worked extensively with the team’s forwards.
The Athletic Department will hold a press conference to introduce Chris Bergeron as the new hockey coach at 4 p.m. today (April 12) in the Wilcox Board Room on the third floor of the Sebo Center.
