>Bowling Green Hires Bergeron

>It was bound to happen sooner or later. Longtime Miami assistant coach Chris Bergeron has been hired by Bowling Green State University and will be officially introduced as the school’s seventh head coach this afternoon at 4 P.M. ET.

“I’m very excited to be a part of putting Bowling Green back where it belongs in the hockey world,” Bergeron said. “My family and I are looking forward to becoming part of the Bowling Green community. What excites me the most, though, is seeing how hungry everyone is to make Bowling Green hockey successful again — from Dr. (Carol) Cartwright to (AD) Greg Christopher to everyone I talked to during the interview process.” (BG News Release)

Bergeron is the second former Miami assistant coach to be hired by a CCHA program this off-season, as Jeff Blashill was hired as the next Western Michigan head coach earlier this month. Congratulations and best of luck to Berg, his wife Janis and the rest of their family. His numerous contributions to the Miami Hockey program will be sorely missed.
