College Hockey:
Trouble at Merrimack

Merrimack players have voted unanimously to request Chris Serino step down as head coach of the team, according to sources. Serino also serves as the school’s athletic director.

Merrimack suffered through a poor season, going 8-26-2 (1-22-1 Hockey East) and not winning a game after December. Following the season, longtime assistant coach Stu Irving was fired, and the associate coach, Mike Doneghy, left to take a job in junior hockey.

According to a report on USHR.com, if Serino doesn’t step down, the players will take their grievance to school president Richard Santagati. Serino and Santagati are considered to be close, which would put Santagati in a difficult position.
