College Hockey:
Ruhly Out at Lawrence

— Lawrence head coach Dave Ruhly will not be offered a new contract after his current contract expires in June at the end of the 2005-06 academic year.

The announcement was made today by Lawrence athletics director Robert Beeman.

A 1998 graduate of Providence College, Ruhly served as Lawrence’s head coach for seven seasons. Ruhly was the first full-time head coach at Lawrence when he was hired in 1999, and the eighth head coach overall. Hockey has been a varsity sport at Lawrence since 1986.

Ruhly’s team put together a record of 9-14-4 in 2005-06, and the Vikings finished in fourth place in the MCHA with a 7-9-4 record.

In Ruhly’s seven seasons, the Madison, Wis., native compiled a record of 50-119-9. His best season was 2004-05, when Lawrence finished 11-13-2 and took second place in the MCHA.

Beeman said a national search for a new head coach will begin immediately.
