Air Force and coach Frank Serratore have agreed to a new five-year contract that will keep Serratore behind the Falcons’ bench through the 2013-14 season, the school announced Monday.
Serratore, who is in his 13th season with Air Force, has led the Falcons to three straight NCAA tournament appearances after Atlantic Hockey postseason championships.
He has a 200-216-32 overall record at the Academy and led the team to a program-best 28 wins last season.
“Frank has committed to building a successful program on and off the ice,” Air Force associate athletic director Dermot Coll said. “The success the team has had the last few years is a direct reflection of the hard work and effort he and his staff have put into this program. The Academy is proud of the team and coaches and all that they have accomplished on the ice, in the classroom and in the community.”
Details of the contract are being finalized, the school announced.
