Holy Cross coach Paul Pearl and the school have agreed to a three-year contract extension, the school announced Wednesday.
Pearl has a 225-224-54 record in nearly 15 full seasons with the Crusaders. He became the school’s all-time winningest coach in 2006 with his 168th victory.

“I am happy that Paul has committed his future to Holy Cross,” Holy Cross athletic director Richard M. Regan said in a news release. “His values are entirely consistent with those of the College. He continues to maintain a competitive hockey program in an increasingly competitive environment, and at the same time his players graduate and make academic progress as well as any in the country.”
Pearl orchestrated one of the biggest upsets in NCAA tournament history in 2006 when the Crusaders beat No. 2 overall seed Minnesota in overtime in the first round.
“Holy Cross is a special place for me and my family and we love being a part of it,” Pearl said. “The future is very bright for our hockey program and I am honored to be able to lead it.”
