College Hockey:
Wiley steps down as Colgate women’s head coach

Colgate announced Wednesday afternoon that Scott Wiley has resigned from his position as head women’s hockey coach.

“We would like to thank Scott for his 10 years of service as a head coach,” stated Colgate director of athletics David Roach in a statement. “We wish him well thank him for all he has contributed to the women’s ice hockey program, to the university and to the community. We wish him and his family the best in his future endeavors.”

During his 10 seasons, Wiley recorded an overall record of 137-174-34, including a 19-14-3 mark during the 2008-09 season in which the 19 wins became a program record. The Raiders also reached the ECAC playoffs in eight of his 10 seasons, including the semifinals during the 2006-07 season.

Wiley, who was named the 2003-04 ECAC coach of the year, joined the Colgate staff as a volunteer assistant coach in 1999 before serving as a full-time assistant for the next two seasons. Wiley began as Colgate’s head coach when the team was in just its second year as a Division I program back in 2002-03.

    Wiley was fired.  told to leave and not bother saying goodbyes. Roach putting up a cheap facade to retain ‘integrity’ of the university.  Opinion of many players on various sports all cite that its Roach who must go. Playing favoritism to a couple sports, football and basketball.  anyone of talent will not go to Colgate – academics will be intense for a jock like SU players

      Not sure about the Wiley/Roach issue, but Colgate is not the right place for “a jock”. However, if you want to be “a student athlete, Colgate is up there among the best. Just look at Austin Smith from the Men’s Hockey Team, up for the Hobey Baker and a model student athlete.
