College Hockey:
Hockey East hiring full-time officiating coordinator

Hockey East is looking to hire a full-time officiating coordinator and hopes to have the position filled on or about July 1.

Currently, Richard Decaprio is the supervisor of officials, a part-time position, and John Jones is Decaprio’s assistant.

According to the new job description, an ideal applicant should have at least five years of officiating or coaching experience and organizational and leadership skills. The job duties also entail working with and training on-ice officials, developing a budget for the officials and will resolve conflicts between teams and officials.

The position’s salary will be commensurate with experience.

CCHA director of officiating Steve Piotrowski was recently named to a similar position for the Big Ten, starting in 2013.

To apply for the Hockey East job, go to NCAA.org or send a resume with three references by June 8 to:

Joe Bertagna
Commissioner, Hockey East
591 North Avenue
Doorway #2
Wakefield, MA 01880

    It’s still funny watching all those HE schools with their girls badminton sized arenas trying to keep up with the hockey hotbed of the WCHA.

      Yes they are struggling because a Hockey East school has won 4 of the last 5 championships, and have had a representative in the finals every year but two since 2000 (UNH and Maine both made appearances, not just BC). Yes they are really struggling.

        Maine and UNH. Best two runners up of the century as far as I am concerned.

    You can have Paul Stewart if you want.
