College Hockey:
Following investigation, Hofmann resigns as Merrimack athletic director

Glenn Hofmann has resigned as Merrimack athletic director, a school source said Tuesday, eight weeks after being put on paid leave.

Also Tuesday, interim athletic director Dean O’Keefe promoted men’s hockey coach Mark Dennehy and women’s basketball coach Monique LeBlanc to associate athletic director positions. Both will keep their coaching responsibilities.

Hofmann was on paid leave since early July, but the school never confirmed why. The Eagle-Tribune reported that Merrimack hired an outside firm to investigate a “personnel matter” involving Hofmann, and that the results will not be released.

Hired by Merrimack in 2009, Hofmann previously was the associate athletic director for external affairs at Niagara.

As part of his promotion, Dennehy will manage the expansion of the Volpe Athletic Center, which is set to add a second hockey rink, new locker rooms, a new weight room and health science facilities.

He also will assist in Hockey East administrative duties and school fundraising.
