College Hockey:
Princeton in need of new head coach after Prier resigns

Bob Prier has resigned as Princeton’s head coach after three seasons behind the Tigers’ bench.

“On behalf of the Princeton University, I’d like to wish Bob Prier the best of luck in the next chapter of his career,” Princeton athletic director Gary Walters said in a statement. “Bob has represented Princeton with great energy and passion, and he had a great love for the Princeton hockey program. We wish him and his family well.”

Prier was 25-58-12 at Princeton and the Tigers finished a distant 12th in 12-team ECAC Hockey this season.

Before coming to Princeton, Prier spent nine years as an assistant coach at his alma mater, St. Lawrence.

A national search for Prier’s successor will be held.
