Carol Mullins, for six years Cornell’s assistant coach, has been named the women’s program’s new head coach. Mullins succeeds Julie Andeberhan, who left Cornell to become head women’s coach at Wisconsin.
“Carol Mullins has done a tremendous job as our assistant women’s ice hockey coach over the last six years and I’m sure she will continue to do an outstanding job for us as our head coach,” said Moore. “We’re expecting her to continue building our program into a national contender.”
“I’m very excited to have the opportunity to continue the tradition here at Cornell,” said Mullins.
A native of Bristol, Vt., Mullins played at New Hampshire from 1987-91 and was named New Hampshire’s Athlete of the Year for 1989-90. Mullins was also a member of the women’s track and field team from 1988-91, a three-time New England collegiate discus champion and a two-time New England javelin champion.
In addition to her hockey coaching duties at Cornell, Mullins was also the Big Red’s assistant women’s soccer coach for two years. Her husband, Jim, is the men’s basketball coach at Ithaca College.
