Merrimack Narrows Search

Merrimack has narrowed its search for a head coach to 10 according to reports in Thursday’s Boston Herald.

Former Northeastern coach Bruce Crowder, whose contract was not renewed this off-season after he spent nine seasons at the helm for the Huskies, leads the list of candidates. Also listed as finalists are former Merrimack player and assistant coach Andy Heinze, Plattsburgh head coach Bob Emery, Holy Cross coach Paul Pearl and Colgate assistant Stan Moore.

According to the report, the interview process will begin within the next two weeks.

The head coaching position became open with Chris Serino, who also served as interim athletic director, resigned to become athletic director and hockey coach at Malden (Mass.) Catholic High School. Merrimack also has yet to fill the athletic director position.
