Heaney Promoted at Framingham State

Framingham State has named Chris Heaney as its new men’s hockey coach. Heaney, who has an assistant at Framingham last season, replaces Chris Googins, who resigned at the end of the 2004-2005 season.

Heaney, who played at Norwich from 1986-1989 and graduated in 1990, was an assistant coach at Natick High School before moving on to a head coaching position with the Tri-Valley Indians. He joined the Rams coaching staff last season. Heaney takes over a Rams program that has qualified for the ECAC Northeast playoffs the past two years under Googins, who complied a 18-26-2 record in two seasons.
