Providence today announced the appointment of David Berard and Stan Moore as assistant coaches. Berard has been on the Friar coaching staff for nine years, while Moore, who was an assistant coach for the Friars from 1988-92, most recently was the associate head coach at Colgate.
Berard has spent the past 13 seasons in college hockey, including nine seasons at Providence College. In the last three years, he served as associate head coach under Paul Pooley. Berard returned to Providence before the start of the 1998-99 season after serving as the top assistant for two years at Lake Superior State.

During the 2003-04 season, Moore was the interim head coach and guided the Raiders to a 22-12-5 overall record and the ECAC regular season title. For his efforts, Moore was named ECAC Coach of the Year and became the first interim head coach to ever receive the award. In addition, Moore was a Spencer Penrose Award Finalist, given annually to the top coach in Division I.
Prior to his second stint at Colgate, Moore was the head coach at Union (1996-98), where he became the first rookie head coach to ever receive the ECAC Coach of the Year honors.
Moore began his coaching career as an assistant coach at Brown (1985-88), before moving to Providence (1988-92), where he, along with new Providence coach Tim [nl]Army, served as assistant coaches under Mike McShane. After Providence, Moore left for Colgate where he spent three seasons in his first stint with the Raiders (1992-96).
