Scott Harlow, who spent seven productive years as the head coach of the Stonehill College hockey team, has resigned, athletic director Paula Sullivan announced this week.
Harlow, who led the Skyhawks to a school-record tying 14 wins on two separate occasions, most recently in 2005-06 season, departs with 67 overall wins, the most in school history.
“Any time a department loses a quality person and coach like Scott Harlow it is tough,” said Sullivan. “I am grateful for the leadership Scott showed during his time with us. We wish him nothing but the best in his future endeavors.”
He led Stonehill to the longest winning streak in school history, a nine-game stretch in 2005-06 and as a result was named Northeast-10/ECAC Coach of the Year. He won the award on two other occasions, once in 2000-01 and again in 2001-02, when he led the Skyhawks to the ECAC/Northeast-10 semifinals. Stonehill was back in the semifinals two other times giving them four appearances in the seven years he served as mentor.
Harlow was an All-America forward at Boston College and graduated in 1986 with a degree in economics. He played in four National Hockey League organizations (Montreal, St. Louis, Boston and Los Angeles) and a year with the Peterborough (England) Pirates.
A national search for his successor will begin immediately.
