Quinnipiac Rewards Seeley With Contract Extension

Quinnipiac women’s coach Rick Seeley has signed a contract extension through the 2014-15 season.

Seeley led the Bobcats to the best record in school history last season, a 19-10-8 record that made him the coach of the year in ECAC Hockey.

“I am thrilled with my contract extension Quinnipiac University has quickly become home for my family,” Seeley said in a statement. “I feel so fortunate to enjoy the incredible support President John Lahey and Director of Athletics Jack McDonald have shown me and my program since I arrived here two years ago. I am excited about the direction our program is taking as we continue to establish Quinnipiac as one of the elite programs in ECAC Hockey, and the nation.”

The Bobcats were 3-26-5 in Seeley’s first season, and the 16-win improvement marks the largest gain in consecutive seasons for a coach, according to the school.
