Owens agrees to contract extension at Colorado College

Scott Owens has agreed to an undisclosed contract extension with Colorado College, the school he has coached the past 13 seasons and graduated from in 1979.

“We wanted to ensure our current players and incoming recruits that Scott Owens will be their coach at Colorado College,” said CC director of athletics Ken Ralph, noting that the private institution does not disclose terms of contracts, in a statement. “Scott’s teams have posted the eighth best winning percentage in Division I hockey over the last 10 years and this contract rewards that performance.

“With our upcoming entry into the NCHC, we wanted to be sure to compensate our coach accordingly and give him the resources necessary to compete for conference and national championships.”

Owens’ teams have averaged better than 23 victories per season since he came on board in 1999. Colorado College has produced two Hobey Baker Award winners (Peter Sejna, 2003, and Marty Sertich, 2005) and 15 All-America selections during his tenure, as well as 17 WCHA Scholar-Athletes the last four years alone. His 292 wins are best all-time at the school.
