Morrisville announced Wednesday that interim coach Kevin Krogol has been named head coach for the 2013-14 season.
Krogol spent the previous five seasons with the program, serving as an assistant coach for a majority of that time and most recently fulfilling the interim head coach role for the 2012-13 season.
“I’m very excited to be given the chance to continue as head coach at Morrisville State,” Krogol said in a news release. “It’s a terrific opportunity and I believe we have all the support and tools needed to be a successful program.”
This past season, Krogol, who played collegiately at Utica, guided the Mustangs to an overall 4-19-2 record (4-12 SUNYAC).
“I’m grateful to Kevin for the commitment he demonstrated to the college and the hockey program throughout this process,” Morrisville athletic director Greg Carroll added. “It speaks volumes about who he is and what he will bring to Mustang hockey and the athletics program, not just this upcoming season, but in future years as well.”
Aside from coaching, Krogol also spearheaded several charity events and community service initiatives with the program, including awareness and fundraising campaigns for Autism Awareness and Special Olympics.
