Eleven coaches have been named finalists for the Edward Jeremiah Award, given annually to the NCAA Division III men’s coach of the year.
Named in honor of the former Dartmouth head coach, the award will be presented during the AHCA Convention on Saturday, May 2, in Naples, Fla., after being announced March 26 at the D-III national tournament banquet.
The nominees are any coach who won or shared Coach of the Year honors in his conference this past season, along with coaches whose teams have advanced to the D-III Frozen Four.
Of this year’s finalists, three were past recipients: Mike McShane of Norwich (1997, 1999, 2000 and 2010), Jack Arena of Amherst (2012) and Matt Loen of Wisconsin-Eau Claire (2013).
