Vermont has signed men’s coach Kevin Sneddon to a contract extension through the 2017-18 season.
“We look forward with much optimism and excitement knowing that our men’s hockey program will continue in the very capable hands of Kevin and his staff,” said associate vice president and director of athletics Dr. Robert Corran in a statement. “He, and they, have done a remarkable job in building UVM hockey into a true championship contender in the toughest conference in the country, and I look forward to celebrating much more success with them in the years ahead.”
Sneddon, who has been at the helm of the men’s hockey program since 2003, has guided Vermont to back-to-back 20-win campaigns for just the third time in its Division I era. He has led the Catamounts to three NCAA tournament berths in the last seven seasons, including the program’s second-ever NCAA Frozen Four berth in 2009.
“I am very honored to receive this contract extension and I look forward to leading our program into the future,” added Sneddon. “I would like to thank President Sullivan and Bob Corran for their support and this opportunity to continue our work at a great university with such a storied hockey program.”
