Logan Bittle has been elevated from assistant coach to associate head coach of the Robert Morris women’s team.
A former player at RMU from 2004 to 2008, Bittle has been an assistant under head coach Paul Colontino the past five seasons.
“Some of the big things that make [Logan] so deserving of this title are his work ethic and his loyalty to not only the hockey programs, but the school as a whole,” said Colontino in a statement. “He’s got a true love and passion for Robert Morris and Robert Morris athletics that filters down into his specific role with the women’s hockey program. He’s just earned the title and he’s earned it through his actions. I’m extremely excited about this opportunity for him.”
“I’ve been here since day one of the men’s program,” Bittle added. “So to see how Robert Morris has developed as a school and as a hockey program in the last 10 years is something special. It’s definitely family for my wife [Brianne McLaughlin] and I. She played here as well, so we’re both really happy to be connected with Robert Morris and it’s quite an honor to be named associate head coach of a program I’ve been a part of for some time now.
“I know a lot of our girls have been working really hard this summer, so once they get back and the new players get settled and comfortable with college life, our main goals are to grow as a team and work together toward the common goal we have of winning the CHA championship and advancing to the NCAA tournament.”
