‘Health issues’ lead to Massachusetts-Boston women’s coach Harris stepping down

Colleen Harris recently stepped down from her post as Massachusetts-Boston women’s head coach.

Harris fell on the ice after a game at Norwich late last season and reportedly, has not recovered fully to come back and coach.

“Unfortunately, Coach Harris is no longer at UMass Boston due to health issues,” said a UMB spokesman in an email to USCHO.com. “The fall at Norwich was the reason why she could not return to the team. We are currently in the process of hiring an interim head coach. The announcement of the successful candidate will be made within the next couple of weeks.”

Last season, Massachusetts-Boston finished 10-13-4 in Harris’ fifth season behind the bench. The Beacons went 52-64-16 overall over Harris’ tenure.

Harris, who did not respond to an email inquiry from USCHO.com staff for this story, graduated in 2008 from Boston College.
