Numerous NCAA violations lead to dismissal of Ohio State women’s coach Potter

According to a report in the Grand Forks Herald, Ohio State terminated the contract of women’s hockey coach Jenny Potter after it had reported several violations to the NCAA during Potter’s one-year tenure at the school.

The report states that Potter’s NCAA violations included hosting an impermissible official visit for a prospect, recruiting during a dead period, playing a pickup hockey game with a potential prospect and having her husband, a non-staff member, recruit on behalf of the university.

Potter’s firing was reported first on Aug. 18.

OSU has not officially named a replacement, but the Herald reports that Minnesota women’s assistant coach Nadine Muzerall will replace Potter.

Potter was initially hired by Ohio State in April 2015.

Prior to being hired at Ohio State, Potter served two years as head coach at Trinity. She played at Minnesota-Duluth during her college days and also on the U.S. National Team, winning four Olympic medals (one gold, two silver, one bronze).
