Ron Fogarty has left his position as coach of the Adrian hockey team to become coach at Princeton. Fogarty was scheduled to be introduced in a news conference Tuesday afternoon, Princeton announced on its website.
Fogarty has the highest winning percentage among active NCAA coaches (.879), going 167-23-10 in seven seasons guiding Adrian.
“It was an honor to be considered for this position and now a privilege to be named the head coach of the Princeton hockey program,” Fogarty said in a statement. “With great enthusiasm, I look forward to building a program that will consistently compete for Ivy League and ECAC championships.”
Fogarty has been the only hockey coach Division III Adrian has known, leading them to a 26-3 record in 2007-08, their inaugural year. The 26 wins remains an NCAA record for a first-year hockey program.
He was named the Midwest Collegiate Hockey Association Coach of the Year three times and was a finalist for national coach of the year four times.
