Bob Prier Resigns at Princeton
CHN Staff Report
Princeton head coach Bob Prier resigned on Monday after three seasons behind the bench.
The Tigers finished the 2013-14 season with a 6-26-0 record.
"On behalf of the Princeton University, I'd like to best wish Bob Prier the best of luck in the next chapter of his career," Princeton AD Gary Walters said. "Bob has represented Princeton with great energy and passion, and he had a great love for the Princeton hockey program. We wish him and his family well."
Sources indicated to CHN that Prier resigned under pressure. The assistant coaches, Scott Garrow and Greg Gardner, remain on staff, under contract, for now.
Walters is in his final season as AD at Princeton. The new athletic director, Mollie Marcoux, a former Princeton women's hockey player, has been named, but doesn't begin her duties until August.
Before coming to Princeton, Prier spent nine years as an assistant coach at his alma mater, St. Lawrence University.
In his three seasons, the Tigers went 25-58-12 with Prier at the helm. He took over for Guy Gadowsky, prior to the 2011-12 season, and inherited a team that went 17-13-2 in 2010-11. The Tigers made the NCAA tournament in 2007-08 and 2008-09.
