Paul Pearl Leaving Holy Cross To Become Harvard Assistant
CHN Staff Report
Holy Cross head coach Paul Pearl has accepted an open position as assistant coach at Harvard, and will be leaving Holy Cross, College Hockey News has learned.
Pearl, who just completed his 19th season behind the Crusader bench, has a career record of 297-293-69.
Pearl will be taking over the position vacated by Albie O'Connell last month when he accepted an assistant position at Boston University, his alma mater.
[Update: Holy Cross made the news official May 16.]
“I am saddened to see coach Pearl go, as he has been a big part of this great institution both as a student-athlete and a coach,” Holy Cross athletic director Nathan Pine said. “But we support Paul and his family in this decision and wish him continued success. The foundation that he has laid at Holy Cross positions us very well as we begin our national search for his successor, to continue the advancement of Holy Cross hockey.”
