Inks Schooley to Extension
Derek Schooley, the only coach in the four-year
history of the Robert Morris program, has signed a two-year
contract extension, the school announced Friday. Schooley
is now signed through May 2013.
"I would like to thank University president
Dr. Greg Dell'Omo, [athletic director] Dr. [Craig] Coleman
and the athletic administration for their support, dedication
and commitment toward Robert Morris hockey," Schooley
said. " Our program has made great strides the past
four years and we look forward in helping Robert Morris
build upon the success we've had in the infancy of the program."
Schooley was named the program's first head
coach August 22, 2003, with the responsibility of building
a program that began play during the 2004-05 season. In
2004-05 the Colonials had a roster that consisted of 20
freshmen, three sophomores and one junior and Schooley led
the club to an overall record of 8-21-4. Robert Morris improved
to 12-20-3 in 2005-06, advancing to the semifinals of the
CHA Tournament. Last season the Colonials posted an overall
record of 14-19-2, appearing in their first CHA tournament
championship game against Alabama-Huntsville.
Schooley and the Colonials face off against
Ohio State tonight at Pittsburgh's Mellon Arena.
