RMU 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.
