University head hockey coach Scott Paluch has resigned his position and has taken a role as a regional manager for USA Hockey in its American Develpment Model.

Assistant coach and former player Dennis Williams will serve as interim head coach for the 2009-10 season.

According to Athletic Director Greg Christopher, Williams was chosen due to his familiarity with the program along with his previous head coaching experience. Williams built Neumann College’s hockey program (Division III) in Pennsylvania from three wins to 17 in two years, giving him an edge to turn programs around Christopher said.

Paluch’s record was 84-156-23 in his seven seasons at the University.
