Cowan Stepping Down as Head Coach at Marian
From Marian Sports Information
FOND DU LAC, Wis. (SabreAthletics.com) – After leading the Marian University women's hockey program for the first three years of its existence, Mike Cowan has decided to step down and retire from his post, according to Interim Athletic Director Jason Murphy. Cowan made the announcement to his team following their season finale against St. Norbert College, Saturday, Feb. 18.
Cowan, a major contributor to the program, led the Sabres to a 4-65-4 overall record in three seasons at the helm. He leaves his mark as not only the first coach in program history, but also as the one who organized and carried through the construction of a state-of-the-art locker room facility located at the team's home arena, the Blue Line Family Ice Center. His passion for hockey and, more specifically, for the women he coached, will surely be missed.
“I want to thank Mike Cowan for his many contributions to our women's hockey program,” Murphy stated. “He came to Marian with the daunting task of starting this program and leading a charge in building a locker room for the team. Mike will always remain a part of the Marian family and we will be forever grateful for his contributions. We wish him the best in his retirement.”
Marian University will begin a national search for the program's second head coach, immediately.
