University of Arizona Wildcat Hockey Head Coach Sean Hogan announced that he will not return for his fourth season at the helm of the Wildcat Hockey program. Hogan will take over as head coach of the Ohio University Bobcat hockey team.

"I am very fortunate to have had the opportunity to be the head hockey coach at the University of Arizona," stated Hogan. "Tucson and the U of A are very special places, we have had a great group of young men and I am very proud of what they have accomplished during my time here. The players and staff worked extremely hard to bring Arizona Hockey back to the national stage and I am very excited for the future of Wildcat Hockey. I want to thank everyone at the University of Arizona’s Campus Recreation Department, the staff, the students and the faculty of the University of Arizona for making my experience an extremely positive one. I especially want to thank our student athletes who gave everything they had to make Arizona Wildcat Hockey great."

Hogan continued, "I have decided to start a new chapter in my life and move closer to my family. The opportunity at Ohio University allows me to do that and I look forward to the new challenges in Athens, OH."

Hogan came to Arizona in 2011 and took over the former Ice Cat hockey program. Under the guidance of Hogan, the Wildcat Hockey program grew from 13 wins in his first season to 17 wins last season and a berth in the ACHA Division I National Tournament. In Hogan’s final season at the helm, Wildcat Hockey posted the most wins since 2008, earned the first national tournament berth since 2006, ended the 37 game winless streak against archrival Arizona State, and defeated seven top ten teams, the most in 17 seasons. Under Hogan, the Wildcat Hockey program prided itself on only playing the most elite competition, finishing with one of the toughest (according to the ACHA computer polls) schedules two of his three seasons as head coach.

Prior to coming to Tucson, AZ Hogan served as the Director of Video Operations and was an assistant coach with the Western Michigan University Bronco Hockey team. The 2010-2011 Broncos, head coached by Jeff Blashill, finished the season with 19 wins and a berth in the NCAA Division I National Championships. Hogan also spent four seasons as head coach of Oakland University in Rochester, MI where he lead the Grizzlies to two ACHA National Championships.

A national search will start immediately for Hogan’s replacement.
