Dave Smith Receives Contract Extension - Canisius College Athletics - GoGriffs.com - Wednesday, May 29.
After leading the Canisius College hockey team to its most successful season in school history, Dave Smith has signed a contract extension that will keep him as head coach of the program through the 2016-17 season, announced by Director of Athletics Bill Maher on Wednesday.
Smith is set to enter his ninth season in charge of the Golden Griffin program after leading Canisius to its first conference championship during the 2012-13 campaign.
Smith has continued to lead the Golden Griffin program to new heights as head coach. During the 2012-13 campaign, Canisius won its first Atlantic Hockey title with a 7-2 win over Mercyhurst, advancing to the NCAA East Regional Semifinal. The Griffs also finished the season ranked 19th in the final USCHO.com Division I poll, the program’s highest placement in the national rankings.
LS: Congrats to Dave Smith on the extension! Also congrats to another Griffs coach - Mike McRae and the Canisius College Baseball team on winning the MAAC title this past weekend. Good luck in the regionals this coming weekend in Chapel Hill, North Carolina! Beat those Tar Heels!
(If you want to watch - ESPN3.com is supposed to have all the games from that regional with Canisius first game - against #1 North Carolina - scheduled for 6:00 pm ET on Friday evening. Go Griffs!)
