Castleton, Vt. – Alex Todd, Castleton head men's ice hockey coach, has resigned to take an assistant coaching position at Division I University of Omaha at Nebraska, as announced by Deanna Tyson, associate dean for athletics and recreation. A search for his successor will begin immediately.
"I would like to wish Alex the best as he pursues this next opportunity in his career," said Tyson. "In eight seasons he brought the program to a level of national prominence, but more importantly helped educate countless young men of high character, of whom the entire college can be proud."
Todd went 114-78-21 over his eight seasons at Castleton, including at least 15 wins in each of the past three seasons. His teams reached the ECAC East Semifinals three times and the Finals once. They also reached as high No. 3 in the USCHO.com national poll on multiple occasions. Todd produced three ACHA All-Americans, one ECAC East Player of the Year and had numerous graduates go on to play professionally.
Off the ice Todd's teams won the Castleton President's Trophy for academic excellence amongst winter teams multiple times and he had a pair of players earn CoSIDA Academic All-America honors this past year.
