Hoosiers Announce Rich Gordon is new Head Coach
By: Alexandra Keller
The Hoosiers are pleased to announce that Rich Gordon will act as the Indiana University Division 3 Hockey Team’s next head coach.
Coach Gordon is moving up to the collegiate level after acting as the head coach of Indiana powerhouse, Columbus High School. Gordon recently wrapped up the 2013-2014 season by leading the Columbus team to nationals after claiming State Runner-up. Coach Gordon has a very solid seven-year coaching record of 198-111-29. In addition, Gordon has taken his players to four Indiana state championship appearances, including winning the title in 2008.
The Hoosier’s believe Coach Gordon will make an excellent addition to the program not only because of his ability to lead his players to victory, but because Gordon played for the Hoosiers during their 1994-1996 seasons. When asked about his feelings towards the contributions Coach Gordon will make to the Hoosiers in the coming season, IU Hockey President Cody Reiff commented, “I think Coach Gordon will bring a lot to our program. He's shown in the past that he knows how to bring a group together and make them a winning team, and I think he'll be able to do that here next season.”
The Hoosiers hope that in the future, Coach Gordon will lead them to win the ICHC state regionals and onward. They believe his spirit for Indiana University hockey and his coaching ability will help them to achieve their goals.
