COLORADO SPRINGS - After 15 years behind the bench, Scott Owens has resigned as the head coach of the Colorado College hockey team.
According to the CC website, Owens and Athletics Director Ken Ralph agreed upon conclusion of their annual post-season review that it was time for Owens to step down.
In Owens' 15-year career he had a record of 324-228-54.
During that time with the Tigers he claimed three regular-season championships in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association and earned seven appearances in the NCAA tournament, including a trip to the Frozen Four in 2005 and a return to the quarterfinals in 2011.
Despite his overall winning record and playoff appearances it was likely a rough final year that did him in. This year he posted a record of 7-24-6.
Colorado College will immediately initiate a national search for its next head hockey coach.
We'll have much more on this developing story coming up tonight on NEWS 5 at 5:30 and 10:00.
