North Andover native named new hockey coach at UConn

The University of Connecticut has named North Andover native and Boston College assistant coach Mike Cavanaugh, who helped guide the Eagles to four national championships, as its head men’s hockey coach.

The 45-year-old replaces Bruce Marshall, who took a medical leave of absence in November and resigned in January after 25 years at Connecticut.

Cavanaugh starred for North Andover High in both football and hockey, later playing both sports at Bowdoin College.

Cavanaugh takes over UConn program that is making the transition from a non-scholarship program in the Atlantic Hockey conference, to one of the nation’s top hockey conferences, Hockey East.

Cavanaugh, who spent 18 seasons at Boston College, got the job over two other finalists; David Berard, who led the Huskies to a winning season as their interim coach, and former Denver coach George Gwozdecky, who won two NCAA titles in 19 years with the Pioneers.

We will have more on Cavanaugh, who played football for his father, Mike Cavanaugh Sr., in tomorrow's Eagle-Tribune.
