UMD signs women’s hockey coach Crowell to contract extension

The University of Minnesota Duluth and women’s hockey head coach Maura Crowell have agreed to a four-year contract extension that will keep her behind the Bulldogs bench through the 2025-26 season.

“I would like to thank UMD Athletic Director Josh Berlo and UMD Chancellor Lendley Black for their continued confidence in my leadership of this elite hockey program,” said Crowell. “Everyone in our program is proud to call themselves Bulldogs and represent UMD both in the WCHA and NCAA. It is an honor to develop our young women into strong students, athletes, and community members through the game of hockey. I am eager to build on our successful Frozen Four run this past season and bring more trophies to Amsoil Arena.”

“We could not be more pleased to have Maura Crowell continue to lead our storied Bulldog women’s hockey program,” Berlo said. “This extension furthers the incredible leadership and mentorship for Bulldog women’s hockey by Coach Crowell and her staff. UMD women’s hockey has reestablished itself as one of the top programs in the country as evidenced with this year’s trip to the NCAA Frozen Four. She is a great leader, motivator, and mentor to the exceptional young women in our program. Off the ice, her team has excelled academically in the classroom.”
