Holy Cross has agreed to a contract extension with coach David Berard that takes him through the 2022 season. Berard is entering his fifth year at the helm of the Crusaders.
“We are encouraged by the steady progress of our men’s hockey program under David’s leadership,” athletic director Nathan Pine said. “He has been an impactful mentor, a strong motivator and a tremendous resource for our student-athletes during his time at Holy Cross. We look forward to continued success and league championships to come under his direction.”
In his time at Holy Cross, Berard has led the Crusaders to a 59-62-24 record and a 51-38-23 mark in Atlantic Hockey. Berard has reached the league quarterfinals three straight years.
“I am honored to receive the contract extension to continue as the head coach of the men’s hockey program,” said Berard. “I want to give special thanks and gratitude to Nathan Pine for his steadfast belief in me and the program. I would also like to thank our coaching staff, support staff and players from the past four years. This is a recognition of quality work done by a number of outstanding people.”
