Kevin Cole Named Men’s Club Ice Hockey Coach

HAMMOND, Ind. & WESTVILLE, Ind. – Purdue University Northwest Athletics announced the appointment of Kevin Cole as the inaugural Head Men’s Club Ice Hockey Coach. 

“I am excited to welcome Kevin as the Pride’s first Head Coach of the Men’s Club Ice Hockey program,” said Rick Costello, PNW Director of Athletics. “Kevin has the background, energy and enthusiasm to develop an outstanding Ice Hockey program. Kevin’s familiarity with recruiting outstanding student-athletes and building a program at Trine University will be a huge asset as we create a first class ice hockey program at PNW.”

Cole spent the last two seasons with Trine University as its head coach of the American Collegiate Hockey Association Division III men’s hockey team.

He led the Thunder to a 27-26-3 record the past two seasons and a final regional ranking of #13 in each season. 

“I am extremely humbled and honored to be the first ice hockey head coach at Purdue University Northwest,” head coach Kevin Cole said. “I would like to thank Rick Costello and everyone at PNW for the opportunity to start this new program. I am excited to get started and for the future of PNW hockey.” 

The Pride will begin its first season in the Fall of 2019, as they will compete in the ACHA Division II conference.
