Lang Resigns as Head Men's Hockey and Women's Golf Coach (http://www.govaliants.com/news/2012/6/19/MHOCKEY_0619120152.aspx)

PURCHASE, N.Y. Ė Following four years with both the Manhattanville men's and women's hockey programs, Eric Lang has stepped down from his positions as head coach of the Manhattanville men's hockey and women's golf teams to pursue other opportunities, Manhattanville Athletic Director Keith Levinthal announced on Monday.

"I would like to thank Keith and the Manhattanville community for a wonderful four years," Lang said. "I have a unique opportunity to stay in college hockey while pursuing a business opportunity, but it was a tough decision because Manhattanville has been so good to me and my family. I wish the Valiants the best of luck next season."

In his one year with the men's hockey program, Lang took over the team as just the second coach in program history and guided the Valiants to a 13-9-3 record Ė including a 6-3-1 mark against nationally ranked opposition Ė and a second-place regular-season finish in the ultra-competitive ECAC West Conference. Under his direction, a program-record five players earned year-end ECAC West honors.

Prior to that, Lang guided the Valiant women's hockey team for three seasons, leading the squad to its eighth ECAC East Conference tournament championship and NCAA Tournament appearance in his final season of 2010-11. In three seasons with the women, he posted a 58-22-3 (.717) record and boasted two All-American selections, one ECAC East Player of the Year and 14 All-Conference honorees.

Lang was also named the first head women's golf coach in program history in August and was scheduled to begin the program's first year on the varsity level in 2012-13.

According to Levinthal, the department will begin a national search for both men's hockey and women's golf head coaching positions immediately.

Caught the same virus as former Norwich coach, Don "Toot" Cahoon (http://www.umassathletics.com/sports/m-hockey/spec-rel/061912aaa.html).

Best of luck to Coach Lang. He's a great coach. Had great success with the women's team and when he came to the men's team, he guided the Valiants to a second place finish after finishing last in the conference the previous year. I wish him nothing but success.

Didnít realize he coached both menís and womenís team. The logistics seem impossible but wow thatís a lot of time on the ice. These guys donít make much money but spends a lot of time at the rink or in the campus office.
I can understand when coaches resign, plus he is doing it on his terms vs. being fired.
I interviewed to be an asst coach for a DIII program but the pay cut made it impossible for me to even pursue the opportunity. The dedication that coaches have at the DIII level is amazing

He coached for the women's team for three years, then went to the men's team. He didn't coach both teams at the same time. I do strongly agree with you about a Division III coach's dedication, ballgame. :)

I can't remember his name, but the famous coach of the North Carolina women's soccer team did coach both the men's and women's teams at the same time very early in his career.

Who are or should be the front runners for this job? Same question about Curry?

Do they have the same season? ie. both Fall sports or both Spring sports?

NCAA soccer I believe has been a fall sport for both men and women for as far back as I can remember.

Exact same seasons. Exact same time. He at times had games back-to-back.

This was one of the key reasons why he came up with his viewpoints on the differences coaching men and women.

I think that's a very common trait for swimming and diving teams at the Division III level.

Norwich is the same way.

Norwich is the same way.

Often also for track and field (which NU gave up on, much to my chagrin years ago) and cross country.

what are the chances that Curry and M'Ville just switch coaches it seems NCAA hockey recycles a lot of coaches?

Any one hear anything on Manhattanville, Nichols, and Curry program. Not a lot of movement in coaching jobs this year so you would think a lot of people would be putting in for jobs. Especially Manhattanville and Curry.

Are you saying that the former Curry Coach might head to Manhattanville?

That would be interesting. Wouldn't shock me if it happened.
