    PROVIDENCE, R.I. -

    Providence College men’s hockey assistant coach Jamie Russell has resigned to pursue other opportunities in hockey, it was announced today (April 23).

    “We’re very appreciative of Coach Russell’s efforts over the past three years and wish him best of luck moving forward,” Head Coach Nate Leaman said.

    "I truly enjoyed my time at Providence College and couldn't be prouder of these men and the foundation we have built for the future,” Russell said. “I am excited for a new challenge and I wish nothing but the best for the Friars."

    This past season, the Friars returned to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2001 and posted their first NCAA Tournament win since 1991, a 4-0 first round blanking of Quinnipiac (March 28). Providence also made a third consecutive Hockey East Semifinal appearance for the first time in program history.
