The University of Denver Website and the Denver Post reported that University of Denver Hockey Coach George Gwozdecky is resigning effective immediately. The Denver Post edited their original article to say that Gwozdecky was fired. Multiple University of Denver sources informed LetsGoDU that a buyout of the final year of his contract has been in the works.
Gwozdecky is one of the greatest coaches in college hockey and his turnaround of the DU hockey program at the University of Denver was a monumental performance. In 19 seasons at DU, he failed to win 20 games only three times.
DU's two National Championship in 2004 and 2005 ended a 34 year drought that had seen the program sink to a constant WCHA cellar dweller before his arrival on campus.
Gwozdecky will address the media in a press conference on Tuesday at 11 AM MT in the Champions Room.
