High School Hockey: Notre Dame-Fairfield coach Marty Roos steps down
A press release from Notre Dame-Fairfield athletic director Rob Bleggi confirmed Roos has stepped down effective immediately. Assistant coach Steve Hetherman will be the new coach. Calls to Hetherman’s cell phone were not returned.
Roos has coached for 41 years, first with Fairfield Prep, and he then took over ...for the Lancers in the 1991-92 season. At age 75 he owns the record for most wins by a Connecticut high school coach with a 536-301-19 career record. He has won six state titles.
"I always felt that when it came time to step down from coaching I would know that it was time," Roos said in the Lancers' press release. "Even though Notre Dame is mid-season, I believe that now is the right time."
Notre Dame-Fairfield will face No. 4 Hamden today at the Milford Ice Pavilion at 6 p.m.
The story was first reported on Twitter by @FairfieldConnSports and later confirmed by a report in the Fairfield Citizen.
