CHN Staff Report

AMHERST, Mass. — Massachusetts coach Greg Carvel has had his contract extended through the 2025-26 season. Named College Hockey News’ Coach of the Year in 2020-21, he led the Minutemen to their first Hockey East tournament and NCAA Tournament championships.

“We are very pleased to grow our investment in Greg Carvel and the national championship hockey program he has built in Amherst,” UMass athletic director Ryan Bamford. “Coach Carvel’s outstanding leadership has produced remarkable results in the classroom, in competition and in the community. This new contract affirms our strong commitment to keep Greg and his family in maroon and white for years to come. Under Greg’s continued charge, we believe our nationally renowned program will remain a significant point of pride on campus and around the Commonwealth.”

Said Carvel. “I have tremendous pride in the accomplishments of our hockey team over the past five years and I look forward to the continual elevation of our program over the life of this contract. I came to UMass because I believed the leadership and resources were in place to continually achieve national success. UMass has been a great fit for me and my family is excited that this contract will allow us to call Amherst our home for many years to come.”

The new contract will automatically add an additional year to the agreement on April 11 of each contract year, unless Carvel is provided notice by the university. It includes a substantially increased annual compensation package, salary increases based on team performance, new or increased academic and competitive performance bonuses and a new supplemental retirement contribution plan.

There is one change in the coaching staff — top assistant Ben Barr was recently named head coach at Maine. Carvel brought in Matt Lindsay from Penn State to replace Barr.

“It’s imperative that I thank my outstanding staff, as well as the many extraordinary young men who have made the sacrifices off of the ice and won the battles on the ice that ultimately earned a National Championship,” Carvel said. “I feel genuinely grateful for all of this and am honored to serve our university and it’s exceptional student-athletes.”
