STORRS, Conn. (AP) — Connecticut men's hockey coach Bruce Marshall is taking an indefinite medical leave of absence from the program.
The school declined Tuesday to comment on the nature of the medical issue and said it would have no further comment on the matter.
Assistant coach David Berard will take over the team until Marshall returns.
Marshall is in his 25th season as UConn coach, leading the team into Division I in 1998.
In June, the program accepted an invitation to become the 12th member of Hockey East, the region's top college hockey conference, where it will begin play in 2014-15.
