Head coach Guy Gadowsky will join the Coaches Caravan May 9.

April 23, 2013

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. - Head men's hockey coach Guy Gadowsky will join the 2013 Penn State Coaches Caravan Thursday, May 9 during stops in Pittsburgh and Penn State DuBois.

Building on Penn State's "One Team" inaugural year momentum, highlighting the highly successful first season under football coach Bill O'Brien and looking ahead to 2013, the Penn State Coaches Caravan tour begins another road trip April 30 with visits to 12 locations during two weeks this spring.

Joining Gadowsky and O'Brien at the May 9 events will be head men's volleyball coach Mark Pavlik. At each Coaches Caravan stop, Penn State alumni and fans will have the opportunity to hear from Coach O'Brien and at least one other head coach and ask questions about the Nittany Lions' nationally recognized 31-sport athletic program at a lunch or evening event.

O'Brien will headline the bus tour of many Penn State alumni strongholds across Pennsylvania and the Mid-Atlantic. The 2012 Bear Bryant and Maxwell Football Club national Coach of the Year will participate in all 12 Coaches Caravan stops and will be joined by other head coaches at each event. The April 30 event in Reading and the May 7 stop in Williamsport are sold out.

Jointly sponsored by the Penn State Alumni Association and the Nittany Lion Club, Coaches Caravan registration is underway at www.alumni.psu.edu/coachescaravan and www.GoPSUsports.com. More than 3,000 Penn State alumni and fans have signed up for Caravan stops. Advance registration is required for all Coaches Caravan events.

In 2012-13, Gadowsky led the Nittany Lions to a 13-14-0 record during their inaugural NCAA Division I season. The bench boss guided Penn State to several marquee victories, including wins against future Big Ten foes Michigan State, Ohio State and Wisconsin. The Nittany Lions also defeated Vermont, 4-2, at Philadelphia's Wells Fargo Center in front of 19,529 fans, the most to watch a college hockey game in an NHL arena.

 

 

The Nittany Lions, who competed as an independent in 2012-13, will join the Big Ten for the conference's first season of play in 2013-14. The 2013-14 season also coincides with the opening of Pegula Ice Arena, which will serve as the home of Penn State Hockey. Season tickets deposits are currently being accepted and deposits can be placed at 1-800-NITTANY.
