Women’s ice hockey and men’s basketball have new head coaches, announced Harry Sheehy, Dartmouth’s director of athletics and recreation.

On Monday, Sheehy named David McLaughlin, associate head coach and recruiting coordinator of men’s basketball at Northeastern University, the new Big Green men’s basketball coach. And last week Laura Schuler, head coach of the Canadian national women’s hockey team, was named head coach of Dartmouth’s women’s ice hockey team.

They join two other recently named coaches: James Holder, who comes to Dartmouth from Georgetown to lead women’s and men’s swimming and diving; and Gilad Doron, the new volleyball coach, who comes to Hanover from the University of San Francisco.

“I am extremely honored and excited to be a part of the Dartmouth athletics family,” says Schuler. “Dartmouth women’s hockey has had a strong tradition of excellence on the ice, in the classroom, and within the community, and I am excited to continue to build on that excellence.”

Says Sheehy, “I am incredibly excited to have Laura take over the reins of the Dartmouth women’s hockey team. She brings a rich background, from a world-class playing experience to assistant and head coaching at the collegiate and international levels.”

Sheehy says McLaughlin has “a wealth of experience along with great passion for the game. He is a strong tactician with a terrific history of developing players. I could not be more excited looking to the future for Dartmouth men’s basketball.”

“The opportunity to work at an elite institution with tremendous student-athletes has always been a goal,” says McLaughlin. “The Dartmouth community provides its athletes this type of unique academic and athletic experience.”
