DENVER - George Gwozdecky has resigned as the Denver men's hockey coach, according to the school.

The school announced his resignation Monday. Gwozdecky has been the Denver coach for the past 19 seasons.

The Pioneers recently finished their final season in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association (WCHA). Gwozdecky compiled a 443-267-64 record with DU (593-391-85 career), finishing the 2012-13 season 20-14-5 with a conference record of 14-9-5.

"We certainly wish George the best in his future endeavors and we are thankful for his 19 years at the helm of our hockey program," said Vice Chancellor for Athletics and Recreation Peg Bradley-Doppes. "He certainly had his fair share of success, returning the program to the pinnacle of the collegiate hockey world during our great run in the middle of the previous decade. In addition, he has always run our program with class and professionalism, which has certainly made our fans proud to be Pioneer supporters.

"We must now turn our attention toward a new direction for our hockey program with another innovative coach taking the lead for our inaugural season in the newly formed National Collegiate Hockey Conference."
