Burke Named Acting RPI Women's Ice Hockey Coach
SKNandy writes, "John Burke has been named acting head coach for the Rensselaer women's ice hockey team. Burke had served as assistant coach for the Rensselaer men's ice hockey team for the past 8 years. He replaces the late Bill Cahill, who died suddenly after a heart attack on October 5."
"Burke is happy to be named to the position. In an article on the Rensselaer Athletics website announcing his appointment, he said":
I am honored to have the opportunity to take over the women’s program. Bill was a man I really enjoyed being around and learned a lot from, not just in hockey but in life. I look forward to building on the foundation and tradition he established. It remains our goal to make Rensselaer one of the top women’s hockey programs in the country.
"The RPI women's hockey team opens their season this Saturday night with a contest at Union College."
