MYH wishes to congratulate girls U12 A/B coach on his appointment to head coach at Catholic Memorial.
From Aug 13th Boston Hearld:
Catholic Memorial will name Mark Cornforth as its new hockey coach, according to multiple sources.
The 42-year-old Cornforth played four seasons at Merrimack College and also had a six-game stint with the Bruins in 1995-96 as part of a six-year minor league career. This will be the first high school coaching job for the native of Montreal, who has previously been a member of the Boston Junior Terriers staff.
Cornforth faces the difficult challenge of replacing one of the biggest legends in high school hockey coaching. Bill Hanson, who led the Knights to prominence over a 38-year career, was informed by Catholic Memorial in May that he would not be returning for the 2015-16 season.
According to multiple sources, the other finalist for the job was former Boston University star Jon Coleman, son of former longtime Boston Latin coach Dave Coleman.
In taking over the Knights, Cornforth faces the sizeable challenge of following in the footsteps of Hanson, whose 608 career victories are the third-most in MIAA hockey history, behind only the late Ed Burns of Arlington and former Matignon coach Marty Pierce. Catholic Memorial was the most decorated program in Mass. high school hockey in Hanson's 38 seasons, winning 17 state championships -- including 13 in the prestigious Super Eight tournament.
However, CM also is coming off a 6-10-4 record in 2014-15, its worst in more than 30 years as it missed the postseason for the third time in five seasons. The Knights' last championship season was 2008-09, although they did reach the Super Eight semifinals in 2013 and also qualified in 2014. CM also won 20 Catholic Conference championships in Hanson's tenure, the last coming in 2009-10.
