OU HOCKEY COACH STEPS DOWN

The OU Hockey Club, a Registered Student Organization at the University of Oklahoma, announces that Peter Arvanitis has stepped down from his duties as Head Coach and General Manager to pursue other opportunities.

"I would like to thank my wife and family for their great support in being there for me every step of the way. Without their support, this great experience would not have been possible. I would also like to thank Larry Donovan, Chris Perry, and the Miller family for giving me the opportunity to be a first time Head Coach 7 years ago. I appreciate the confidence they had in me and also the opportunity they gave me to enjoy this great experience. OU is a great academic institution with a very competitive hockey program and I know that its success will continue".

Peter just completed his seventh full season as head coach. He accumulated a record of 159 wins, 76 losses, 27 overtime/shootout losses, for a winning percentage of .658. All of Peter's teams were ranked in the top 20 and as high as number 2. Peter is also the winningest hockey coach in OU history.

The OU Hockey Club would like to thank Peter for all of his hard work and dedication to the organization over the past seven seasons and wish Peter and his family all the best in the future.
