Washington Capitals assistant coach Reid Cashman has landed Dartmouth College’s vacant head coaching job. Cashman will remain with the Capitals until the conclusion of the 2019-20 season.
Longtime head coach Bob Gaudet, 61, announced his sudden retirement in April after spending 23 years behind the bench. Gaudet, who wants to help care for his 90-year-old father and 88-year-old mother in Massachusetts, won a school-record 331 games and is one of seven college coaches to reach 1,000 games.
News first circulated in the morning when ESPN’s John Buccigross reported that Cashman was the “favorite” to get the job earlier in the day.
