Rich Hasenfus, formerly of Norwich University, has been named head coach at Williams College. He replaces Dan DiCenzo, who left to coach football at Wesleyan. Hasenfus was the head coach at Norwich for 13 seasons. Over the past two years, he has spearheaded a fundraising effort that saved the Norwich team after the school announced it was dropping the program. In his time at Norwich, he coached 15 NCAA qualifiers and two All-Americans. He inherits a team with two returning All-Americans in Ryan Malo and Corey Paulish that recorded the program’s first ever 20 win season in 2009-2010.
Prior to his time at Norwich, Hasenfus was the head coach at Wesleyan for three seasons after spending some time as an assistant at Harvard. Click below to see the full Williams release.
Also of note is the following: this is the first time a Division III head coach has left to become the head coach at another Division III school since d3wrestle.com started tracking coaching changes in 2007.
