Former Michigan State hockey coach Ron Mason, who was the winningest coach in college hockey when he retired in 2002, died Monday at the age of 76.
Over 36 seasons, Mason won 924 games between Lake Superior State, Bowling Green and Michigan State. In 1986, Mason won a National Championship with the Spartans. This mark stood until Boston College’s Jerry York eclipsed Mason’s total in 2012.
Mason led Michigan State to the NCAA tournament 19 times in 23 seasons.
Mason served as Michigan State’s Athletics Director from 2002-08. The Spartans’ hockey team won the National Championship in 2007.Read More »from Legendary Michigan State coach Ron Mason dies at 76
