STORRS, Conn. (AP) _ Connecticut men’s hockey coach Bruce
Marshall is taking an indefinite medical leave of absence from the
program.

The school declined Tuesday to comment on the nature of the
medical issue and said it would have no further comment on the
matter.

Assistant coach David Berard will take over the team until
Marshall returns.

Marshall is in his 25th season as UConn coach, leading the team
into Division I in 1998.

In June, the program accepted an invitation to become the 12th
member of Hockey East, the region’s top college hockey conference,
where it will begin play in 2014-15.
