Rohlik Made Permanent at Ohio State

Interim head coach Steve Rohlik has been given the permanent job of head men's hockey coach at Ohio State University. Rohlik succeeds Mark Osiecki, who was let go by OSU earlier this month.

Rohlik, who has served as OSU's associate head coach the past three seasons, is a former Wisconsin skater who won an NCAA title with the Badgers in 1990. A native of St. Paul, Minn., he enters his first head coaching stint after assistant positions at Nebraska-Omaha and Minnesota-Duluth. He served 10 years with the Bulldogs before coming to Columbus in 2010.

Ohio State, which made it to this year's CCHA semifinals in Detroit in the last year of the league, will enter the nascent Big Ten Conference in the fall. The Buckeyes are also seeking their first trip to the NCAA Tournament since 2009, when they lost to eventual national champion Boston University in a regional semifinal.
