Aug. 8, 2017
University of Denver Director of Hockey Operations David Tenzer has announced that he has resigned his post with the program in order to pursue other opportunities and spend more time with his family.
“It’s been an unbelievable 16 years here at Denver but my family and I have made the decision that it’s time for me to move on,” says Tenzer. “I’d like to thank George Gwozdecky and Jim Montgomery for the opportunity to work at a great school with a tremendous hockey program and I wish the Pioneers all the best this coming season and beyond. I’ve made countless lifelong friends and worked with some truly amazing individuals during my time at DU and will always cherish having had the opportunity to be a Pioneer.”
Tenzer first joined the DU Hockey program in 2001; during his tenure, the Pioneers amassed 402 victories, won three national championships and captured four conference playoff titles in addition to four conference regular season titles. Denver won at least 20 games in all 16 of Tenzer’s seasons with the program.
“David is a first-class individual who has been an invaluable part of this program for 16 years and will be greatly missed,” says DU head coach Jim Montgomery. “He’s well-respected throughout the college hockey world and has been a major reason for the Pioneers’ success in the new millennium. We wish him and his family all the best in their future endeavors.”
