Hockey coach Dave Shyiak is parting ways with the Seawolves.

In a statement released Friday, the athletics department confirmed a search committee has been appointed and is considering national applicants to fill the position.

Dallas Baldwin, assistant sports information director, said she does not know who is on the committee or who appointed it.

She confirmed Shyiak had three years left in his five-year contract with UAA. He was hired in 2005.

Baldwin also said the department is not officially stating whether Shyiak has been fired or resigned from the position. The department also did not confirm whether he is slated to receive a buyout or severance package.

“That will be an ongoing process to figure that out,” she said.

Shyiak’s record for the past eight seasons is 80-177-33 (0.333).
