Union women’s coach Claudia Asano Barcomb will not be returning next year, the school announced Friday.

Barcomb has served as the head coach of the Dutchwomen since the 2007-08 season.

A national search for the next coach will commence immediately.

“We thank Claudia for her efforts and work with the student-athletes both on and off the ice and wish her all the best in her future endeavors,” said Union director of athletics Jim McLaughlin in a statement. “Claudia brought many positive attributes to the program and the campus community, as well as the student-athletes under her guidance.”

“I would like to thank the many dedicated players that I have had the privilege of coaching through these nine years at Union College,” added Barcomb. “I would also like to thank my family, my staff, and the Union College community who have supported our program throughout the years.”

Over the course of her tenure at Union, Barcomb fashioned a record of 36-236-32, including an 0-28-6 mark in 2015-16.
