Kevin White announced on Friday that Beth Bozman, the school’s head field hockey coach since 2003, has resigned.DURHAM, N.C. – Duke University Vice President and Director of Athletics
In eight seasons at Duke, Bozman compiled an overall record of 115-56 (.673) with an ACC ledger of 13-25 (.342). In 2010, the Blue Devils went 8-11 overall and 0-5 in conference action. After securing NCAA Tournament berths in each of Bozman’s first six seasons, Duke failed to advance to postseason play the past two years.
“I think it's time for a change here at Duke and for myself,” Bozman said. “I've had eight great years here and to be able to compete in the ACC with the nation's best has been a genuine thrill. I will miss the competition and the great players and people that I've had the opportunity to work with here."
In her 24 years as a head coach at Hofstra (1987), Princeton (1988-02) and Duke (2003-10), Bozman has posted a career record of 318-133 (.705) with 14 NCAA Tournament appearances.
Associate head coach Jarred Martin and assistant coach Caitlin Williams will remain on the Duke staff until Bozman’s successor is hired. A national search for a head coach will begin immediately.
