Googins Back at Helm of Boys Hockey

Whitman- Whitman-Hanson Regional High School is pleased to announce the hiring of Chris Googins as the new boys ice hockey coach.  Googins, who serves as Dean of Students and history teacher at Whitman-Hanson, returns for his second stint as head coach with the Panthers.  He led Whitman-Hanson from 1997 to 2003 before stepping down to assume the head coaching post at Framingham State College where he led that club to two consecutive playoff appearances.  While at Whitman-Hanson, Googins led the Panthers to four straight tournament berths including a spot in the sectional finals in 2002. 

“I’m very excited to return to Whitman-Hanson and coach hockey. I hope to continue the pride and tradition of Panther Hockey,” Googins said.  “My expectations for student-athletes are pretty simple, if you work hard in the classroom and in the off-season there will be a spot for you in this program”

Googins, who is his first year as boys tennis coach at WH, replaces Joe Bina who stepped down at the end of the season.  “We thank Joe for all of his hard work over the last four years and wish him the best as he turns his attention to being a dad and watching his kids play in college,” Whitman-Hanson Athletic Director Bob Rodgers said.  “I am so excited for our kids and our program to have a coach like Chris Googins.  His track record in hockey speaks for itself but beyond the ice he is a lifelong educator and truly understands the concept of educational athletics.”

Googins also served as head coach of the Whitman-Hanson girl’s hockey program (at the time a co-op with Pembroke) from 2007-2010.  In 2009 he led the team to the Boston Garden and a spot in the Division 2 State Finals.  From 2011-2015 he was an assistant for the Braintree boy’s hockey team which made it to the Division 1 State Finals in 2014.  “One of my goals is to field a team that competes for three periods and is disciplined in all facets of the game.  Also, it’s important to me to work with the local youth groups to help make the transition to high school easier both academically and athletically,” Googins said.


The boys hockey team, which finished 6-11-4 this past season, competes in the Keenan Division of the Patriot League and will begin tryouts for the 2016/2017 season on Monday November 28th.
