Katey Stone will be the coach of the U.S. women's team in the 2014 Sochi Olympics in Russia.
She has coach Harvard for 18 years and her 378 victories is the most for an active Division I women's college hockey coach.
Stone will be the national team's coach for the 2013 IIHF World Championships in Ottawa, Ontario.
"Katey knows what it takes to build gold-medal teams," said Ron DeGregorio, president of USA Hockey, in a news release from his organization. "We're very excited to have her continue to lead our U.S. women's national team up to and through the 2014 Olympic Winter Games."
