HEAD COACH JIM WENDLING

In his first year as Canisius’ head coach, Wendling led Canisius to an 11-5-3 overall mark and a 6-3 conference record. In his second season, the Blue and Gold went 13-4-3 record and 4-3-2 MAAC action. The 13 wins in 2009 stood as the most for the program in one season until that mark was passed in 2010.

Jim WENDLING Head Coach Dayton ‘83

Jim Wendling is in his fifth season at the helm of the Canisius College women’s soccer program. In his three previous seasons on the Golden Griffins’ bench, Wendling has helped turn around the Blue and Gold, highlighted by the school’s first MAAC regular-season crown in 2010 thanks to a school-record 14 wins. In his four previous seasons at Canisius, Wendling has compiled 46 total wins, with 20 of those coming in MAAC action. The 2008 Anaconda Sports MAAC Coach of the Year, he is the first coach in school history to lead the Griffs to three-straight MAAC Championship Tournament appearances. In 2010, the Blue and Gold advanced to the MAAC Championship game for the second time in school history, and he helped guide a defensive unit that posted a single-season school record with eight shutout victories. The team posted an overall record of 8-7-4 in 2011, his fourth season with the Griffs. With a 3-3-3 record in MAAC play, the team finished sixth in the league standings. In 2011, former Griff Kelly Reinwald celebrated her four-year career with Wendling by becoming the all-time leader in both points (107) and assists (35). In addition, the Stafford, Va native earned her second CoSIDA/Capital One Academic AllAmerica Second Team selection for her success on the field and in the classroom.

Wendling was named the fifth women’s soccer coach in school history March 3, 2008. Before joining the Canisius team, he spent nine years as the men’s and women’s soccer head coach at Urbana University. During his tenure there, Wendling started both the men’s and women’s soccer programs and guided two student-athletes to All-America status. He also coached eight all-region players, two-conference freshman of the Year and 58 all-conference performers. Wendling led the women’s soccer team to 72 wins in seven years, recording a winning record in five of the seasons. The men’s team won 50 games in five years under his direction. Wendling’s teams have had as much success off the field as they have had on it. In the last eight years, Wendling has coached 31 Academic All-Americans plus 33 Academic AllOhio student-athletes and 18 MAAC All-Academic honorees. Urbana also received the NSCAA Team Academic Award for five-consecutive seasons. Canisius, under Wendling’s guidance, earned an NSCAA Team Academic Award in 2009. Before leading the Urbana soccer teams, Wendling spent three years with the Wittenberg women’s soccer program, including serving as head coach during the 1995 season. In his one year as head coach, Wendling led the Tigers to its most successful season in school history and a No. 7 national ranking. He coached two student-athletes to All-America honors plus the Division III National Player of the Year.

Department of Athletics What is a Griffin? The Griffin is a mythical creature of supposed gigantic size that has the head, forelegs and wings of an eagle and the hindquarters, tail and ears of a lion. They are well known for their speed, ability to fly and having eyes like an eagle as well as the strength and courage of a lion. Griffins have been known for centuries as symbols of strength and vigilance, have been called “The Hounds of Zeus” in Greek mythology and are said to have mastery of both the land and sky. They are thought to be from India, where the natives of the land made their talons and claws into drinking cups because the talon of a Griffin was said to detect poison in a liquid. Griffins would find gold in the mountains and line their nests with it and as a result, were forced to become great guardians of the nests to keep the hunters away. According to Charles A. Brady in Canisius College The First Hundred Years, “Though the problems of when and where the Griffin began his reign as King Herald of the Canisius College of Arms are not easily settled, the whence is simple to establish. Our Griffin flew to us from the prow of LaSalle’s lost Griffon, the Flying Dutchman of the Great Lakes, which disappeared after making a safe voyage from the Niagara River to the Strait of Detroit. LaSalle’s illfated caravel, the first ship ever built on America’s inland seas, with its 45 tons and five cannons, had its beakhead adorned ‘with a flying Griffin, and an eagle above it,’ in honor of the two heraldic beasts on the armorial bearing of the great Frontenac.” The Griffin became the symbol for Canisius athletics in the mid-1930s. Steve Weller wrote in The Buffalo News Jan. 22, 1962, “You can have your Chihuahuas, Piranhas, Horned Frogs and Iguanas. The best all-around athletic mascot in business today has to be the beast adopted by Canisius College – the Golden Griffin.”


2012 Canisius Female Athlete of the Year Megan Oosting earned MAAC Midfielder of the Year honors in addition to regional All-America accolades. Male Athlete of the Year Shawn Parkhurst repeated as the MAAC champion in the 1,000 freestyle, while setting seven school records.

Dr. Ellen Conley Vice President for Student Affairs Ellen O. Conley, PhD, a member of the Canisius Community since 1970, was named vice president for student affairs in 1998. One of her many accomplishments in her role as vice president includes spearheading the upgrade of the athletics program at the college. Dr. Conley earned a bachelor’s degree from Slippery Rock State College (1967), advanced education degrees from the University of Pittsburgh (1968) and Buffalo State (1973) and a doctorate in higher education from the University at Buffalo (1981). During her tenure as dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, Dr. Conley supported the formation of the School of Education and Human Services, developed a mentoring program for new faculty, initiated the development of majors in criminal justice and environmental science and guided the initiative to implement a Master of Science in Organizational Communication and Development. She also established the Fine Arts Department and facilitated the development of MusiCanisius, which has since evolved into the ArtsCanisius program.

While acting dean, she coordinated the promotion of the school’s graduate education program to the Canadian market and guided the implementation of the Master in Sport Administration. From 1987-89, Dr. Conley was the assistant director of athletics for women’s sports and financial aid, and from 1987-90, she was the athletic scholarship coordinator. Under her direction, the women’s athletic program was formed and grew from one club level team to seven varsity teams.

Bill Maher Director of Athletics Named Director of Athletics in May 2005, Bill Maher is in his eighth year back in the Blue and Gold. Under Maher’s watch, the Golden Griffins have enjoyed unprecedented success. In his seven seasons, Canisius teams have advanced to eight NCAA Tournaments in addition to a WNIT appearance in 2009, marking the most successful seven-year run in the school’s history. Most recently, the Canisius lacrosse programs enjoyed the most successful year in conference history with both the men’s and women’s teams winning MAAC Championships in 2012 and advancing to the NCAA Tournament. It marked the first time that one school swept both titles in the same season. In addition, the synchronized swimming team continued their dominance during the 2011-12 season, winning the program’s 15th-straight ECAC Championship. Overall, the 17 Canisius squads have accumulated 29 conference or regional championships under Maher’s leadership, with a number of teams producing the best seasons in program history. The Canisius campus has also undergone a number of renovations, including upgrades to the Demske Sports Complex and Koessler Athletic Center. During the past seven seasons, 34 student-athletes have won conference player or rookie of the year awards, including six in each of the past two seasons. Prior to Maher’s arrival, Canisius won 24 player or rookie of the year awards in the previous 10 seasons combined. The achievements of Griffs go past graduation as well. Under Maher’s watch, 13 players have been drafted professionally. In 2011, Canisius was the only school in the country with two first-round selections in the National Lacrosse League Draft. In addition, former Griff John Axford pitches with the Milwaukee Brewers, while two hockey graduates have signed NHL contracts. To go along with the school’s success on a team and individual level, Canisius has controlled the Battle of the Bridge series with local rival Niagara University. In four of the last five campaigns, the Griffs have claimed the Canal Cup, which is an all-sports competition between the two neighboring schools. On an academic level during Maher’s tenure, Canisius has had 21 student-athletes recognized on the district level as Capital One CoSIDA All-Academic selections, including seven Capital One Academic All-Americans during the last three years. Maher has overseen numerous renovations to the Koessler Athletic Center and the Demske Sports Complex. A new Center for Athletic Training opened in May 2007. New locker rooms were constructed for all female teams and finished in

2008, while the men and women’s basketball teams each received new locker rooms in the summer of 2008. The Demske Sports Complex received a $1.7 million facelift with the installation of new A-Turf as well as new scoreboards in 2008. New offices for head coaches and their assistants along with new locker rooms for all of the men’s teams were constructed in 2010. GoGriffs.com, the official web site of Canisius athletics, has undergone two redesigns under Maher. The department has also developed a video webstreaming package for all home events in seven sports (men’s and women’s soccer, volleyball, men’s and women’s basketball and men’s and women’s lacrosse) and is a part of the MAAC.TV package. Maher is the MAAC’s representative to the NCAA Legislative Council, which has one representative from each of the 31 Division I conferences. He chairs the MAAC men’s lacrosse committee and is also a member of the MAAC Technology Committee. Canisius has hosted eight MAAC Championships since 2005 and will also be hosting the 2013 Swimming and Diving Championships and the 2013 Women’s Lacrosse Championship. A Canisius graduate and former assistant athletic director at the school, Maher spent seven years at the University at Buffalo and served as the Bulls’ interim athletic director from 2003-05. During his tenure as the interim athletic director at Buffalo, Maher helped UB Athletics oversee $3.6 million in capital improvements to its athletic facilities, restructure the school’s Blue & White Club fund drive for athletics, which generated $1 million during the 2003-04 season, and develop marketing campaigns which increased attendance at athletic events. He also oversaw the development of the men’s basketball program, which set a school record for victories and earned the first postseason bid in school history with an invitation to the 2005 National Invitation Tournament. Under his watch, the Bulls’ RPI increased from 284 in 2003 to as high as 34 during the 2004-05 season. Maher was a four-year letterwinner on the Canisius College football team from 1985-88 and earned All-America honorable mention honors as a senior. He received his bachelor’s degree in physical education from Canisius in 1989 and his master’s degree in sport management from East Stroudsburg University in 1990. Following an internship with the New York Knicks, Maher returned to Canisius in 1991, becoming the assistant athletic director for compliance in 1994. He became the director of compliance at the University at Buffalo in 1998, where he moved up the ranks and was named senior associate athletic director in 2002. In that role, he managed the day-to-day operations of the Division of Athletics, including the direct supervision of Buffalo’s football and men’s and women’s basketball programs, in addition to the office of compliance and the office of student-athlete services.
