Rand Pecknold (born February 4, 1967) is an American ice hockey coach. He is currently the head coach of the Quinnipiac Bobcats men's ice hockey team.[1] He took over the program at Quinnipiac in 1994 and led the transition from Division 2 to Division 1. Since moving to Division 1 in the 1998–1999 season he has led the Bobcats to 17 consecutive winning seasons the longest stretch after Michigan's streak of 25 years was broken in the 2012–13 season. In the 19th season behind the bench he led the Bobcats to the 2013 Frozen Four where they lost the National Championship to archrival Yale. In the 2014–2015 season Coach Rand Pecknold reached 400 career wins, making him the 33rd D1 Head Coach to reach such a feat. Rand Pecknold once again led the Bobcats to the Frozen Four in 2015-16 where they fell in the National Championship to North Dakota 5-1.
