(WTNH)–She’s been a fixture in Connecticut sports for more than 40 years, and now, University of New Haven athletic director Debbie Chin is calling it a career.

The school announced Monday that Chin will retire on February 15th. It’s been quite a run. She helped bring football back to New Haven in 2009, and over her time at UNH, Chin has been a driving force in the advancement of women’s college sports.

Chin won almost 600 games as the school’s volleyball coach. She’s done a little bit of it all for the Chargers.

Now, she’ll enjoy a long-overdue vacation. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
