Having just completed his 27th season behind the Plattsburgh State bench with the 2015-16 campaign, Bob Emery has established himself as one of the nation's top head coaches in all of NCAA college men's ice hockey. His resume speaks for itself: two national championships, 17 NCAA tournament appearances including nine trips to the Division III semifinals, 15 State University of New York Athletic Conference championships and 19 All-Americans. Emery's 562-177-59 career record makes him the winningest coach in the program's storied history, and his .741 winning percentage ranks in the Top 5 all-time in the NCAA. He ranks third among Division III active coaches with 562 victories.

Emery was named the SUNYAC Coach of the Year for the fourth time in 2004 after the Cardinals won the conference championship, when they went 23-5-3 in NCAA play, 12-0-2 for first place in the SUNYAC, defeated Oswego 2-games-tonone in the conference tournament series and reached the NCAA semifinal round. He led Plattsburgh to three titles in 2010-11: PrimeLink Great Northern ShootOut, Cardinal Classic and SUNYAC Championship. The Cardinals advanced to the NCAA Quarterfinals, marking Plattsburgh’s fourth straight appearance in the NCAA tournament. During the 2011-12 season, Emery was named as the SUNYAC Coach of the Year in the same season as he picked up his 500th career victory. Emery guided the Cardinals to its 21st SUNYAC Championship and second in as many years. After a 19-5-4 season, Emery's team was awarded a bye in the NCAA tournament where they made their fifth straight appearance. Emery coached two players to All-America honors in 2012, Mathieu Cadieux and Mike Grace.

Since Emery took over the Plattsburgh reins in 1990, he has amassed over 60 percent of the program's victories in the 39-year-history as a varsity sport. Arguably the most decorated coach in the SUNYAC with 13 league championships in 23 tournament appearances, Emery has mentored six SUNYAC Players of the Year, eight SUNYAC Rookies of the Year, 14 SUNYAC Tournament MVPs and over 100 All-SUNYAC and conference all-tournament selections. The Cards have won nine of the last 16 SUNYAC championships while Emery's tenure also included a six-year string of titles from 1997 to 2002.
