Shawhan Named Tech Hockey Coach
Joe Shawhan is the 22nd head coach of Michigan Tech hockey. Athletic Director Suzanne Sanregret made the announcement at a press conference yesterday (May 30).
Shawhan, a 20-year veteran of hockey coaching with more than 10 years in college and 10 years in junior hockey, has been an assistant coach with the Huskies for the past three seasons.
"I'm thrilled to introduce Joe Shawhan as the head coach of our historic hockey program," Sanregret said. "He has been an instrumental part of our success over the last three seasons and winning has followed him in every program in which he has been a part."
Sanregret said this search process was different then the last in that Tech was looking for a coach to build upon recent successes and raise the program to another level.
"We were also looking for a leader who has integrity, character and a genuine interest in developing players to be leaders both on and off the ice. We also want a coach that has strong relationships and networks for recruiting, will continue to recruit to the style of play that we have come to enjoy, and engage with our community. Coach Shawhan has all of these characteristics."
