Coach Nielsen's Ice Hockey Drills

Millersville University Men’s Ice Hockey Looking for New Head Coach

The selection committee at Millersville University has asked me to help find a new head coach for the program. They had a quality coach who had to resign for personal reasons today and now the team is beginning the search for his replacement.

The team is funded by the university and has a quality program. The team has made it to the league championship the past two seasons and is returning most of their top players. The head coaching position is a paid position (modest salary along the line of a AAA coach). The team is looking for a coach with experience and a willingness to run the program at an elite level. The team plays home games and practices in Lancaster, PA. If you are interested in the position please send me your contact information and I will pass it along to the committee performing the search.

If any of our readers are interested or know of someone who is interested please pass this along to them. I have a personal interest in this team since my son plays for them. The team is made up of all AA, AAA & junior level players who are committed to being successful. They have a load of returning talent and two quality goaltenders. This could be a nice opportunity for the right coach to begin his college career.
