Jutting Named Assistant at UNO
CHN Staff Report
OMAHA, Neb. Nebraska-Omaha head coach Dean Blais has brought in Troy Jutting as an assistant. Jutting was relieved of his duties as head coach at Minnesota State after this past season. He was replaced by former UNO assistant Mike Hastings.
Jutting also fills a void left by the departure of Brian Renfrew for Winnipeg of the NHL. Jutting was head coach at Minnesota State for 12 years.
“We are fortunate that we have been able to add someone of Troy's experience to our staff,” said Blais. “After so many games coaching against us, he knows our program and our players. Just as important, he knows the WCHA and what it takes to be successful there. I think he can help us as we compete for league and national championships.”
While leading the MSU Mavericks, Jutting compiled a career record of 184-224-55 and was named the WCHA Coach of the Year in 2002-03 and 2007-08.
