St. Cloud State University has found its new men's hockey coach from an in-state rival.

Brett Larson, an assistant coach at University of Minnesota-Duluth, will now be at the helm for the Huskies program. Larson mostly recently helped lead the Bulldogs to a NCAA Championship this season. He has two NCAA championships on his resume. 

"Brett is a tremendously talented coach and has played a significant role in the success of the University of Minnesota Duluth's men's hockey program," said Heather Weems, St. Cloud State Director of Athletics, in a press release. "As an assistant coach during both of UMD's National Championships, and with a stop at Ohio State University during their program's elevation, Coach Larson has proven himself a top recruiter and helped to develop multiple players during their collegiate careers and as they advance to the next level of play.”

Larson is replacing Coach Bob Motzko, who left St. Cloud State to coach the Minnesota Gophers.
