Nebraska-Omaha names Jutting new assistant coach

Nebraska-Omaha announced Tuesday that Troy Jutting has been named the team’s new assistant coach, replacing Brian Renfrew, who left after one year to take a scouting position with the Winnipeg Jets.

Jutting was the head coach at Minnesota State the last 12 years before being relieved of his duties earlier this offseason.

“We are fortunate that we have been able to add someone of Troy’s experience to our staff,” said UNO head coach Dean Blais in a statement. “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.”

Jutting compiled a record of 184-224-55 with Minnesota State and was named the WCHA coach of the year in 2003 and 2008.

    At least he get will get to learn under a great coach in Dean Blais. He obviously had some problems in Mankato… I wonder though, it seams that Ol’ Deaner’s time in Nebraska maybe be coming to an end in the next 3-5 years (maybe sooner) due to retirement. Does that mean Jutting may have been hired on as a possible successor to the thrown? I feel bad for the new Mavs team then ouch
