Marlin Muylaert will leave a successful program at the University of Guelph to assume the head coaching position at the Wisconsin-Eau Claire, director of athletics Marilyn Skrivseth announced.
Skrivseth said the university is “exceptionally fortunate to attract a person of Marlin’s calibre to join our staff.”
Muylaert takes over for Ian Perrin, who resigned after nine seasons as Blugold head coach. He becomes the sixth head coach in the 23-year history of Blugold hockey. The Blugolds were 10-15-2 this past season in NCAA Division III.
Muylaert has coached the past 11 seasons at Guelph, in Ontario, where his team won the Canadian University national championship in 1997; this season he was named 3M Ontario Coach of the Year. His overall 13-year head coaching record is 229-127-20, a .635 winning percentage.
