Brad Marshall has been hired as the new head hockey coach at St. Catherine’s. Marshall, a 1999 University of St. Thomas graduate, was the head girl’s hockey coach at North St. Paul High School for two seasons. His career record at North St. Paul was 48-11 and guided the Polars to section title and a state tournament 2nd place finish in 2004.
In addition to his experience with North St. Paul, Marshall was the University of St. Thomas men’s hockey assistant coach for two years. During his term with St. Thomas, the Tommies were two time MIAC regular season and playoff champions (2002, 2003) and NCAA tournament participants (2003). Marshall played three years for the Tommies during his college career and was team captain in 1997 and team MVP and MIAC All Conference in 1996. Marshall also played on the 1991 Hill Murray Hockey State Championship team.
“We are excited about adding Brad to our coaching staff. His knowledge and background in high school and college hockey will be a tremendous asset as he builds our program into a conference contender,” said Athletic Director Eric Stacey.
Marshall replaces Mary [nl]Brown, who resigned following last season and a 2-20-1 record. In Brown’s three years, she was 18-47-1.
