St. Cloud State will announce the hiring of Bob Motkzo as an assistant coach on Tuesday as expected by many. The St. Cloud Times reports that Motzko will be given a two-year deal.
Motkzo comes to St. Cloud after spending four seasons with Don Lucia at Minnesota. Motzko played his collegiate hockey at St. Cloud from 1984-86 and was a volunteer assistant coach from 1986-87.
Many believe that Motzko move to St. Cloud is in anticipation that he will replace head coach Craig Dahl when Dahl’s current contract expires in two years and Dahl will retire.
