Jindra named new assistant at Alaska-Anchorage

Former Notre Dame forward and volunteer assistant coach T.J. Jindra has been hired as the new assistant coach at Alaska-Anchorage.

Jindra played for four seasons with the Irish from 2003-07 and served as a volunteer assistant last year. He also coached at Sahhtuck-St. Mary’s prep school.

“We are excited for T.J. to join the coaching staff here at UAA,” Alaska-Anchorage head coach Dave Shyiak said in a statement. “He has learned and been exposed to some high-level coaching at both Shattuck-St. Mary’s and Notre Dame. T.J. is a young, enthusiastic coach who will bring good energy and championship experience to the position. His background as a leader and his work ethic will be assets as we continue to build a successful program.”

Jindra replaces Ryan McKelvie, who recently accepted the head coaching position at Lake Forest College.
