Carr gets promotion to associate head coach at Merrimack

Merrimack has elevated Curtis Carr from assistant coach to associate head coach, the school announced Thursday.

Carr is set to replace Glenn Stewart in the role. Stewart has been linked to a move to New Hampshire in various reports.

Carr has been an assistant at Merrimack for the last three years, most notably overseeing the penalty kill.

“Curtis has had a huge impact on our program in a short time,” Merrimack coach Mark Dennehy said in a news release. “His influence has broadened and he has had a hand in every facet of Merrimack hockey.”

Carr previously was with Youngstown of the USHL, finishing a five-year stretch with the club as head coach and general manager.

A former Kent State player in the ACHA, Carr later joined the Golden Flashes’ coaching staff for three seasons.

“I couldn’t be happier to be continuing my coaching career at Merrimack would like to thank Mark Dennehy for the promotion to associate head coach,” Carr said in a release. “I would also like to extend my thanks to [athletic director] Jeremy Gibson for supporting the move. My family and I are excited and I look forward to continuing to work to elevate Merrimack Hockey to new heights.”
