Stewart joins New Hampshire staff as associate head coach

Glenn Stewart is returning to his alma mater after being named associate head coach at New Hampshire.

The school’s announcement Friday came one day after Merrimack announced his replacement in the same position there, Curtis Carr.

Stewart spent the last five seasons at Merrimack, the final two as associate head coach.

He played for New Hampshire from 1990 to 1994, posting 51 goals and 102 points in 144 games.

“It is very exciting for myself and my family to come back to UNH,” Stewart said in a news release. “I am eager to get started and look forward to working with coach [Dick] Umile, [associate head] coach [Scott] Borek and the team.”

After a nine-season professional playing career that included stops in the ECHL, IHL, UHL and AHL, Stewart spent one season as an assistant at American International and five seasons as an assistant at Connecticut.

At New Hampshire, he replaces Jim Tortorella, who left the program to pursue a career outside of hockey.
