Holy Cross assistant Sheahan leaves for coaching job with USHL’s Steel

Holy Cross associate coach Brock Sheahan has been named associate head coach of the USHL’s Chicago Steel.

Sheahan has spent the last four seasons at Holy Cross as associate coach and assistant coach.

“Brock’s hockey mind, passion for development, and experience as both a player and an NCAA Division I coach will be a vital resource for our players going forward,” said Steel GM Ryan Hardy in a statement. “Throughout this process, we were looking to round out our staff with a candidate who possessed the skill set and demeanor to be a future head coach while also bringing unique experiences to the table.”

“My family and I are very excited about the opportunity to be a part of the Steel organization,” added Sheahan. “Ryan Hardy, (head coach) Greg Moore and I share the same beliefs in the development process for players at the junior level. I am looking forward to getting started and helping to implement this progressive vision.”

While with the Crusaders, Sheahan was in charge of video review, teaching sessions, on-ice skill sessions, positional development, recruiting and statistical analysis. Prior to Holy Cross, Sheahan spent one season as volunteer assistant coach at Notre Dame, his alma mater.

As a defenseman, Sheahan played 161 games for Notre Dame from 2004 to 2008, recording 33 points along the way.
