Troy Jutting is out as head coach at MSU-Mankato, the school announced tonight.
Jutting was with the Mavs for 12 years and twice won the WCHA’s coach of the year award. The Mavs haven’t finished higher than eighth in the last four seasons, though.
Jutting will be re-assigned within the school, which stated in a release: “Jutting’s potential assignments will include fundraising, marketing, program development, capital projects, and community relations, amongst other possible duties.
In addition, Jutting will serve as a special assistant to the president, providing assistance to (President Richard) Davenport in his leadership role with the presidents of the re-aligned WCHA.”
The new coach will have a great base to work with. The Mavs had a strong rookie class this year and have some standout recruits lined up. One scout said earlier this year that he thinks the Mavs have a good chance to win the newly aligned WCHA in 2013-14.
