Bill Muckalt, who served as an associate head coach for the Michigan hockey team for six seasons, will be departing from Ann Arbor this offseason, as reported by College Hockey News. The news has not been confirmed by a Michigan spokesperson. If the reports are true, Muckalt’s departure would mark the first significant change in the Wolverines’ coaching staff since Brandon Naurato was appointed as head coach.
It appears that this rumored departure has been expected for some time. In August of last year, when former Michigan hockey coach Mel Pearson was dismissed due to misconduct, Bill Muckalt was one of two individuals interviewed for the position of interim head coach. Despite having served as an associate head coach for the program, Muckalt was not selected for the role. Instead, Michigan Athletic Director Warde Manuel appointed Brandon Naurato, who had only one season of experience as an assistant coach, to the interim position.
