(KNSI) - St. Cloud State University Men's Hockey Coach Bob Motzko is leaving the Huskies to become head coach at the University of Minnesota.
Motzko led the Huskies to eight NCAA tournament appearances and three regular season championships in 13 seasons.
SCSU Athletic Director Heather Weems thanked Motzko for helping position St. Cloud State among the nation's elite hockey programs, and says the search for his successor is underway.
Motzko was an assistant coach for the Gophers from 2001 to 2005.
"After 13 years competing against Bob, we are excited to welcome him back to Gopher Hockey, where he had so much success as an assistant earlier in his career," said University of Minnesota Athletics Director Mark Coyle.
