Northern Michigan University Athletics announced Tuesday that head hockey coach Grant Potulny will be stepping down to pursue a position at the professional hockey level and athletic director Rick Comley will be taking over as interim head coach, effective as of Tuesday.

A national search for a new head coach will begin immediately.

Associate head coach Byron Pool and assistant coach Nick Peruzzi have also stepped down to accept coaching positions elsewhere.

Potulny led the Wildcats to a 12-16-6 overall and 10-10-4 conference record this past season and brought the Wildcats to two conference championship games (2020-21 WCHA, 2022-23 CCHA) in the past four seasons. Serving as head coach since the 2017-18 season, he began his career at NMU with back-to-back 20-plus win seasons. He finished with four 20-plus win seasons and concluded his career at Northern Michigan with a 128-113-17 overall and 95-69-11 conference mark.


Go Gophers!!
