Mike Corbett, an assistant coach at Air Force for the past 10 seasons, was named UAH’s sixth head hockey coach on Monday. Corbett was part of a recruiting effort that helped the Falcons win five Atlantic Hockey titles and earn five NCAA tournament berths.
“Mike Corbett has spent the last decade recruiting elite young men to the United States Air Force Academy and winning championships,” said UAH Director of Athletics Dr. E.J. Brophy. “We are very confident that he is the man to lead Charger Hockey into the prestigious WCHA and back to winning on a consistent basis here at UAH.”
Corbett, a defenseman and two-time alternate captain at Denver from 1992-97, will be leading the Chargers into their first season in the WCHA this fall.
