Will Jurgensen as New Head Coach

August 12th, 2014

The Marquette University Hockey Team is excited to announce the selection of new head coach Will Jurgensen.

 

Originally from Omaha, NE, Will has played competitive hockey for over 18 years.  Will graduated from Marquette University in 2013 and was an integral part of the hockey team during his four years.  He was the Captain for three seasons and a member of Marquette's first national tournament appearance in 2013.

 

As the new Head Coach, Will is dedicated to continuing the growth of Marquette Hockey both locally and nationally.  Will is confident in his experience as a player in the ACHA and believes that it will translate well into coaching as he gets ready for his first season with the team.  Jurgensen stated, "My goal is to continue to build on our program's success over the past few years and make sure we have a chance to win everyday."   Marquette has put together what appears to be its most competitive schedule in recent years with road trips to Arkansas, Notre Dame and a tournament at Xavier University.   "We are playing a number of teams I know little about, so its important that we create a team identity from the very beginning and continue to play Marquette Hockey week in and week out.  I am confident that we can compete against any team in our league," Jurgensen proclaimed.  The season will begin on September 12th with road games at Iowa University followed by the team's first set of home games against Bradley University on September 19th at the Ponds of Brookfield.  When asked about his expectations, Coach Jurgensen responded, "I have our team's long term goals in mind of course, but I am very anxious to begin tryouts and see what talent we can add to last year's skilled team.  Our tryout numbers grow every year so there is no telling what we will see come September 2nd.  Our success will be measured by how quickly and well we can come together as a team and buy into our system.  As long as we are able to do that and work very hard, the possibilities for success are endless."
