Jed McGlasson is leaving his position as assistant coach and director of business operations for the Kenai River Brown Bears to take the assistant hockey coach’s position at Division III Saint Mary’s University in Winona, Minnesota.
McGlasson, a former standout player for Kenai Central and the Brown Bears, had been an assistant for the Brown Bears for a little over two seasons. McGlasson played hockey for Saint Mary’s and graduated in 2015.
“It’s tough to lose Jed because he’s been very good in the community as well as with the team,” Kenai River head coach Josh Petrich said. “At the same time, it’s a great opportunity for him and we want him to succeed.”
McGlasson said the current assistant at Saint Mary’s left for another job, opening up the opportunity under head coach Bill Moore. McGlasson said he got a call about the job last year but could not move on the opportunity then. This time, he jumped.
McGlasson said another nice thing about the job is that it is close to Rochester, Minnesota, the hometown of fiancee Amanda Rahman.
