On May 26, the Robert Morris University Division I hockey programs were dropped which meant that players, coaches and staff have to find new homes for the upcoming season and beyond.

Jen Kindret of the women’s hockey team and Mike Corbett from the men’s team have become the first former RMU hockey coaches to find new homes for the upcoming season.

Kindret was named the new head coach at Saint Anselm College, which is a Division II school in the Northeast-10 Conference. Kindret will be the third head coach in program history for the Hawks. In the 2019-2020 season, the Hawks finished with a record of 16-14-3 and a conference record of 11-8-1. The Hawks made it all the way to the NEWHA Championship game in the 2019-2020 season as well, but their season got canceled in 2020-2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Kindret, a women’s hockey alum, spent the past two seasons as Paul Colontino’s top assistant after building up Division III King’s College as the first head coach in school history.

Corbett will join the Quinnipiac men’s hockey staff as an assistant head coach. He joins a squad that made it all the way to the NCAA tournament last season. Corbett started as the head coach for Alabama-Huntsville and had just joined Robert Morris as an assistant before last season.

Thus far, five women’s hockey personnel have found new homes, including four players. Mike Corbett becomes the first men’s hockey staff member to find a new job for the upcoming season.
