University School of Milwaukee has announced that Corbin McGuire has been named head boys’ ice hockey coach. During McGuire’s successful run as interim co-head coach with Matt Roadhouse this past season, the Wildcat Hockey team earned a 24-3 record, was Classic 8 champions, and also regional and sectional champions. He has been at the helm of the Wildcat program that has gone to three straight WIAA State Tournaments: 2019, 2020, and 2021.
In his three years with the Wildcat hockey team, he has helped to build a positive, winning culture, and he has great vision for the whole program. “We are here to build great young men beyond hockey,” he said. “Our sport is one of the things that we use to do that, and if we do it right, then success will follow.”
“Corbin did a terrific job with our team this past season and proved how well he can lead young men,” said Tim Williams, USM’s director of athletics. “I’m excited for our future of our program.”
McGuire has been successful at all levels of hockey. He played at the prestigious Taft School in Watertown, Connecticut, and then went on to play junior hockey for the Fargo Force, the United States Hockey League, and the Jersey Hitmen of the Eastern Junior Hockey League. His college hockey was played at the University of Wisconsin for four years, where he helped the Badgers win a Big Ten title in 2014. In addition to his coaching stint at USM, he had coached for Lake Forest College and has served as a regional scout for various junior hockey teams.
“I can’t express how excited I am to continue building what we started here at USM,” said McGuire. “We have a great tradition and all the pieces are here to continue our success.”
