All in ... Huntsville hires coach

Alabama Huntsville hired a new coach on Monday, naming former Air Force assistant Mike Corbett. That fills the final Division I opening of the offseason. Read the UAH press release here.

Corbett has spent the last 10 years with Air Force, including last season as associate head coach. Corbett played at Denver and was a junior coach after that.

Corbett also interviewed for the Alaska Anchorage opening this spring (twice!), and his name was once floated as a possibility for the Denver job after George Gwozdecky was let go.

Huntsville will play in the "new" WCHA next season. Here is a list of the WCHA teams and their coaches:

Minnesota State, Mike Hastings (second year)
Alaska Anchorage, Matt Thomas (first year)
Bemidji State, Tom Serratore (13th year)
Michigan Tech, Mel Pearson (third year)
Alaska, Dallas Ferguson (sixth year)
Bowling Green, Chris Bergeron (fourth year)
Ferris State, Bob Daniels (22nd year)
Lake Superior State, Jim Roque (ninth year)
Northern Michigan, Walt Kyle (12th year)
Alabama Huntsville, Mike Corbett (first year)
