Joe Shawhan doesn’t pretend to be a genius, but he does claim to be a good pirate.
The 59-year-old head coach at Michigan Tech counts himself fortunate to have worked around a lot of great people during his hockey career, people who have had a big impact on him, including NCAA champions Frank Anzalone, Jeff Jackson, Walt Kyle and Mel Pearson. Like a sponge, he has soaked in everything that came his way, especially involving team culture and how important it is.
Shawhan, who was a goaltender at Lake Superior State from 1982 to 1987 before moving into coaching, has been behind a hockey bench in one form or another for the past 27 years straight – yes, you read that correctly. His teams have not only been extremely difficult to play against, they’ve also always established great cultures and been successful because of it.
