Jack Parker’s resume speaks for itself: he served as the head coach at Boston University for 40 seasons and posted an overall record of 897-472-115. Meanwhile, you can’t think of University of Michigan hockey and not think of  Red Berenson, the now retired head coach who spent 33 seasons behind the bench at Michigan, leading the Wolverines to 23 NCAA tournaments and a pair of National Championships. These phenomenal coaches sat down with Aaron Wilbur, founder of The Coaches Site, to share the lessons they learned throughout their careers, along with how relationships shape the college hockey experience.

He’s a leader when it comes to daily habits and believes that your team’s daily habits form your team’s standards, which ultimately become your program culture. In his presentation, Shawhan discussed how he’s implemented this mindset at Michigan Tech.
