David Hoff (Bottineau, N.D.), who served as an assistant coach on the gold medal-winning 2018 U.S. Paralympic Sled Hockey Team at the 2018 Paralympic Winter Games in PyeongChang, South Korea, has been named head coach of the 2018-19 U.S. National Sled Hockey Team, it was announced today by USA Hockey.
"We're extremely pleased to have David as the head coach of our national team for this coming season," said Dan Brennan, director of sled national teams for USA Hockey and general manager of the 2018-19 U.S. National Sled Hockey Team. "He was an important part of our Paralympic gold medal-winning staff last March and has contributed to our program for the last seven years in multiple capacities."
Last season, Hoff helped the United States compile a 15-1-0-1 (W-OTW-OTL-L) record that included championship wins at both the 2017 World Sled Hockey Challenge in Charlottetown, P.E.I., and the 2018 Turin Para Ice Hockey International Tournament before culminating in an unprecedented third-straight Paralympic gold medal.
"It's a privilege to be asked to coach this team and I'm thankful to USA Hockey for this opportunity," said Hoff. "I have seen first-hand how both Jeff (Sauer) and Guy (Gosselin) cultivated a winning culture within this program. In looking at our player pool, I'm excited for tryouts later this month and to begin working with Dan and our development team coaches in shaping our roster for this coming season."
Last season, Hoff helped Team USA to Paralympic gold as well as the 2017 World Sled Challenge title
This will be Hoff's third season with the U.S. National Sled Hockey Team after serving as an assistant coach alongside Guy Gosselin (Grafton, Wis.) last season and the late Jeff Sauer (Madison, Wis.) in 2016-17. In addition to helping the U.S. to a trio of international wins in 2017-18, Hoff also was part of Team USA's silver medal finish at the 2017 Para Sled Hockey World Championship in Goyang, South Korea.
Hoff, who has also been involved with USA Hockey as a coach-in-chief for the last 10 years, serves as an athletic director, mathematics teacher and head coach for the boys' ice hockey team at Bottineau High School. He graduated from Minot State University in 1990.
