Three-time national champion winning head coach Scott Sandelin has officially rounded out his Bulldog bench for the 2022-2023 season.

On Wednesday the University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD) men’s hockey team officially named Cody Chupp as their new assistant coach.

He joins newly promoted associate head coach Adam Krause on Sandelin’s staff. Chupp previously interviewed for that role in 2020 when Derek Plante was later hired.

A Michigan native, Chupp spent the past eight seasons as a junior coach in the United States Hockey League (USHL), most recently serving as associate head coach for the Muskegon Lumberjacks. Prior to that he was head coach and general manager of the Lincoln Stars where he coached current UMD sophomore Dominic James.

Chupp skated for Ferris State University from 2006-2010. He then went on to play three seasons of professional hockey in the AHL and ECHL.
