(Tempe, AZ)  Sun Devil Hockey head coach Greg Powers announces the hiring of Mike Corbett as assistant coach in a move that bolsters the ASU bench in anticipation of its first season in the National Collegiate Hockey Conference (NCHC). Corbett officially joins the Arizona State team on Monday, July 8. 

Corbett most recently finished his third season as assistant coach with the Quinnipiac Bobcats. He was instrumental in the Bobcats’ postseason success during his tenure, including the 2023 National Championship. In his other two campaigns in Hamden, the squad won an NCAA Tournament game and advanced to the NCAA Regional Finals.

“This is a tremendous day for our program. Mike is a great coach, great recruiter and an unbelievable human being. His experience and success speaks for itself and will really help our program as we head into the NCHC,” said Sun Devil Hockey head coach Greg Powers. “Mike has been someone I’ve always wanted to work with since we went Division I. His recent success at Quinnipiac in helping them get two Elite Eights and winning a National Championship is something I know he wants to bring here to ASU. We got better today..a lot better.”
Over the last three seasons with Quinnipiac, Corbett helped the Bobcats to a 93-21-8 record, winning back-to-back-to-back Cleary Cups as the ECAC’s Regular Season Champion. The Bobcats led the nation in scoring defense in two of the seasons Corbett was with Quinnipiac and executed a top-four scoring offense in each of the last two seasons.

Before Hamden, he served as an assistant coach at Robert Morris, where he coached three AHA All-League selections, two All-Rookie selections, and the league’s Rookie, Defenseman and Co-Player of the Year.
Prior to Robert Morris, Corbett was the head coach at the University of Alabama-Huntsville for eight seasons. He was responsible for rebuilding the program after it was discontinued in 2011 and produced three playoff berths, the program’s first playoff win and win over a top-10 opponent, and multiple all-league selections. Under Corbett’s watch, the program had 46 All-WCHA Academic selections, upgraded locker room facilities with two renovations and built a state-of-the-art weight room facility.
Corbett’s initial experience in college hockey came as assistant/associate head coach at Air Force, where he worked for 10 seasons and earned five tournament championships and subsequent NCAA Tournament berths. He coached and recruited the only Hobey Baker Hat Trick finalist in Air Force history, along with four All-Americans, three players of the year, and 19 All-Conference selections.
In addition to numerous years of coaching at the collegiate level, Corbett also has experience with USA Hockey, where he has served as a coach for the 15-, 16-, and 17-year-old National Festivals for 23 years and will be heading to Switzerland in August as an assistant coach the U17 Team USA Five Nations Team.
Corbett graduated with a bachelor’s degree in management from the University of Denver in 1996. As a senior, he was awarded the Daniels School of Business Management Leadership award and went on to earn a Master’s of Science in Management in 1998. The two-time alternate captain at Denver was also a 1997 finalist for the NCAA Hockey Humanitarian Award.
