Raleigh, NC -
The Club Hockey team at North Carolina State University today has announced that Tim Healy will be promoted to Head Coach for the start of the 2020-2021 season. He becomes the 4th head coach for the Icepack in the ACCHL era and has begun the search to fill the coaching spot left vacant by his promotion.
"Tim is an upstanding individual who has repeatedly demonstrated his commitment to our team and its success,” said team president Ian O’Rourke. “He is knowledgeable and passionate about the game and I have no doubt that he will lead this team to success both on and off the ice in the years to come."
Healy, entering his fourth year with the Icepack, helped shape two ACCHL championships, two regional appearances and a Nationals appearance as the team’s defense and special teams coach. Over the past 2 seasons under his watch, the club amassed a total of 21 shorthanded goals. In the 2018-2019 season, the team was able to outscore opponents 14-7 while a man down.
Before moving to Raleigh, the Kingston, NY native coached primarily at preparatory schools between 2001 and 2013, with stops as head and assistant coach on the mens and womens side at Proctor Academy, Tilton School and Worcester Academy. After leaving New England, Healy served as an administrator at IMG Academy, a world renowned sports training facility, in Florida. He has compiled an 86-42-11 record during this time.
“I am grateful to [Former Icepack Coach] Mike Gazzillo for giving me an opportunity to join the Icepack, and the current club leaders entrusting me to take on this role,'' said Healy. “Coaching at State is an honor and a privilege… we hope to continue to make the State family and alumni proud.”
He currently resides in Raleigh with his wife, Mary-Ellen, and their two hockey playing daughters, Bridget and Meredith. He serves full time as the Dean of Students at Saint Mary’s School.
