Ohio State head coach Steve Rohlik has named Mark Strobel as the team's new associate head coach replacing outgoing associate head coach Brett Larson, who left to take a similar position at Minnesota Duluth.
Strobel is a Wisconsin alum, captaining the Badgers in his senior season of 1994-95 before a brief minor league pro career.
Strobel has a decent coaching resume, working as a volunteer assistant coach at Colorado College for one season, before spending one season as a USHL assistant coach, and then two-year stops at both Minnesota Duluth and Nebraska-Omaha as an assistant coach. Strobel has not coached at the collegiate level since 2004, however. His most recent college hockey experience came as a rinkside reporter for the Big Ten Network.
