Yale University associate head coach Dan Muse will be named the new head coach of the Chicago Steel, according to multiple sources. It has been rumored for quite some time that Muse would be landing in the USHL.

Billionaire Larry Robbins has reportedly bought the team, according to ESPN's John Buccigross. Muse has been an assistant at Yale since 2009 and had a large hand in the Bulldogs winning their first national championship in 2013.

"Dan is a true friend and a tremendous hockey coach," said Yale coach Keith Allain. "He has made a huge impact on all of us," players and coaches alike, and was instrumental in the success of our hockey program over these last six years."

Muse played college hockey at Division III Stonehill before entering the coaching fraternity as an assistant at Milton Academy, a prep school outside Boston. Prior to Yale, he worked as an assistant at Division III Williams before moving onto Sacred Heart for a season.

Muse, a Canton, Mass. native, has been active on the coaching front during the summers at USA Hockey Festivals and other showcases. This will be his first head coaching gig.

"I have no doubt that he will do fantastic things with the Chicago Steel. We all wish him the best of luck," said Allain.
