He helped the Knights to four consecutive conference titles for the first time in school history. It was also their first section championship and first state tournament appearance in there 43 year history. Prior to STMA he also served as an assistant coach on the Anoka varsity boys staff from 2012-2014.

Before coaching high school hockey Sean spent four seasons as coach in the North American Hockey League with the Alaska Avalanche and the Wichita Falls Wildcats. Each year his teams continued to get better and brought a championship caliber team to the league in which they helped move on 50+ kids to play college hockey and 3 of them becoming draft picks, 2 currently playing in the NHL.

As a player, the Anoka, Minnesota, native was a part of the only state championship team in Anoka’s history in 2003 in which he was serving his second season as team captain. After high school he played two seasons for the Minnesota Blizzard in the NAHL where he also served as team captain.
