Larry Taylor is stepping down as head coach of the M3 University of Nebraska Men’s hockey team.
Coach Taylor has been the Husker’s head coach since 2005, developing the program into one of the ACHA’s top teams during his tenure. He has led the team to numerous M3 Pacific Regional tournaments and four trips to the ACHA National Tournament.
Larry was twice-selected as the Pacific Region Coach of the Year, and in 2019-20, he was the ACHA’s M3 Coach of the Year.
In the Mid America Collegiate Hockey Association league, where he recently stepped down as President, he earned Coach of the Year honors a few times, and coached numerous MACHA All-Star Challenge teams. He was slated to coach the 2020 MACHA M3 Select Team in Europe until COVID-19 put a stop to international travel.
He coached over 400 games at Nebraska in both the M2 and M3 divisions His overall record is 254-161-7 as head coach.
Coach Taylor said, “I have made a lot of friends during my journey; players, assistant coaches, team staff, and especially within the MACHA and the ACHA leagues. I specifically want to thank Mark Champion, Linda Amsbaugh, Tim Miller, Wanda MIller, Jacob Miller, Zach Miller, Bryan Chamberlain, Jim Sturm, and my wife, Mary Fuller. Without a big group effort, Nebraska Hockey wouldn’t be where it is today.”
“Special thanks also to Reed Fuller, who has been an Assistant Coach with me for many years, as well as a former Husker Hockey player. He will take over the head coaching job, and will be assisted by Nate Fuller, a current assistant, and also a former player. I leave the program in capable hands!”
