Mike Randolph named head boys hockey coach at St. Thomas Academy
MENDOTA HEIGHTS, MN. (KBJR) - Former Duluth East boys hockey coach Mike Randolph has officially been named the new head coach at St. Thomas Academy.
He had served as an assistant coach with the Cadets since his resignation from Duluth East in June of 2021. Randolph left the Greyhounds program as the third winningest coach in MSHSL history. In a press conference with local media members, Randolph cited parental pressure as a contributing factor for his departure.
With 45 years of coaching experience, he has amassed 658 career wins, and is now featured in the Minnesota State High School Coaches Association Hall of Fame.
“We are very excited to have Coach Randolph as our next head coach,” said St. Thomas Academy activities and athletic director Reed Hornung, via press release.
“With 34 years of successful head coaching, he will bring fantastic experience to our program. I look forward to working with him to build men of character both on and off the ice.”
Randolph replaces Trent Eigner as the Cadets’ bench boss, who parted ways with the program after three seasons.
