COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado (CC Athletics Release) – Lesley Irvine, vice president and director of athletics at Colorado College, has named Kris Mayotte the 15th head coach in the history of the hockey program in schools.
Mayotte brings a wealth of success as one of the best assistant coaches and recruiters in the country to Colorado College. During his 10 years as a Division I assistant and associate head coach, he helped lead his teams to a 2015 NCAA National Championship, two Frozen Fours, and seven NCAA Tournament appearances. In addition, Mayotte won a pair of gold medals and a bronze in three stints as an assistant coach with Team USA at the World Junior Championships.
Mayotte, who has spent the past two seasons at the University of Michigan with head coach Mel Pearson after five years at Providence College under Nate Leaman, has recruited six All-Americans and prepared some of his players for the National Hockey League.
We are delighted to welcome Kris to the Tiger family, said Irvine. Kris is the right leader at the right time for Colorado College’s hockey program. I quickly learned why he was known as a rising star. He is a winner, a ruthless recruiter and an exceptional leader. Kris has a degree in liberal arts and understands how to combine academic and athletic excellence. He is positioned to be an excellent head coach as we plan to move the program forward and open the doors of Robson Arena.
Last season, Michigan ranked third in the country, conceding only 1.96 goals per game and ninth with 3.5 goals per game. The Wolverines completed the 2019-2020 campaign in seventh place in the country, scoring just 2.00 goals per game, while net less Strauss Mann was named Big Ten Goaltender of the Year and a finalist for the Mike Richter Award.
Some of Mayottes’ main responsibilities upon his arrival in Ann Arbor were goalkeeping and penalty killing. In his first season with the Wolverines, they ranked third in the country in save percentage and 15th in penalty kill percentage.
Earlier this year, Mayotte served as an assistant coach under Leaman in the gold medal-winning US National Junior Team at the 2021 International Ice Hockey Federation World Junior Championship in Canada. Mayotte also helped the US win gold in 2017 and bronze in 2018.
I am honored and humbled to become the next head coach at Colorado College and continue the historic tradition of Tiger Hockey, Mayotte said. I am energized by all that CC has to offer and the vision for the program and look forward to being a visible leader on campus and in the community. The addition of Robson Arena is a game changer and we have all the parts to build a championship schedule. I look forward to continuing the high standard of excellence, on and off the ice, at Colorado College.
From 2014-19, Mayotte spent five seasons with Leaman at Providence College and was named associate head coach in 2017. A member of the 2015 NCAA National Championship coaching staff, Mayotte led both the Friar goalkeepers and the penalty-kill unit, while covering all aspects of many nationally ranked recruiting courses. Providence earned a trip to the NCAA tournament each of his five years at the school.
Under his leadership, Friar goalkeepers and penalty kill units were in the best countries of his last three seasons. In 18-19, the Friars finished in joint sixth place in the country for the fewest goals scored per game (2.00), while the penalty-kill unit was in fourth place (87 percent).
Mayotte spent two seasons (2012-13 and 2013-14) as an assistant coach at St. Lawrence University under head coach Greg Carvel, where he was the primary recruiter and worked with the goalkeepers and penalty-kill unit during his time at the Saints. He was also a volunteer assistant coach at Cornell University under Mike Schafer (2011-12).
As colleges, Mayotte was the starting goalkeeper of Union Colleges from 2002-2006. His last three seasons coincided with the first three seasons of Leaman’s tenure as national team manager. Mayotte ended his college career with 116 games played and an average of 2.69 against goals, earning the ECAC Hockey All-Rookie Team (2003) and ECAC Second All-Star Team (2006) awards.
After graduation, Mayotte played professionally for four seasons, including American Hockey League stints with Lowell, Hershey, Bridgeport and Adirondack. He also played in the East Coast Hockey League for San Diego, Fresno and Johnstown and in the Central Hockey League for Arizona.
Mayotte and his wife, July, are residents of Pittsburgh, Pa.
Colorado College will formally introduce Mayotte at a press conference on Monday, April 12.
