Minnesota Scene: Sertich retires after long coaching career

  • Updated: March 17, 2014 - 11:52 PM

Steve Sertich, the longtime hockey coach at Roseville High School who most recently led the Bemidji State women’s program, announced his retirement Monday.

Sertich spent eight seasons behind the BSU bench, winning 81 games. He was the 2009-10 WCHA coach of the year.

Before that, he was at Roseville, first as the boys’ coach (1993-2003 — 156 victories, two state tournament appearances), then as the girls’ coach (2003-2006 — 62 victories, one state appearance).

“I’ve truly enjoyed my time as a teacher and coach at both the high school and Division I levels, and now I look forward to the next chapter of my life,” Sertich said in a news release.

Sertich began his coaching career in 1976 as the boys’ coach at Northfield.

In the spring of 2010, he was inducted into the Minnesota High School Hockey Coaches Hall of Fame.
