Former Sioux Kallay leaves Tech
Kallay had served at Michigan Tech for three seasons.
"It was a very hard decision for my wife and I to leave Michigan Tech," Kallay said. "A business opportunity has presented itself that we couldn't turn down. I have enjoyed my time here and value the relationships I have made along the way."
Head coach Jamie Russell said Kallay will be missed.
"The goal of every coach is to leave a program better than when they arrived," he said. "And Ian certainly accomplished that here. Not only was he a very good coach, but his work on the recruiting trail was crucial for the future success of this program.
"Although we are sad to lose an outstanding coach like Ian, we know that he is doing something outside of hockey that will provide the best future for him and his family."
Kallay, a Whitecourt, Alta., native, played at UND from 1995-97. He averaged more than a point per game, scoring 39 goals and adding 45 assists in 76 games.
A national search to fill the Michigan Tech coaching vacancy is underway.
