Knoxville, TENN. (17 September 2018) – Head Coach Jeff Carr and the Knoxville Ice Bears announced Monday the hiring of their new Head Equipment Manager, Brian McQueen.

McQueen, originally from Boston, MA, moved to Jefferson City, MO and attended the University of Central Missouri, where he played inline hockey as a part of the NCRHA (National Collegiate Roller Hockey Association). He earned a Bachelor’s of Science in Sports Management and later a Master’s in Sport Management, while working for the university as a graduate assistant for UCM’s intramural program.

“We can’t wait to have Brian come in and bring a professional attitude and strong work-ethic to our offices,” Carr said. “He’s excited to be here and we’re pumped to have him.”

While in school, he also worked security for the Kansas City Chiefs (National Football League), dealing directly with players and the coaching staff, from 2015 to 2018. He then began an internship, in the front office, with the Kansas City Mavericks (ECHL). After a short time in the front office, McQueen began working as assistant to the Head of Equipment.

McQueen is Coach Carr’s first hire for the Head Equipment Manager position; Brian will begin his tenure with the Ice Bears in the week leading up to Knoxville’s Free Agent Camp, which begins October 5th.
