Moorhead, MN (WDAY TV) - The Cullen name is royalty in Moorhead, so perhaps it's fitting that a Cullen will now be running the Spuds Hockey team. Peter Cullen has been recommended to the Moorhead School Board to take over the position. It's expected that Cullen will be approved to that post later tonight.

Cullen was an assistant on Dave Morinville's staff last year. He's coached youth hockey in Moorhead for the past 8 years and says he has orange and black in his blood.

Peter Cullen – Recommended to be Moorhead Coach: “I'm an alumni. I have a little bit of youth on my side. I have a strong passion for hockey, amd an even stronger for Moorhead hockey. I've been involved in youth program for quite a while, so I have the connection there, along with my other alumni that support me and have my back.”

Moorhead AD Don Hulbert says this hire is on an interim basis and will re-visit the position after next season.
