T.J. Jindra
Assistant Coach

T.J. Jindra enters his fourth season with the Seawolves as an assistant coach in 2014-15.

Last season, Jindra helped UAA to its first winning season since 1992-93 with a 18-16-4 record, while helping the Seawolves advance to the Final Five after defeating Alaska Fairbanks 2-1 in a best-of-three WCHA First Round playoff series. 

In 2012-13, Jindra helped the Seawolves defend their title at the Kendall Hockey Classic, while landing a program-high-tying 14 to the WCHA Academic All-Conference Team and six to the WCHA Scholar-Athlete Team.

In Jindra’s first season with the Seawolves in 2011-12, UAA captured its own Kendall Hockey Classic and the Brice Alaska Goal Rush tournaments to start the season before picking up wins over ranked Minnesota Duluth, Colorado College and Nebraska Omaha.

Jindra came to UAA from the University of Notre Dame, where he played for four seasons from 2003-07 and served as a volunteer assistant coach during the 2010-11 campaign.

After graduating from Notre Dame in 2007 with a bachelor’s degree in business administration, Jindra spent two seasons as an assistant coach at Shattuck-St. Mary’s School in Faribault, Minn., where he worked with some of the nation’s most talented prep players.

As a player at Notre Dame, he was part of two NCAA Tournament teams and played in 150 career games, scoring 12 goals and 24 assists. He was a two-year team captain for the Fighting Irish, including his senior season when Notre Dame won a school-record 32 games and captured the program’s first-ever Central Collegiate Hockey Association regular-season and tournament titles.

Prior to Notre Dame, Jindra dressed for two seasons with the Omaha/River City Lancers of the USHL.
