Scott Cunningham

Assistant Coach & Assistant General Manager

Scott Cunningham enters his 4th season with the Brooks Bandits as Assistant Coach & GM in 2017-18.

A coaching veteran of more than 20 junior hockey seasons, Cunningham coached the Helena Bighorns of the then-Northern Pacific Hockey League (NPHL) to a USA Hockey National Championship in 2011, as well as seven league championships in an eight-year span before joining the Bandits.

Since joining the Bandits, Cunningham has helped to steer the team to three consecutive South Division championships, including two AJHL championships in 2016 and 2017, and two straight appearances at the RBC Cup national championship. 

In his eight-year tenure with the Bighorns, Cunningham posted a total record of 327-49-6 (.864), including a record-setting 46-1-1 mark in his final year before coming to Brooks. Prior to that, in 2012-13, Cunningham's Bighorns went 44-2-2 and reached the USA Hockey national semi-final, falling in double overtime and placing as national bronze medallists.

In 2010-11, his team set a bevy of records with a 48-2 regular season run, including 400 goals scored over the 50 game schedule, and the team's first-ever national championship by defeating the El Paso Rhinos 5-1 in Rochester, Minnesota. Totalling pre-season, regular season, playoffs, and the national tournament, Cunningham led the Bighorns to a 70-3 record that year.

In addition to his championship tenure with the Bighorns, Cunningham also served as head coach and general manager for the Queen City Cutthroats from 2004-2006, winning league championships both seasons, the Great Falls Americans from 2001-2003 and 1999-2000, the Liberty Lake Lumberjacks in 2000-01, and the Helena Ice Pirates from 1995-1999.

Originally from Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta, Cunningham resides in Brooks with his wife Kerry and sons Nolan, Camden, and Braden.
