About Ryan McGinnis
McGinnis has served as an Assistant Coach in the ECHL, first with the Indy Fuel, from 2017-2019, and then with the Norfolk Admirals from 2019-2022. Prior to the start of the 2020-2021 season, McGinnis was promoted to the role of General Manager, overseeing all aspects of Admirals hockey operations, while staying connected to the ice and bench as an Assistant Coach. Before entering the pro game as a coach and manager, the 35-year-old spent two seasons supporting the development of youth players, coaching Tier I ‘AAA’ hockey for the Florida Alliance and Phoenix Jr. Coyotes. Furthermore, Ryan has run his own hockey training business, McGinnis Hockey Development, and has coached at the USA Hockey Select Festival held annually in Buffalo, NY.
Before embarking on his coaching journey, McGinnis spent five successful seasons as a player in the Ontario Hockey League, suiting up for the Plymouth Whalers and Oshawa Generals. An additional five playing seasons followed for McGinnis, at both the AHL and ECHL levels. In ten combined Major Junior and professional playing seasons, McGinnis was part of two championship teams, in the OHL with the Whalers, and in the ECHL with the Florida Everblades, served as an alternate captain in Oshawa and was selected in the sixth round of the 2005 NHL Entry Draft by the Los Angeles Kings.
Ryan, his wife Jill, and their three children will be relocating to the Cincinnati area later this Spring and is looking forward to channeling his experiences and passion for “holistic development” in a direction that positively impacts TPH-Cincinnati and the Spartans.
