Head Coach & General Manager – Jimmy Jensen
Jimmy Jensen is serving in his first season as Head Coach and General Manager of the Billings Bulls. The 2017-18 season will be his third year coaching in the NA3HL, with the two previous seasons being with the now-defunct Minnesota Flying Aces from 2014-2016.
Following the sale of the team in 2016, Jensen returned to local community hockey in the city of Brainerd MN, where he was the Head Coach of the High School JV team and assisted with the Varsity team for the 2016-17 season.
Jensen’s playing career began at the prestigious Hill-Murray High School in Maplewood MN, where he participated in the 2000 State High School Hockey Tournament. Following his junior year, he was recruited to the Waterloo Black Hawks of the United States Hockey League (USHL), playing three seasons in Waterloo while serving as team captain for two.
A bit of a vagabond while in college, he played for two Division I programs; Ferris State University (CCHA) as well as the University of Minnesota Duluth (WCHA); and one Division III program at the University of Wisconsin River Falls (NCHA) where he studied Journalism and Film.
During his professional career he played 191 minor league games over 5 seasons that saw him spend time in the East Coast Hockey League (ECHL), Southern Professional Hockey League (SPHL) and Federal Hockey League (FHL).
Although always maintaining a recruiting hub in his home state of Minnesota during the offseason, Jensen is proud to be calling Billings home this year as he moves later this summer with his wife Ashley, son Jimmy and daughter Josie.
