The Coach of the Year was first awarded in 2014 and is a successor to the CCHA Coach of the Year which was discontinued after the conference dissolved due to the 2013–14 NCAA conference realignment.[2]

It is named in honor of Herb Brooks who, though having died ten years prior to the NCHC beginning play, coached founding member St. Cloud State for one season. He is more famously known for coaching Minnesota to their first three national championships in the 1970s as well as leading Team USA to the 1980 gold medal.

A Herb Brooks Award is given out annually by the Minnesota State High School League.
