BB&N has hockey????
Huh, "resigned" sure is a funny way to spell "fired".
he got fired by a girl!
It's unfortunate but he should have been let go years ago. They never had a winning record and there has been way too much lack of performance from good talent. Look at the change in schedule with multiple games against Pingree and now three against Moses Brown last year? Dexter won't go to their Christmas tourney anymore, Hopefully the change does the program good and the turnaround is relatively quick. Hate seeing anyone lose their job but the coach has to have as much passion as the kids that play for him or these things will happen.
BBN doesn't support the athletics like other schools. They have to be able to get the good kids in and make it affordable for the ones that need financial aid. Athletics just isnt a priority.
I guess the hired a Brooks School asst; PR. Can't find anything on him! Any ideas ?

I would be more interested in his playing and coaching resume as opposed to his philosophy!
Very good high school player that has done all he can do to learn about coaching. He will be an excellent coach, but at that level BBN has to support him and help him with his recruits. He has a great following of kids and parents that love his coaching.
He looks tiny so his playing resume might be a bit light but it looks like people believe in him. I will say a few years ago I was at a big tournament and watched a game with a fat kid who claimed he was scouting for the school and let me tell you this kid had no idea what he was watching....so it might be better.
It is unfortunate that people come on here and make up stories! He did resign and you can only coach a team that you have! When a school doesn't support some of their programs and you can't get kids in it is hard to win against schools that are birding players from Canada etc
That is true! Every grade can only get a certain amount of kids a year in. Hockey was never the priority sport to get kids in. If there was kid better at baseball or football they would take him over hockey. That's just how it is and was. It wasn't the coaches fault, he can't say yes or no. It is always a battle with the admissions department. The coach isn't going to make a difference it's still going to be the same team and the same battle with admissions. If your the best coach you can only coach the kids you have unfortunately. He was a great coach and the kids are devasted he is leaving!
He did resign ! I don't know where your information comes from!
