They may get a few very young good players who will use the school as an inexpensive stepping stone to get to the next level. That is exactly what has happened at Central and MC, they play for a couple of years and then take off when they are 16 or 17 to repeat at prep school (for those who have a brain) and junior hockey. It just so happened in the case of Central and MC the coaches took off with them. They did not need the school any longer for marketing purposes promising playing time for those who attend their skills sessions and summer camps. Who are the real dummies in this situation the Athletic Directors for allowing their school to be used for private gain, unless of course they get a little kick back on the profits.
The dude brings high energy, excitement,praise and dignity to the bench. You watch, deals in the works. MC will be a hot destination for those in the area
Blown out yet again by a not so strong X 7-2..
Yeesh. They're 1-9.
Looking at the schedule, there might be one win left against D2 LS.
So ZERO wins this year against Mass D1 teams.
Buh-bye... I don't think the 95 Giants are an option next year either...
Total disaster of a program at this point.
Not sure they beat D2 L/S to avoid going 1-19
That will be 2 jobs he'll get canned from inside 6 months.
Back to b-level summer tourneys with the Blackhawks i guess...
How MC hired this guy is astonishing.
Going from state titles to this far in the basement has to be some kind of record in this short of time.
Loss 11-1 to Pope last night. It was hard to watch. I feel for those kids and give them credit for showing up and at least trying.
Brutal.. but that's what happens when you get a perfect storm of watered down talent and horrific coaching
Must have been some long standing bad blood between these teams to let this happen. Flash should get called into the Head Master's office for this display .
Rumor has it that MC has already been called "to the principals office" over some of his actions this season. I really thoughthoped he'd be on his best behavior this year. Horrible record, some very upset parents, and in watching a game, some players obviously tuning him out. At this point, I wonder what Vegas is giving for odds on him making it to year 2?
He's done. No way anyone can justify bringing him back.
It's not like he's got a stellar coaching resume or record to sell them on.
1-19. That's just amazing
So is the MC coach making it to a 2nd year????
MC gave MC the 🥾?
You got some info?
Give the guy until November 23rd of next season before you start making comments about him. He was in a tough spot coming in late most the top players took off to other schools/ midget teams. High School hockey might be dead but he will get the program back to being a good high school spot for younger kids to play for a year or two before moving prep. If the school wants to be a power house again they will need to move to Mount St Charles model to make this happen if the school truly wants the best of the best again.
MC on right path. Some talk of reuniting his all star coaching squad from the fall. MC good leader but the other guys will wreck anything they touch. ( have )
In programs like MC or other Catholic Conference teams, just how much pull do the boosters have? Generally are they alumni or just current player's parents? Do they raise a bunch of $ annually or is it funded 100% by the school? You would think a bunch of past players would be interested in the collapse of their h.s. program.
The guy is in over his head. Didn't succeed at a D3 school no shot he does it at MC.
Fundamentally sound, good with kids, understands the game, has experience and is a good recruiter. Program knows what is doing, will turn things around in short order and will surprise many. Dont judge book by its's cover they say. Was stud player in his day and i expect his wisdom will rub off on his players and within 4 yerars will be battling for a title.
Good with kids..are you f'n serious with that? That is one of the funnier posts of the year. You obviously haven't spoken to any family whose kid he coached. Talk to some of the kids from his last two disasters and tell me if they think he's "good with kids". He'll get next year because he needs a chance to "bring in his own players" and I don't care if they go 20-0, he'll still get the axe because of how he is with kids.
New AD will bring in his own guy.
Guy deserves a chace to prove his doubters wrong. Will have new squad next year and his doubters will eat their words.Good move by the school bringing in one of the better hockey minds north of Boston.
