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.
