Any truth that the front runner up and left and moved to Florida this week? Would be a nice addition to that scene in Braintree no doubt. Big Time
Motts is the favorite. Vegas has 2-1 odds.
Billy Big Time gonna rock TA
So what if he did- guy made a mistake years ago-
With everything going on in the world today, it isn't a deal breaker.
Motts would be the best choice by far.
The guy has been handed things his whole life and doesn't seem appreciative. I don't think he's deserving of the job. If that makes me an a-hole then ok.
Amen to what
I say give it to someone who actually needs the job and will work at it.
Is it a known fact that MM even applied for the job?
Im curious why so many people here care who gets this job. Thayer is a small school that not many people even go to...are there that many Thayer hockey parents on dboard? Or maybe whoever keeps bringing this up applied? We'll find out eventually if we want to. There are a lot of thing in the hockey world I wonder about...this isn't one of them.
It's not a small school. 700 or so students. Not huge, but not small.
People care because it has a strong hockey tradition. Roenick, Amonte, and Silk, for starters, and a decent number of NHL and DI players (Whitney, Gaudette, others).
Also, the guy leaving is one of the best players ever to come out of this state. Very natural to wonder who would replace him.
But thanks for posting to tell us you don't care.
Wow you really care !
It's been decades since Thayer produced any nhl players.
Adam Gaudette is in the league right now, but thanks for posting.
This is a hockey board. Some people who post here played prep school hockey and/or have kids could do. I am not sure I "care," but I am interested. I said that above. I guess you don't care, cool guy, which makes me wonder why you're posting on this thread. I suppose you have to do something to kill those 15 minutes before you get back to serving fries.
Lol. I actually went to Thayer. I certainly don't serve fries for a living. Im also not a dude.
Again I'm just surprised over this little obsession of the wonder of what next hockey dad will be the coach here.
And he speaks very highly of Amonte as well. Thayer produces very good players. Not as many as some, but more than others. Just take the L.
Who’s “obsessed”? As I said before, I am interested. That’s it. I guess Thayer didn’t help your reading comprehension. Thayer isn’t what it used to be, but as high school jobs go, it’s still relatively significant. Again, this is a hockey board. People discuss hockey here, except for the numerous trolls who come on here for reasons I don’t understand. What else are people supposed to talk about? Our favorite recipes?
Let me know if you need me to explain anything else to you, distinguished Thayer graduate.
Good luck ! Hope you get the job and turn the team around
You are legitimately an idiot. I knew Thayer wasn't Andover, but you give it a bad name. I did not apply for the job. As someone above noted, many people on this forum played high school and/or prep hockey and/or have kids who do. Therefore, they are interested in it.
The name of this forum is "high school and prep hockey." Since you're apparently too dumb to figure it out, I'll clue you in that the topic of conversation in this forum is usually high school and prep hockey. So when you come on a forum entitled "high school and prep hockey" and criticize people for talking about high school and prep hockey, that makes you the moron - not everyone else.
The way the Internet works is that if you don't want to talk about high school and prep hockey, don't come to a forum called "high school and prep hockey." You won't be missed.
I’m picking the next coach. No applications. No interviews.
Are there actually any quality U14/15 hockey players considering TA? Better question, is TA actually inviting any quality hockey players to go thru the process, aka recruited? Most of the 14/15 kids on the ice with their colors are midlings and/or check writers. Without Amonte’s draw, what do you have for a lure?
Announcement on new Thayer coach coming out today
i thought it was being announced last monday.
Has anything been announced? I don't really care who ends up coaching but I heard it will NOT be MM but another Thayer grad who is big on the hockey scene.
If they've made a decision why no announcement? What's the hold up ?
Make sure he accepts and signs contract.
still no announcement on this? Will there even be a coach this season?
why do people keep using initials? Just say the names already
