Just wondering, in this age of commits/de-commits, if this insanity has finally made its way to the coaching level?
"Providence has hired Joel Beal to replace Kris Mayotte. Beal had recently taken assistant job at Bentley."
The man just accepted the Bentley job in July and now in August he bails presumably so he can move up to Hockey East and work for his old coach. Is there no loyalty anymore to giving someone your word?? If players have to sit out a year shouldn't coaches?
I understand it. Going to 2nd place Bentley was a step up from 7th place Miami (conference rankings). It's also a pretty specialized profession as I don't imagine you can just walk down the street and find a college coach. Someone else lost out on a job opportunity that this person took and the team is left short staffed right as the season is gearing up. I hope there was a headhunter fee paid so Bentley gets a full refund.
First off he didn't leave Miami to go to Bentley. No one goes to Atlantic Hockey as a step up. He was fired from Miami when the head coach was let go and the new guy brought in his staff. So where's the loyalty in that? Where's the school "keeping it's word". All the faux outrage when someone moves on a timeline that you don't approve of is a joke. I'm sure every assistant in atlantic hockey applied for the PC job.
We are a loooooong ways away from College but what happens to the early recruits that a coaching staff has if they leave the school, can the incoming staff change their minds and the kids end up "back on the market"?
