First time posting on here in awhile, but interested in hearing people's thoughts on the coaching search. I think it was a pretty big relief to see Comley on the committee...
I think that in order to sell the right kind of candidate on this committee the university needs to do a much better job selling the program as one with a rich history and good days ahead, instead of a program that is in danger of dying, as the perception on here can sometimes seem.
Looking forward to seeing how this all works out.
Anyone heard any candidate rumors?
Would Ron Rolston be of interest to NMU fans?
NTDP success similar to current hot candidate Danton Cole.
IMO, it's very unlikely there would be any announcement prior to the conclusion of the playoffs. Most hiring announcements start mid-to-late April.

Has anyone heard anything about former NMU player/assistant coach Morey Gare applying for the NMU job????
If NMU wants to turn the program around they need to make the financial commitment to get a high caliber, highly experienced coach, Pearson like. I'm wondering if Kyle didn't just become complacent due to the lack of commitment by the university? Sounds like he wasn't very highly compensated. As MTU has learned you've gotta throw some money at it!

It's going to take a fundamental change to the funding drive the athletic department does, as they see every team as equals. If a donation is made, even if it's earmarked for a specific sport, the funds get deposited into a general fund all sports teams withdraw from. Even if a dedicated financial commitment is granted to the hockey program, would there be an increase in donations with an unknown head coach?
And I think if Howard Schultz had some pocket change that he wanted to give to the hockey program, he would have by now. There have been some silent donations by former players for upgrades in the locker room and other much needed items.
