    I checked the yearbooks for the four years he would have been at RPI and he is not in any of them. However, no one had #24, the number in the picture, his frosh year, so he could have worn it.

    he's not in the hockeydb either, at all, having no hockey experience, prior to, or during his collegiate days. His twitter bio does include himself as an "RPI grad and RPI hockey alum"....

    Does anyone know what the responsibilities are of the company hired for the coach choice? I can't believe that they will make the decision of whom to hire, so is it just soliciting applications? I would think that anyone who could remotely be interested in the job would know that there is a vacancy. Conceivably there are some possible candidates whom might waver on whether or not to apply due to any of many factors, and some might be worth trying to convince.

    Mostly vetting and ranking possible candidates. He could have told them to explore other avenues, such as pulling a coach away that was not initially interested.

    In the end though, any coach truly worth his salt is going to ask what is going to be the commitment to funding and I do not just mean his salary.

    Judging by the difference in the teams play, I have to believe that it was much more than missing practices.
    I have to believe that it was much more team related. Either he had a problem with Perry coming in or he started to blame his teammates for the game results.
    I have no evidence of either, just a guess on my part.

    Probably something similar to a job recruiter or human resources representative... they're given basic qualification needs from us, and after a "telephone screening", they are then setup with an interview with Dr. McElroy and company.

    Was just thinking about candidates for the vacant RPI coaching position. What about Paul Pearl, Associate Head Coach at Harvard? No one can deny Harvard's resurgence in the last three years since he has been there helping with recruiting and setting the defence.

    Re: RPI 2017 Off-Season: We March 4th into the Future

    -Shouldn't the department have some names in mind that they want the firm to look at/talk to? As a hockey fan, it is easy to think of a quality list: Barr(umass), O'Connell(BU), Brown(BC), Keefe(Northeastern), Pearl(Harvard), Syer(Cornell), Riga (Qpac), Dumais(Qpac), Muse(Chicago-USHL), Lammers(Dubuque-USHL), Cole(USNTDP). Most of these guys are coaching in the Northeast, or have coached there with success in the past. Cole because of the USNTDP experience

    -And this doesn't even include the list of pro/AHL coaches that have college/Northeast experience: Kleinendorst(Binghamton), Lalonde(Iowa), Dean(Providence)

    I still think Adam Oates gets the first phone call - even just as a courtesy. No expectations, but what a recruiting hook it would be to be able to play for one of the best face-off / assist guys in the history of the game.

    My surmise is that they would perform background checks, for one thing. We've seen a few stories from time to time in sports in general about coaches who made claims about their education and achievements that were later found to be, um, "unverifiable."

    They probably also help with scheduling and logistics; the nuts and bolts stuff of who talks to whom when, by phone or face to face, how do they get there for the latter, etc.
