    Or maybe whoever the new coach is will bring in someone who he already recruited for his old school.

    Anything is possible but I wouldn't expect that.

    Now... let the speculation begin... Alum? D1 assistant? D3 head that looks promising? I for one would like to see someone with ties to the Northeast. It's absurd that Troy is 30 minutes from Mass and yet we can't seem to get any recruits from New England. We should average 1 recruit a season from one of CT, RI or MA in my opinion.
    Considering the program's hideous performance on and off the ice, I don't feel bad. At all.

    so much for the widely-held belief that "Appert isn't going anywhere"

    We've engaged Parker Executive Search to find a coach? ??? How about picking a few alums... maybe even Fridge and letting them figure it out. You can't tell me that there is some type of consulting service that actually knows something about coaching hockey!

    Here's a D3 suggestion: Gary Heenan (Utica College). He put that program on the map, went to an academically challenging school, and is from NY. We need someone that can rebuild the program and also build community interest. That is exactly what Heenan did there.

    USCHO story says "Appert guided the Engineers to a 10-18-8 record in 2016-17."

    I thought we finished 8-28-1 this season (I'd gladly take the 2 extra wins, 10 fewer losses and 7 additional ties, but it probably wouldn't have saved Appert's job).

    Here's my list of possible candidates although the search should start and end with Ben Barr:

    RPI must have some generous donors. Didn't Appert have a contract through the 20-21 season?

    I'm not filled with confidence.

    They are off by 10 years. We were 10-18-8 in 06-07.
