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.
Sorry to see Seth Appert go. He was one of the best coaches in the league to work with as a sportswriter. Always friendly win, loss or tie— Cap Carey (@CapCareyWDT) March 6, 2017

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.
