USCHO article dated 4/19/06 when SA was hired http://www.uscho.com/2006/04/19/rens...rt-head-coach/. It mentions that Dan Fridgen quit on 3/21/06. I didn't realize that it took less than a month to hire SA. Does it usually go that fast?
I confided in Ralph earlier this season that I would be leaving this board until such time as we replaced the coach. Well I'm back. Never happy to see someone lose a job but this was well past the expiration date. I wish SA all the best in his next venture, I'm sure he will land on his feet. He may be a nice guy from all I have read with his community service, but he was not a good hockey coach. Now hopefully we can find the right someone who can get the players to congeal as a team rather than a helter-skelter of individuals. Here's hoping to soon see the boys skating at Lake Placid and beyond . . . .

WaP article on SA being fired. http://www.withoutapeer.com/2017/03/turning-point.html
Appert got that big extension so he wouldn't jump to Denver in 2o13. Appert had been at DU and Montgomery had been at RPI. Think Pioneers won the coaching Derby with Monty.
GO DU !!!
If they want to go the former Engineer route what about Kirk MacDonald?
Have we ever actually fired a hockey coach before? I don't think so.
Seth Appert didn't win as much at RPI as fans wanted, but he represented school w/ class. Tough place to win in modern era of college hockey— Jeff Cox (@JeffCoxSports) March 6, 2017
Good grief. There are currently 62 people reading this thread.
Sad to hear RPI has let go of Seth Appert. There are a few truly insightful and great people I've met in hockey and Seth is one of them.— Joe Yerdon (@JoeYerdon) March 6, 2017
