Replying to the bolded part, channeling John McEnroe "You cannot be serious?"You never like to see it end the wrong way. I’m incredibly proud of what we’ve done here. I know that when we arrived, we were on our way out of having any relevance in Division I hockey, and we got it back to having a really strong six or seven years in the NCAA Tournament, top 15 in the country. Unfortunately we struggled through the last three years, and that led to the decision today.

WRPI, 91.5 FM...usually color commentary.
At least most of the coaches mentioned know how to recruit in the northeast and have had a high profile throughout the region. The current staff was totally invisible to high school, prep and junior players (and worst of all - their advisors) throughout the northeast - and therefore RPI was therefore never even an option for most players within a 5 hour drive of Troy.
Something tells me SA had some insight on the matter as well, I don't know if he is always up tight about 50-50 calls but he wouldn't stop giving it to the ref, instantly when he saw a potential call you would hear him scream the call he thought the ref should be making about 15-20 times Saturday night. He's always so calm in postgame interviews and in the few experiences I've seen him coach in person I don't think I've ever heard yell at the refs but I don't go to every RPI game so maybe that's not that case. Continuous screams of "wake up" came Friday night although I think any coach would be screaming that with how RPI was playing, maybe I'm off on this but his calming presence seemed to be non-existent, maybe it was a last ditch effort? I do feel bad for SA but to be honest Clarkson were in a similar situation not too long ago and I wanted Roll gone, best wishes to SA and his family and I'm sure he will find his feet.
Can't thank @SethAppert enough. Helped my dreams come true and start a career. Tremendous person and coach. See you at the rink soon.— Jeremy Coupal (@JeremyCoupal) March 7, 2017
Although there may be others, it might be saying something that I only found two former players who tweeted about it.
