    He indicated he was up late answering texts from UM alumni hockey players and The Michigan Tech faithful. He said Tech comments ranged from being sad, happy and mad.

    He bragged about our d-Corp this year and mentioned how we lost Pheonix and Angus early. Also said we had some **** good hockey players during his tenure.

    Take a listen, it might help to soothe the vitriol. I have calmed down a bit now making it to step 3 in the grieving process. On a positive note, I plan to skip step 4 entirely and go right to step 5 when the Huskies announce a great selection for this upcoming season.
    Despite my fondness for Mel, I can never root for UM unless they are playing North Dakota, St. Cloud, or Miami (OH).
    Can't find it. Can you post the link to the interview?

    Like I have said, I have no clue about this whole process, but what about Muckalt with Ellsworth as assistant?

    Sorry I am 48, and make the occasional inadvertent typo.

    Also Tech engineers outnumber Michigan engineers at my work by a 2-1 margin🇫🇮😀

    With the position Tech is in, it will be interesting to see which direction they go. They proved with Mel that they are willing to make things happen.

    Re: Michigan Tech Off-season Revised - Onward and Upward

    I really like the idea of Muckalt as the HC with Ellsworth and Shawhan as assistants. That way if Muckalt leaves in a few years Ellsworth could step in. I really really like coach Shawhan and the value he brings to the program, however I'm not sold as him as the head coach. For whatever reason I've never been a fan of Shuchuk so it won't hurt my feelings if he is not part of the future of Michigan Tech Hockey.

    I'm sure the HC will have full control over assistant hires. Ellsworth seems great, but has Muckalt ever even met him?

    I think its possible, I'm sure they've crossed paths on the recruiting trail...especially over the last 2 years with Ellsworth recruiting players from Tri-City like freshman Mattias Goransson...

    Yeah, it feels unlikely that you'd just get those three guys together whom THG has floated as possibilities.

    The one thing I see with that is both Ellsworth and Shawhan are goalies and goalie coaches, not that that's bad, but I think it is good to have someone with offensive, someone with defensive and someone with goalie experience as coaches.

    For "offensive" experience, I nominate John Scott. Seriously, is he available?

    Maybe we should ask Scott what he thinks of Rolston?

    Exclamation Re: Michigan Tech Off-season Revised - Onward and Upward

    If you have a feeling of deja-vu about all of this like I do, it's because we've had 8 head coaches during Red Berenson's reign as Michigan's HC...

    So? Red proved himself worthy of a career tenure. Those 8 Tech coaches either failed, or quickly moved on after enjoying a handful of years of upward success.

    It's 2017, and we're not a destination. As Don Henley sang 23 years ago, "Get over it". Hire the best coach we can get for the duration.

    And the skunkies had 5 coaches from 1973 to 1984. I'm sure you realize that a guy who spends 33 years in a job is the exception rather than the rule.

    Re: Michigan Tech Off-season Revised - Onward and Upward

    So after all the discussion at the coaches convention, get back to campus, sort the resumes, choose the interviews and then select the finalists.
    Has anyone heard of a search committee assisting? I would assume the sentiment of the top candidates is now known.

    What would you feel about how much longer the wait will be until the scheduling of a press conference?

    Last time it wasn't until June. Suzanne needs to make sure she's covering all her bases.

    I know and I agree that she needs to do her due diligence, but I'm just an impatient kind of guy.
