    Re: BU season thread volume 3.1 cause board/priceless/tippycanoe deleted ours

    Dear Supporters of BU Hockey,

    Thank you for your ongoing support of BU Hockey. As you likely know by now, David Quinn has accepted the head coaching position with the New York Rangers. David returned to his alma mater as our head coach five years ago, and I am grateful for how hard he and his coaching staff have worked and for how well they have represented BU. Four NCAA Tournaments, two Hockey East titles and one national championship game appearance are a great legacy of success! Please join me in wishing David well in the NHL and rooting for his future success.

    With that said, we respectfully turn our attention to our bright future. Our objective will not change: we expect to be among the very best programs in college hockey, year in and year out, and to contend for the national championship. I am confident we will attract a premier coach who embraces those expectations and helps our student-athletes fulfill their goals. This is a time where your support of our hockey program, our athletic department and our university shines through to prospective candidates, so I want to take a moment and acknowledge your commitment to BU, which will help us accomplish what we will achieve in the future.

    Our search for our next head coach already has begun and we will be in touch as we progress through this process. We will find the next person to continue the proud tradition that is BU Hockey and I look forward to introducing our next head coach to you soon.

    Once again, we appreciate your support of Terrier Hockey. Go BU!

    Sincerely,
    Drew


    -nice touch

    Fox 25 just posted on Facebook, "The head coach of the hockey team at Boston University is saying goodbye to the Bulldogs and hello to the Rangers!"

    Saying "We didn't want him anyway, 'cause he's a jerk" when you lose a prize recruit to your chief rival is in Chapter One of the "How to be a Raging Fanboy" Guide book. Just. Don't.

    But did we "lose" him to BC if we didn't recruit him? There was little to no indication that BU made any effort to recruit him.

    Agreed on the annoying parents, but the coachability is pretty darn important.

    Saw on Twitter that Weiss found a new home at UNO. Hope he does well there.

    Knew that was coming- unkown on why it was happening who was unhappy- Player or BU
    Could it have been an admissions issue- Was not a factor in under 18 tourney but neither was DeBoer

    A BU commit having to go elsewhere. Somewhere Agganis is weeping in a corner.

    True but easier to deal with if only have him for a short time. Plus I am not sure I am buying the he's not coachable angle. Who has reported that? Just because his parents might be a pain doesn't make him uncoachable.

    It could never be that BU found someone better. They would never do that!

    How many BC recruits are looking elsewhere right now?

    Admissions is what I had heard a while back.

    I'll be surprised if it's not one of Albie, Sacco, Pandolfo, Donatelli, with Greeley as a long shot.

    I don't understand the Greeley stuff. He's an assistant GM for the Sabres. He wants to be a GM, not a college head coach.

    I also don't see Albie as a head coach. I think the best possible outcome for BU is to bring Sacco in and keep Albie as the associate head coach. This ensures continuity as much as possible while also having a sort of big name as head coach (as big as we're going to get this time around).
