Looks like on NCAA Market there is no longer a posting of UVM head coaching position, wonder if we are close to an announcement....
Word out of Maine is that UVM will be speaking to Maria Lewis about the Coaching job...thats as of Friday.
Word out of Burlington is that the field is down to a final five that will be interviewed next week.
I BELIEVE in our 'CATS!

Wow, that article makes it sound like Maine's program is on shaky ground. Surprised that the local paper would cast the University in such negative way ... altho good to tell the truth.... but gotta hurt recruiting.
It's no secret to anyone that follows the program that Maine is on the ultimate shoe-string budget. They were one of the last schools to get a 2nd full-time assistant, and to this day probably pay all of three of their coaches the lowest salary among their peers in the entire sport...low enough that as I said before most if not all head coaches in Hockey East make more than all 3 Maine coaches combined. For a couple seasons they were able to take a single flying trip a year but they have not done so over the last two seasons...combine that with the fact they actually cancelled a trip out west at the 11th hour of Lewis' first year shows that the admin has probably told them they can't take those trips anymore.
Certainly easy to understand why they are having trouble filling their schedule.
Got to imagine Kimball is in the mix somewhere.
