Really strange in retrospect now, with assistant coach Blaise MacDonald having just moved to Colby.

It sounds like he was politely canned. Was his contract up, or is he receiving a buyout?

^I doubt it, but I would have said the same words yesterday if you had told me Cahoon was going to resign.

Sources speculated that Cahoon was upset about his perceived lack of support from the athletic department administration. With the University's impending move to the Football Bowl Subdivision and the Mid-America Conference, as well as the continued emphasis on men's basketball, it's believed that Cahoon perceived his program was not getting fair treatment.

That institutional support thing might be an issue... On the other hand an opportunity is an opportunity knowing that it may give the chance to succeed Jack or Jerry.

On the other hand, for as long as umass outspent lowell on hockey it really rings hollow to me.

Blaise had to know it was coming and that he was not going to be a candidate. Thus a lame duck, so opportunity to take a head job was best thing on the table. Just a hunch!

Just a hunch!Last week I couldn't think why MacDonald would go down in Div. Hockey,but he must of known all along that there was stuff on the Horizon for UMass Hockey,and himself.

You joking, right? There's a better chance we'll all be on the Moon by Friday noontime, than Toot taking over the BC job.

I would agree. I suspect Cahoon was asked to resign or be fired.
