Also, Quinn/BU and Jackson/ND still have games to play.

Not that you shouldn't rule them out anyway.

So in all seriousness. Clearly we rule out the 4 coaches still in, not only because they are still playing, but because common sense (Madigan would be the only one who you might have considered at Christmas from this group, but hes a NU guy through and through). So that leaves

Jeff Jackson - Obvious no
Dave Quinn - They don't sell his hair gel out in Western Mass
Mark Dennehy - Obvious choice for UMass to at least interview, been discussed pretty thoroughly throughout the thread
Mike Cavanaugh - Is there anything UMass does better than UConn? I guess if Cav wants to learn to flip cars and drink profusely.
Sneddon - This would be interesting, he was extended last summer if I remember correctly. UVM vs UMass is a push
Dick Umile - It'll take at least double the years to reach 600, and according to the UNH thread thats why he is still sticking around anyways
Red Gendron - Just signed an extension

So Dennehy, Gendron, Sneddon?

Tim Whitehead it is!!!:D

Except, you know, BU IS still in. They're playing next weekend.

if Umile is only sticking around to get to 600 wins, shame on him

Maybe (hopefully) he's taking a mulligan over passing up the UMass job 16 years ago ...

* Bonus points for anyone picking out another current HE coach name-dropped at the time. :D

*applause* best reason on the list

It won't be Tim, at least not yet. He's building a strong program at Kimball Union and is bringing in talent. In a few years he may be ready to leave and will be sought after.

Where he can promptly run a third program into the ground. :D

I really hope Dennehy is not your guy. I know UMass can pay more but I just really hope Merrimack can hang on to him. He's the only reason the program is even relevant

According to Mike McMahon, Bennett's out. Once again, UMass moves on to Plan B. This time, where it stops, no one knows!

Wow. That's quite the prediction. "There will be things that happen in the next 4-6 weeks that will surprise you!"

I predict a team with white on its uniforms will be at the Frozen Four.
