Welcome Mark! Sounds like his style of hockey will be a good fit for taking the Buckeyes to the next level.

This is an outstanding hire for OSU. Osiecki had been a top assistant at the NCAA level, a successful Tier I junior head coach and has a solid recruiting network. He's also someone the fans in Columbus will like, straight shooter, standup guy. The CCHA race just got a little tougher for the rest of the league.

That said will there be a new coach announced after this weekend? Casey Jones seems to be picking up steam.

The mighty Casey has struck out.

Good hire, for those not fam with coach Osiecki: http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/pdisplay.php?pid=4090

Welcome coach, I finally have a really good feeling about the future of the program.

Why was Paluch not ready? BG hasn't had a winning season since '96-'97 at 17-16-5. That says more about the BG program than it does Paluch individually.

The year before he was fired, BG went a respectable 18-21. Not sure what happened after that...

I talked to a couple of BG fans right after Paluch final game. They told me Paluch had basically lost control of the team. a couple of team members left mid season because of him.

OSU makes a good choice in Osiecki. Who will be his assistants?

I agree that you all got a good coach in Mark Osiecki. I watched him play and coach at Wisconsin, and I actually thought he wouldn't make a bad pick for Western Michigan's vacancy.

Sad to see him leave the Badgers, though.

Congrats to Oz and I'm sure that he will do a fantastic job at OSU. As a Badger fan I hate to see him go but he's too good of a coach to remain an assistant.

From USHR:

"We're getting two different reports on Gwozdecky's not being hired, one indicating his price tag was too high -- even for OSU -- and the other saying that he slept on it, and decided to stick with Denver. More likely, it was some combination of the two. And, of course, there could well be reasons we may never know of."

Heard reason number 1 from reliable sources. I love the choice they made, but hearing they wouldn't fully commit makes me a bit worried. Sounds like OSU is hoping flesh blood will get them somewhere without having to spend to get to elite status. I hope they are right!

One reason to not hire an Eastern candidate is the fact that their recruiting networks may not be congruent to the areas from which OSU traditionally is strong in that department.

Where would that be?

I believe damage has been done and feelings have been hurt between Gwoz and the DU athletic department in a stand off that has gone on for much longer than you elude to.

Major damage has not been done.

I was just thinking that...they're not good in any area in particular.

If this is true, OSU really blew it. OSU can afford him. My only guess he wanted all of his assistants with big multi-year contracts, OSU refused. Or he wanted 4 football tickets included, OSU refused. Or he wanted 100% backing from the athletic Dept. and was told. "we gave Markell 50% backing...at best. but we'll give you 70%."

610 usually talks Blue Jacket hockey on Sundays between 11:00 and noon, I wonder if they will touch on Osiecki.

Playing for Osiecki has got to have the d-men excited.

This should be a good hire for OSU. Looking at what he had done with the D at Wisconsin and the success he has had everywhere he has been is very encouraging. I have heard a lot of positive things about him. I look for him to eliminate the selfish play that plagued this team in past years under Markell. Did he announce any assistants yet? Is he keeping either of the current guys?
