"The national search will begin immediately, there's already been a few phone calls," Tech Athletic Director Suzanne Sanregret said. "We will officially post it (the coaching position) on Monday.

"We will conduct the search very thoroughly. Of course we want to get someone in here as soon as possible, but we will take our time to make sure we get the right person, so that we can ensure the future success of the program."

But will the school be willing to put up the money needed to bring in a big-name coach. According to Sanregret, finances should not be an issue."I'm very fortunate (Tech President) Glenn Mroz understands the big picture of things and he's given me the authority to use resources to go after the best coach," Sanregret said. "We're also fortunate that we have many alums who understand that as well, so the commitment is there as well as the resources."



Who is Tech capable of hiring if they put up the money?

I beg you to go get Doug Woog. That would be amazing!

I think some MN alumni would pay Tech to hire him away.

Current Vacancies:

Michigan State (vice Comley)
Penn State (new)
Providence (vice Army)
Mass Lowell (vice MacDonald)
Michigan Tech (vice Russell)

MSU and PSU are #'s 1 and 2. Where do you put MTU in the priority list?

Here's an article from the Marquette Mining Journal on the Tech situation:

to sum up this article : what Tech needs is to be more like Northern.

I'm going to be sick.

Check the win totals & conference tournament appearances over the last 20 years. It might not be a bad idea.

Obviously any team in the country has had more success in the last 20 years than Tech. But the strength of schedule is miles apart vs. NMU, these are two categories you don't want to bring up to compare them. Stick with head-to-head, or NHL players, or something else to make the point.
I think recent, successful head coaching experience should be pretty high on the priority list. Without specific applicants to go by, I'd favor a head coach from USHL over D1 assistant. But that all gets thrown out when you find out who actually applies for the job.
