Well, I think Michigan Tech's search for a new coach deserves its own thread and here it is...at the top of my list is Cary Eades, Associate Head Coach at North Dakota.
Cary Eades is in his 14th season on the Fighting Sioux coaching staff, having served two different stints under head coaches Dave Hakstol and John "Gino" Gasparini.
Eades was promoted to associate head coach prior to the 2006-07 season after serving as an assistant in his first year.

Involved in all aspects of the Sioux program, Eades' responsibilities with UND include coaching the power play, an area in which he has a great deal of expertise as both a coach and player. The Sioux have led the WCHA in power-play efficiency twice (2008-09 & 2006-07) and ranked third last season despite the absence of injured All-America defenseman Chay Genoway. UND's power-play has also ranked among the top seven nationally in three of the last five years under Eades.

In addition to his UND coaching duties, Eades is heavily involved with USA Hockey. He has worked numerous national festivals and in August 2006, he was named head coach for USA Hockey's Under-17 team that participated in the Three Nation's Tournament in Rochester, N.Y.

Prior to joining the UND staff in 2004, Eades spent the previous 11 seasons (from 1994 to 2004) as head coach of the boys hockey team at Warroad (Minn.) High School. A former UND player, Eades led Warroad to three Minnesota state class "A" championships and posted a 237-62-6 (.787) overall record.

This is Eades' second stint on the UND coaching staff. Eades previously was an assistant coach for the 1987 NCAA and WCHA champion Sioux while serving as a member of former UND head coach Gino Gasparini's staff for seven seasons (1984-91).

Prior to that, Eades played hockey at North Dakota for four seasons (1978-82), playing on two UND national championship teams (1980 and 1982) and three WCHA championship teams (1979, 1980, 1982). He was UND's team captain his senior season (1981-82).

Eades played in 144 games for the Sioux, scoring 85 goals and 79 assists for 164 points. His 85 career goals are tied for ninth on the all-time Sioux list. UND compiled a 117-47-3 record during Eades four years of college. After his college playing career, Eades played professional hockey for two seasons in the St. Louis Blues organization.

At Warroad, Eades led his team to seven Section 8 championships and two state runnerup finishes in addition to the three state championships. He was the 1996 Minnesota State High School Coach of the Year and a three-time Section 8 Coach of the Year.

Prior to taking over at Warroad, Eades spent two seasons as general manager and coach of the Dubuque Fighting Saints of the United States Hockey League. The Saints qualified for the national junior tournament both seasons under Eades and were the 1993 national junior champions. At Dubuque, Eades posted an overall win/loss record of 86-46-7 (.647).

Eades' family includes his wife, Dana, and his children, Alexandra (17), Edward (14) and Erica (12).

I agree, he really deserves to step up and get a chance at head coaching since Hakstol isn't going anywhere soon.

The only person who being head coach of Michigan Tech would be a step up for is the guy who cleans the monkey cages at the zoo.

Fabulous resume, but I could recruite into North Dakota. Can he bring some solid players to Houghton that is the question. Really hard to know and would he want to leave a great progam where he played his hockey?????

I don't think Hill could do a worse job, so what's to lose?

Eades' family includes his wife, Dana, and his children, Alexandra (17), Edward (14) and Erica (12).

Relocation would be very tough for the two youngest kids at their ages. In one respect, Eades would really have to lust for a head coach slot to uproot his kids now rather than waiting a few years for them to finish high school with their friends. If he is a father before he is a coach, he has to think long and hard about the effect of moving on his children.

I put in a good word as I passed him on my way out of Reid's on Saturday (aka, I begged him to be our coach). Luckily, both of us were drunk, and he was ****ed that they wouldn't let him in after bar close. Pretty sure Yager had a conversation with him and didn't even realize who he was

Lets start throwing out some names of assistants in the WCHA or other major conferences that would like the opportunity to become a Head Coach. Eades may be the guy on paper, but is he willing to leave?

I would also not mind Steve Rohlik. He's a proven recruiter from a smaller, successful WCHA school; now has about 10 years experience as an assistant. I wanted Dean Blais when he was available two years ago- everyone laughed. Look where we are now, two years of five wins or less, coachless, and trying to offer the money for a reputable coach. Pay em and they will come.

Great choice. I already miss his recruiting of Camrose.

More importantly, I'd help pay his salary at MTU. It's a win-win:

MTU gets a proven WCHA assistant coach who studied under a two-time national title-winning coach(I'm not saying what he's proven; that's up to interpretation ;))
More money for MTU to pay for their new coach

I see nothing but good to come of this.

I would like Cary Eades but i would prefer a guy with head coach ambitions not a lifetime assistant coach.

I like proven head coaches. I wish tech would have got Dean Blaise or Jeff Jackson in the past when they were looking to get back in college hockey.

Ron Rolston has a lot of experience. He works with the best 18 year olds in the country with the USA-18 team. He has coached as Harvard and LSSU. He is a tech alum with great working credentials. Ron is my choice he can bring the best young talent to houghton.

With the future landscape of small town college hockey MTU could use a Michigan born guy as head coach.
