What about Steve Rohlik as a candidate?

When MG was brought back, those cries died down quickly for most.

I personally doubt that Hastings would leave UNO. Blais is going to be done relatively soon.

Hastings will be the next UNO coach, and the Blais/tDon thing was the supposed clause in Blais' contract allowing him to be the next MN coach if tDon left (which was complete horsehockey, IMO; totally an urban legend).

And yes, when MG came back, things were going to okay for at least a year, depending on results. Which, I might add, are favorable, no matter what happens after Thursday.

Very interesting name. I would imagine he'd be contacted without a doubt.

No, but I gathered they've been getting a lot of calls. I think they knew.

They still had some left?!? I'd imagine the ticket office there is similar to Munchkinland after that house landed on that broad

Since this hasn't been posted here yet....


Dan Myers ‏ @MyersHockey

Eades says he is "very interested" in the Mankato gig.


Shane Frederick ‏ @puckato
RT @SchlossmanGF: Eades says he's very happy at UND, but these opportunities don't come up very often and he needs to look closely at it.

And this one out of nowhere....

Dan Myers ‏ @MyersHockey
Just asked former NHLer and Tampa Asst Wes Walz if he's interested in MSU gig. "Would be very interested, but I don't have a degree."

I have been told Eades is wanted, badly. He's the leader in the clubhouse right now.

I also was told today it sounds like they want a coach as quickly as possible to keep what may be their best recruiting class ever.

If Eades really is that interested, and if I were Mankato's AD, he'd already be booked for an interview at 9 AM Monday. I'd want to go after someone truly interested in the position, and with the qualifications to hang onto that highly touted freshman class.

Even as a fan of a different program, I think the nWCHA would be that much stronger as a conference with a coach like Eades leading MSUM.

There are so many great coaches who don't have degrees. Wes Walz would make a great coach. IMO, some of these guys should earn a degree.;)

I agree with you one hundred percent. Of we could somehow find a way to get Eades, I'd be so happy with our university it would be crazy. No to mention how excited id be with the talent I have coming back.

MANKATO — If all goes perfectly, the Minnesota State men’s hockey team could have a new coach in a little more than two weeks.

“My goal, my self-imposed deadline is before school gets out,” MSU athletic director Kevin Buisman said. “That’s an absolute, sort of an outside limit.”

The last day of classes at the university is April 27, with finals week scheduled for April 30-May 5.

However, Buisman said it would be ideal to have a coach in place by the time the American Hockey Coaches Association convention and conference meetings take place a bit earlier in Naples, Fla.

The convention is April 26-29, with Western Collegiate Hockey Association coaches meetings on April 25. Buisman said he will attend other WCHA meetings scheduled for April 28-30.

“There could be a lot of twists and turns along the way, but it would be nice to be down at those very important meetings with our new head coach,” he said.

The job opening was posted on the Minnesota State website Wednesday, three days after coach Troy Jutting was removed as head coach and reassigned to an administrative role. Officials may begin reviewing applicants Tuesday.

Buisman credited MSU President Richard Davenport for helping expedite the process. Davenport said he will be closely involved with the search, which will remain open until a coach is hired. University officials also have begun identifying candidates that they believe will be good fits.

“We don’t want to be hasty about it,” Buisman said. “This is a defining moment for the program.”

Since Jutting was removed Sunday, Buisman said most of his working hours have been spent on the search for a replacement.

“It’s fair to say there’s been a lot of interest,” Buisman said. “The eyes of college hockey are upon us. What we believed to be true has been affirmed by the interest.”

During Monday’s press conference explaining the decision to reassign Jutting to an administrative role after 12 seasons as coach, Jutting, Buisman and Davenport all made the case that the opening would attract a variety of interest.

Indeed, names of potential candidates have begun to surface, including a few prominent WCHA assistant coaches.

The Mavericks had the top-scoring freshman class in the WCHA last season, led by the team’s leading scorer, Matt Leitner, and conference all-rookie selection Jean-Paul LaFontaine.

They also have an incoming recruiting class of eight players that includes at least two top-end forward prospects, Teddy Blueger of Shattuck-St. Mary’s in Faribault and Bryce Gervais, who was one of the top goal scorers in the British Columbia Hockey League.

Currently, Mavericks associate head coach Darren Blue and assistant coach Todd Knott are running the hockey operations. They’re monitoring spring workouts with the current players, communicating with incoming recruits and making other preparations for next season.

Also from the Free Press, the list:


MANKATO — Kevin Buisman said he had a short list of potential candidates to be the next coach of the Minnesota State men’s hockey team. While the MSU athletic director is keeping that list close to the vest, that hasn’t stopped the speculation about who might end up getting the job.

“I’m confident the names being bandied about are the kind of coaches we can attract for this job,” Buisman said. “They’re not out of the realm of possibility in terms of candidates for this opportunity.”

Following is a look at potential candidates, some of whom just might be on that short list:

Mike Guentzel, Minnesota associate head coach: Minnesota State is the only Division I team with a vacancy right now, but Guentzel would be at the top of anyone’s list. After three years away and stops with three different teams, the longtime Gophers assistant returned to his alma mater and helped them reach the Frozen Four (Minnesota was eliminated by Boston College on Thursday). He seems content at Minnesota but has said recently that he wants to be a head coach.

Cary Eades, North Dakota associate head coach: Eades is the only person who has been public about applying for the MSU job and is interested. He has been at North Dakota, his second stint on the bench for his alma mater, since 2004. He also won three state titles coaching Warroad High School and also was a successful junior coach in Dubuque, Iowa, for two years.

Mike Hastings, Nebraska-Omaha associate head coach: There’s been speculation that Hastings is the heir apparent in Omaha when Dean Blais retires. But when will that happen? Hastings has been with the red Mavericks for three seasons and spent one season on the bench at Minnesota. He was also a successful junior coach with the Omaha Lancers where he became all-time winningest coach in USHL history.

John Harrington, former St. John’s head coach: Harrington’s name has come up several times since MSU’s coaching change. A member of the 1980 Miracle on Ice Olympic team, Harrington spent 15 seasons with the Division III Johnnies. He has also been a Division I assistant at Denver and St. Cloud State. Harrington was a one of three finalists for the job when Troy Jutting was hired in 2000 (current Minnesota Duluth coach Scott Sandelin was the other).

Tom Ward, Shattuck-St. Mary’s School prep coach/hockey director: Ward has coached some of the best players to play college hockey over the last 10 years — as well as NHL star Sidney Crosby — at the Faribault hockey factory. Current Maverick Eli Zuck played for him, as did future MSU players Teddy Blueger and Ryan Schwalbe, who just led the Sabres to the USA Hockey 18 & Under national title.

Others of note: Derek Lalonde, head coach/general manager, Green Bay Gamblers (USHL); Steve Rohlik, associate head coach, Ohio State; Eric Rud, assistant coach, Colorado College.

Hastings (and probably Mike G) are not going anywhere.
