Coach McShane is retiring.
Congratulations to him on a legendary career. Wishing him in the best in his retirement.

When I saw there was an announcement this crossed my mind, but I'm still a bit surprised by it. I thought we would have at least a season to ponder what life would be like without McShane and where Norwich hockey goes after him. Guess we'll find out sooner than I thought.
So where does Mattson rank on the list of possible replacements? I don't really know the politics and expectations of coaching hires. Is it his job to lose or is the expectation to bring in a bigger name with (more? I don't know his history) head coaching experience?

Shocked there is not more reaction in here ... this is only one of the ten greatest coaches in college hockey history!
Any insight whether Norwich will go with a top D1 assistant or maybe someone like Salve's Zech Klann who must be considered one of the top D3 coaches in the country. In any event I will miss the McShane run and the excellent job he did coaching Norwich hockey. Any coach with NAHL recruiting connections would be a plus.

They should take care to make sure they get this right. Norwich hockey is an elite program because of one man. He didnít do it alone, but he picked the helpers. From 1909-1995, it was a mediocre program (ONE banner in those rafters pre-dates MM). Itís critical to get the right guy in there. Iím very pleased that Coach is going to play a big role in choosing his successor; no one else on the announced committee is qualified.
My first thought was Dominick Dawes (NU 04) at Stevenson. But, I heard he loves it there and isnít going anywhere. Weíll see

Could the wrong person be retiring? Geez, I hope this is done right and not in haste.
Never been a big fan of AD; critical of his inability to build more than one consistently successful mainstream sport.
