Looks like Scott McDonald is out at RIT, announced today on the team site. Lots of issues in the last few years. Hopefully the replacement can bring the program back to respectability.

In the mean time, I would expect one of the assistants to be named interim head coach and handle those duties for the season as sort of an audition while the "national search" goes through the season and into the early off season and the musical chairs game gets underway in the coaching ranks.
Skate every shift like its your last

Scott was not forced to resign. He has a job in another field (that is what I am told). No scholarship, no transfer rule and high tuition costs. RIT Women's hockey is a challenging position. The Men's team has been struggling at times as well with the no scholarship, high tuition costs and playing in what many consider the lowest skilled league. There are some major barriers for both programs. A president who is not happy with the amount of money going into the hockey programs and losing seasons. The future is a bit uncertain.

I just went to the RIT website and found this about the Women's Hockey Coach position:
Assuming he was at least at the midpoint of this salary range, he must have found a really good regular job to have left that kind of a salary behind! I don't know much about it but that seems like quite a healthy salary range for a coach at a D3 school. Is it because it's a D1 team? Would the salary be the same if they were running a D3 hockey program?
