    Bob Emery announces retirement

    Just read a couple of post from friends of Coach Emery who announced his retirement. Now any ideas who the next coach for Plattsburgh State is going to be?

    Re: Bob Emery announces retirement

    I know that is popular opinion but I was wondering if anyone has any ideas for other candidates.

    I'd be surprised if they gave anyone else serious consideration...

    The local sports talk radio station, 101.3 The Game is reporting this as well. I always thought they brought Moffat back because the school knew this was coming, but would there be any reason they have to post the job as open?

    Also, for those of us that remember the Cardinal program he took over, which did not have a pristine reputation in the community, he did as much to clean up the program's image off the ice as he did winning on it. Thank you, Coach Emery, and good luck with future endeavors!

    Come on this is 2019.....you cant just "pick" your coach/teacher anymore....you don't want to upset the snowflakes. They have to go through the process.

    Being a state school, rules dictate they have to publicly post the position and do a "proper" search. Of course, that doesn't mean the decision can't be a foregone conclusion ... nudge, nudge, wink, wink.

    That's what I was hinting at I guess. I suppose the people that might apply already knows whether this is the case or not....

    Moffatt is most definitely the front-runner at the start, but it wouldn’t surprise me at all if one or two interested candidates were of a caliber that is hard to turn down.

    He didn’t have a great record as head coach over at Castleton. Not sure about the whole situation there. I just hope the school selects the best candidate.

    Congrats Coach on a great career ... thanks for getting the folks at Primelink interested in sponsoring the tournament that bares their name.
    Amazing ... the big three ... Beaney ... McShane ... now Emery ... all gone! The end of an era!

    Based on his results at Castleton, and Plattsburgh’s recent results (I don’t know if he’s the “lead recruiter”), might be wise for the Cardinals to do a thorough search. Worst case, you know you have an in-house candidate at the ready.

    This has nothing to do with "snowflakes" - get a life. State institutions have requirements for job postings and candidate selection set by the legislature. Interim hires can be made "on the fly," but long term positions must be posted. Most private schools have those kinds of requirements as well. In fact, almost every job in this country has a specified hiring process. This also ensures that possibly candidates who don't come immediately to mind for a position get an opportunity.

    Re: Bob Emery announces retirement

    Many of my Hockey friends including myself have been around for many years of Laker, Plattsburgh battles. Always on the edge of your seats. Coach Emery was responsible for much hair pulling in the OZ. Great epic battles. He was earlier referred to as the “Laker killer”. He has been a brilliant coach.. Many of us if the truth be known could not stand to hear his name even mentioned.
    So let me tell you why we here in the OZ started to change. Two years ago when our Coach’s wife passed away from fighting Ovarian Cancer for a long time we met a different Coach Emery. We knew he was on the phone with Coach Gosek every week about Mary. We knew he contributed heavy to Mary’s foundation. On the day of services for Mary it rained all day. There was a 4 to 5 hour waiting line to get into the funeral home. I looked up and there was Coach Emery with his assistant standing in the rain, they had driven the long 4 hours to get to Oswego that day. We now had a better feeling for the man that he is. It has been said that good things happen to good people. Coach Emery was certainly a very successful Coach. Best to him in his retirement

    Emery will be missed by me, for lots of reasons.

    The triumvirate of coaches that founded the storied Prime Link tournament are now all retired. Together Beaney, McShane, and Emery contributed to the D3 hockey culture of the Champlain Valley. Emery was the last man standing (given his competitive nature, it wouldn't surprise me if he waited for McShane's exit to be the last man standing). Sadly, Middlebury has faded into mediocrity, but Norwich has stood tall through the transition with a great hire, and I hope that Plattsburgh will hire a worthy replacement. Houle may be a good choice, but it's always dangerous to look inside for a new hire. It's hard for the new guy to become his own man. Cam Ellsworth has done well at Norwich by making the program his own. I would be afraid that Houle might suffer the same kind of fate as Sinclair has had at Midd. Look long, look hard for a replacement. I wish Plattsburgh luck, because I really love the high energy games between NU and PSUC and I hope that continues.

    I really thought all three of the iconic Champlain Valley Coaches were individuals who put the athletes first.

    I wish Bob the best in his retirement. He's earned it and his reasons for doing so now are great ones. He brought us some great years but now it's time to move on. I'm not surprised Steve's name was the first mentioned as a replacement though I would caution against it. He took a good Castleton State team and immediately made them worse but he's also been unable to show he can be part of recruiting the same level of talent that some of our SUNYAC rivals are. We can do better and need to do a national search and hire the best guy no matter where he is right now and think that if done honestly Steve wouldn't be that guy.
