It was the obvious next step and a very good opportunity for him. Not getting how you or anyone else can hold it against someone to make any career decision. And i don't think you were in the room during any discussion between the two of them, so you really should not claim to know.
Merv’s tenure at Tech felt a lot like Lou Holtz’s coaching tenure at U of MN football in the mid 80’s. Everyone knew if The Golden Domers came calling Holtz was gone. That is how I looked at it with What’s his name. It is not that uncommon in sports.
It was a good fit at the time, but that time has passed. What’s his name is just another coach. It is just a line on his resume that he was a Tech coach and hockey player until he retires.
For me, Joe and his coaching style is a perfect for Tech.
Hopefully the GLI does not go the way of the District Detroit.

Nice that ASU provides a free video feed. However the cameras seem to be operated by spastic primates, and the balance on the tripods is so far off that the offensive zones look like the villain hideouts on the old Batman TV show.
Ha! I was catching glimpses of the feed while at the Seawolves game. The camera work did seem a bit spastic. It made the game play look plodding, but/or maybe it was. Is there a way to watch the replay of the game on the pac12 site?
I thought the goaltending wasn't very good and I also thought that the smith goal should have counted. I'll be exceedingly glad not to play these guys anymore.
