    Mel Pearson-Michigan Tech's new Coach

    https://www.mgoblue.com/sports/m-hock...son_mel00.html

    The word is he's the next coach. Official statement to come likely Monday.

    During his 23 years at UofM.

    21 straight NCAA appearances.
    10 Final Fours.
    2 NCAA Championships.

    I would say Tech got it right this time.

    It's good that tech got a good coach but its still going to be hard to convince high profile players to come there considering houghton is a smallish town and the recent hockey history plus i think the male to female ratio is something like 3-1.
    Check out my hockey blog at https://hockeyempire.blogspot.com/ and leave a comment. Good stuff McGruff.

    LOL, right.

    Seriously though, it's understood that Pearson flew up for an interview earlier this week. If a decision truly was made this quickly, it would seem he's probably our man, though it's all still a rumor at this point.

    That's exactly where a good strategist would capitalize by cornering the market on gay hockey players.

    As if the NMU Puckheads needed more fuel for their fire.

    If true, good luck Mel. I'd love to see a packed house and a winning program like when you played here.

    Use Clarkson's strategy (their ratio is even worse): Recruit Canadian players and tell them you're close to home.

    If it is indeed true, I definitely agree with this.

    Could MTU be giving their celler spot to the Mavs?

    Probably. BSU could be there too.

    I think MTU will be much better just by the coaching change. WMU showed us how much that can change things for a program.

    I won't even think that far ahead. Be sure to remind your shorter half that she shouldn't either.

    OK yeah, I could see that. Gotta have more than five at least, right?

    Ahhh...it's just Mel's bio. Thanks Flashy. Anyone have any credible sources that say Mel is coming to Tech or that Blais was made that $300,000 offer? If such an offer was indeed made to Blais, it sounds like enough to be able to say they made him a good offer, but not enough to entice him to leave Omaha, where his base salary was $250K is likely more than that with the extension he signed last year.

    We've had some good sources, we can't just name them.
