he recruited UNH's slow decline and then had violations while doing it. great job

It was one of my major criticisms of Leaman letting quality kids or at least highly drafted kids get away like Jake Ryzcek who has 27 points in 33 games in the Q.

Pooley does have two rings from LSSU, right? 1992 and 1994.

he wouldn't mind a third.

It would be funny if he set up a profile here and ripped into everyone who kept posting "Fire Pooley!" in 2003 and 2004. Mainly, me.
;)

Maybe he can only function as an assistant not the boss

Sorry if it's been mentioned but would Jerry Keefe be a possible replacement for Borek? Sure a lateral move but chance to return to PC...

Don’t get sense he has any relation with PC. Left during his senior season though nobody left who would care. He certainly would intrigue me, like what he’s done recruiting wise at NU. I would wonder if his 11 years is the experience Keaman seemed to seek in this assistant position (Russell to Miller to Borek). Also how his presence would mesh with Mayotte. Then no word what is up with him being only Anchorage finalist who hasn’t officially said no. If he goes too I think a Keefe makes real sense.

Another option could be Berard joining the coaching staff from Holy Cross. His kid is committed to the Friars and seems like the coaches are friendly.

I know this has been brought up but I wonder if Leaman adds Dennehy as an assistant on the staff. That would be a nice landing spot for Dennehy. Berard I would be really surprised with because he is a head coach. Pearl made that move once but I do not think it happens now. Berard waited a long time to be a head coach

I think Rolston’s status has to be settled first. The consensus when season began was Olympics allowed him time to volunteer, but next year he wanted to find a larger pond now?

However when Brett committed I wondered if long term Dad was eyeing a PC return. Certainly there is a lot of water still to go under the dam before Brett arrives. Similarly I wondered if a Borek would stay. Time at PC he had to deal with major life changes, losing son, getting remarried and moving back up north. I had wondered about him trying to find a head coaching job in D3 or a prep school job. The Merrimack job was manna from heaven. Anyway Berard likely to have inkling of goings on from Brett’s recruitment and fact he and Borek had a close working relationship, he was Borek’s assistant at Colby and Lake St

Dennehy might be better fit for the volunteer slot. First Merrimack is paying him and it leaves him less committed to take the right job

In both Berard and Dennehy’s case it might be positioning to get to head of line to replace Leaman if his pro opportunity comes. Might also be temptation for Rolston to take the job

I came away more impressed with Borek after watching the videos from yesterday. Did not know Berard was coaching with Borek before. Interesting. I had always thought if Leaman leaves, Bennett is hunted down by Providence to return home and take control of your team.

For the pre-Leaman years, 3 HE championship game appearances with one title and 2 NCAA appearances is not bad, but things went downhill dramatically from 2003 on.

From what I know, Berard lives closer to PC than he does to Holy Cross (IIRC, he lives in the same town as Leaman) so it would be less of a commute.

Well Divver reported yesterday Conway going to Minn Wild Development camp. In and of self not of much note many players go but as A 5th year senior you wonder what an I,pressive showing would mean

Also no word on Borek’s replacement. Zlax’s alumni buddies are concerned over a similar situation at the old alma mater. However both Borek and Miller were hired officially last week of June to replace their predecessor who we knew was gone shortly after season. Borek was the groundwork guy so Still a lot of leads for. Ayotte and Leaman to work with though Merrimack now has that body of knowledge to work with too. I believe if they get an assistant at another school their contracts run through July 1, though clearly there are exceptions. Minnesota just hired SCSU’sbassistantbto join Motzko (son of former Friar Bruce Raboin). Again it was mentioned in UNH assistant coach talk about assistants of teams still alive still having responsibilities. In a tweet some time back Cox mentioned a Vegas scout Mike Levine for any of HEA openings, he did a turn at Brown so he knows RI and he lives on the Cape

Cav thank you very much!!! On top of things as always! I renewed my season tickets a couple of days ago so I won't have to think about it later this month. It appears the demand for tickets is on the uptick. Now we just need folks to buy them to use them. I'm guilty of that myself if a boat gets cancelled in the winter and I can't find someone to take them last minute. The downside of living on an Island.
Can't wait for the start of the season. Going out to the Denver series but I see they are losing their coach. I hate when that happens to college programs.

I have recognized that Cox does alot of "work" for assistants looking to get their name out there and people for jobs. Likely coming from the people themselves that want their names mentioned.

Rolston is being named a full-time assistant according to Divver.

Ron Rolston on board as associate head coach just as some of you said a few weeks ago.
