    Anything Lesman needs they give him. Has total financial support. They spent about 25 million to renovate lockers, training areas etc
    Yea...when you go underneath PC seating areas, the theater for the hockey team to watch video is top of the line, hot and cold tubs, shooting rooms, etc. Pretty insane and those numbers also include the women's hockey and lax programs

    He did wonders at Union and PC with limited budgets.

    Imagine what he could do at a school with some money to spend.

Johnson is likely seen as having spent so much time coaching women, and doing it well, that it could be seen as a hindrance to coaching young men to a high level of competition.
    Also, why would an AD want to change two head coaches, when 1 is all they need. You will have no problem hiring a very good young coach away from some other school, it is one of the best jobs in college hockey, the new coach doesn't have to worry about being overshadowed by the previous coach.

    Re: Fire Mike Eaves?

    A local talk show host discussed badger hockey and I was shocked. He ripped Barry for allowing the program to fall so far. He also called the ad but didn't hear back. What he DID say is it's unlikely Mark Johnson would be hired because he's been away from the men's side too long and the women's alumni would be very upset, those statements came from a source he claims to have within the ad

    That one hire might solve two problems the Badgers have with their hockey programs.
    That is blanking brilliant! Does Frosty have any experience in the men's game?

    Devil's advocate because I already know the answer: Why not Bob Motzko?

    The further away Barry is from this hire the better.

    Sources close to the athletic department say Johnson, whose father Bob Johnson led the program to prominence as coach from 1966-82, will at least talk with Alvarez about the job. Mark Johnson was passed over by previous athletic director Pat Richter when Eaves was chosen, but has gone on to compile a 395-74-35 record and led the women’s program to four national titles.

    The other most prominent name mentioned is Don Granato, a former UW player from 1987-91 who is coaching with the USA Hockey National team Development Program. Sources say his interest in the UW job has increased.

    Another possible candidate with strong UW ties is Mark Osiecki, who played for the Badgers from 1987-90 and was an assistant from 2004-10 before leaving to become head coach at Ohio State. He was fired after three seasons with the Buckeyes and has spent the past three years as an assistant coach with the Rockford IceHogs of the American Hockey League.

    Should Alvarez decide to go outside the UW family, speculation has focused on several head coaches of other programs. Among the names frequently mentioned are Rick Bennett of Union, Nate Leaman of Providence and Mike Hastings of Minnesota State.

    I wouldn't put any stock in that. Not exactly a guy who would be getting scoops on Badger hockey, plus it's just an offhand mention on par with what some of the yahoos in the comment section are saying.
