  • Re: UAA Seawolves offseason thread- time for change

    Sounds like a good hire for UAA. I hope things work out well for the program.
    I am Tommyboy, and I approve this message.

    The Herb Brooks National Hockey Center..... I wonder who originally came up with that.

      Where did u find this? I looked all over for this info and generally it's not disclosed, but the sites that did have salaries listed say $3000 a month plus housing.

      UAF is 56-86-12 vs. UAA.

        I worked in the league for several years. My best man coached in the ECHL. Now I am not saying all coaches are in that salary range, but for a guy with Matt's experience and record, that would be a good ballpark figure. It may even be a bit on the conservative side. $3,000 a month plus housing? There are quite a few players making that, over or under the table.

          That's what I thought, but I double checked the info at this website and it listed coaches and assistant coaches. It was for 2007, but salaries can't have changed that much in 5 years. Maybe it was a typo.

            I can't say that I am disappointed by the hire. He's young and motivated and hopefully has a good pulse on the players. Good luck Coach!

              I also like the hire and the more I read about Coach Matt the better I like the hire. This link gives some additional information on his young family: http://www.recordnet.com/apps/pbcs.d.../-1/A_SPORTS04

                Gotta be a typo. The assistant was my roomie at one spot and made about that year round.

                  Pretty sure you're right Suze. Chatted with someone with our local ECHL organization. (Why not. He's a neighbor who's dog won't stay out of my garden! )

                  Davyd in MI had his own source, but the Aces guy I spoke with got a chuckle when I asked if the salaries of an ECHL head coach and (in the case I gave him, an Aces coach) are the same.

                  "Try half" is what I was told.

                  I have no clue how the ECHL works and if coaches vary THAT much in salary? I wouldn't think so though. Especially here -- not with these owners. They treat their coaches, office staff, players... all employees.. unbelievably. They'd never go under whatever the minimum is. They wouldn't cheat & go over a cap either, but no way the Aces owners one pay one penny less than anyone else is making. I've always wondered why every player that comes up here loves it so much, and 'm guessing it's because the owners know how to treat 'em?

                  So I dunno! Confused But from what I was told. No way is it even close to be the same. "Around half" is much more realistic.

                    There is a great variance depending on the franchise, market, experience, etc. I'm basing it upon the coaches I've known and worked with. The lowest paid of which was around $60k his first year as a head coach. You could be right on with what someone may be making there.

                      The UAF police have finished their investigation of the Haddad/Shyiak incident:

                      The UAF police department reached a different conclusion than UAA's former athletic director after investigating a 2011 incident in which UAA's former hockey coach hit a player.

                      Dave Shyiak "possibly" committed a misdemeanor assault when he used a hockey stick to slash a player across the thighs during practice, according to a written report by the UAF police.

                      No charge will be forwarded for prosecution because the victim, former player Nick Haddad, doesn't want to pursue it, UAF investigator Steve Goetz said in the report.

                        Not that it makes a difference but I am under the impression Thomas has a degree from RIT? Correct?

                          I know he played there so I am assuming that he does.

                              UAF made the kind of hockey history on October 10th 2015 that no team wants to claim the Nanooks became the first NCAA Division I victim of Arizona State.

                                After Coach Shyiak was let go, they removed the hockey coaches section on the Seawolves website. You could click on it.. but it was just a blank page.

                                Now that it's back up and they've updated it to add Matt Thomas as head coach, they also have Blair Campbell on there. Probably a typo by whoever updated and restored it.. but for right now anyway, Campbell is on there.
