    Re: Wisconsin Hockey XXXVII: Waiting for the axe to fall

    Pretty sure it's going to be Oz.

    Let me rephrase that. If I were a betting man, I would put my money on Oz.

    He's had 3 losing seasons. He's had 12 winning seasons. He's had 6 seasons with a winning percentage above 60%, 3 of which were 70% or higher.

    This year he's coached the USA NTDP U18 team to a 36-11-1 record. They average 3.5 GPG, 2.46 GAPG, 21.4% PP, and 83.2% PK.

    He's got some connections to a lot of recruits.

    Last bit: the NCAA doesn't exactly compare to the USHL, ECHL, and AHL. There's a lot that goes into that stuff, for example call-ups to the NHL while he was coaching the AHL.

    Edit: Wonder if Oz would sign on as lead assistant under Don Granato? That would be an awesome 1-2 pairing.
    He coaches u17 correct? Not u18 and they are 21-26 in the ushl. Or am I missing something?

    Let's have two threads. Why not.

    Nate Leamon would probably be my #1 choice. I don't see it happening though.

(3 years no results shown and 1 year came in at mid season). Am I missing something? I'm not being a smart ***; I just don't see much there.

    Even though he didn't do much better in the USHL, because of his coaching at a higher level, I prefer Oz; the Great and Powerful.

    No

    Is the application deadline related to any kind of deadline for when a decision has to be made? As has been discussed here, there are a lot of potential candidates who would likely be both excellent and realistically interested candidates. I could see the selection process going well beyond that date.

    I wouldn't be shocked if that were to be the case. It reminds me of when Auston Matthews mysteriously added Wisconsin to his list of potential schools in the middle of last year, well after it was clear how atrocious the Badgers were. The potential for Granato to go there was the only explanation I could think of that would explain why a 1-and-done guy like Matthews would do that.

    It's clear that the decision to let Eaves go was already made prior to this week, so it would make sense that the search has been going on.

    Edit: Or Mike Babcock is going to say "see ya!" to the Leafs to coach the Badgers, because the Babcock Dairy was too much to pass up.

    If that deadline is true then the new coach must have come to an agreement already. That's no turn time at all, especially for guys not named Mark Johnson, though I don't think it will be him.

    Mike Eaves is a great coach and even better man. He will always be a legend in Wisconsin Badger hockey.

    And Ryan McDonagh:

    I learned a lot from Mike Eaves during my time in Madison. He was a great coach and always wanted to help players be better people.
    Class acts, all of these guys

    It's interesting that the application deadline for the new coaching positions is March 25. Fairly fast turnaround. Also, only one assistant job is posted along with the head coach job. Though that's the same situation for women's basketball and UW publically said that the whole staff had been let go.
