  • Re: MSU Spartans 2016-17 (Volleyball Looks Like a Legit Alternative)

    So Hollis took a swing and missed at another coach who has been out of college hockey for a few years, albeit one who was very successful while at DU. There goes the "easy/lazy" approach to filling the position. If Danton Cole is being considered for the Michigan job (should Red retire), Hollis best get off his keester and get Cole to sign on the dotted line. Otherwise, Hollis will be forced to do something that he is probably woefully prepared, qualified, or interested in doing....conduct a true coaching search.

    And lurking in the background is the possibility that the DU job will be open as soon as the middle of the week, with Monty being rumored to be the favorite for the Florida Panthers coaching vacancy, thus creating another opening at a big time program. Is Michigan State still a big time program?

      you got a source for that Monty to Florida rumor? I just talked to two NHL contacts and two in college hockey, and none have heard anything like that. His name has bee in mentioned for better NCAA jobs. I google "Jim Montgomery Florida panthers and can't even find a real rumor.

        Bob McKenzie mentioned Montgomery to Florida tonight on NBCSN. There are other un-named sources who brought up the same over the weekend in Chicago.

            You need better sources. Weren't you 100% sure ECHL Toledo's Derek Lalonde was going to be the next AHL Griffins coach, no way in hell Todd Nelson would get the job?

                Elliotte Friedman on HNIC Saturday said Montgomery is a candidate in Vegas for the Golden Knights job.

                  Judging solely from his all-caps use, Hondo seems to really, really, really think it's Cole.

                    Remember the last coaching search when the news stations even REPORTED it being someone other than Anastos?(can't remember if that was Cole or Bob Daniels) This could be happening again.. I doubt hollis has said much to the media in regards to who he has actually talked to.

                      Danton Cole has been hired.

                        Uninspired? Perhaps. A bad hire? I don't think so.

                        Hollis clearly refused to leave his comfort zone again. For a second time, there was no national search and the selection was based, at least in part, on a Spartan purity test. That said, Cole isn't a bad choice. He's a good coach with direct connections to the NTDP. Frankly, Cole should have been the choice six years ago.

                        If the reports turn out true, I would be rather interested in hearing about his long-term vision for the program.

                          Uninspired and very safe from an appearance standpoint. If Michigan had spoken with Cole, as was rumored, then Hollis had to make a run at Cole. Losing Cole to Michigan would have looked TERRIBLE!

                          He is a good coach but I think the connections to the NTDP are over-rated. Most if not all of the players in the development program are committed or signed to NLI's. The concern should be Cole's ability to recruit. That is the great unknown.

                            According to a member of the (former) coaching staff, they interviewed a coach who was in the Frozen Four last weekend.

                            Remember the last time Danton Cole was "announced"?
