    In fact that is a big red mark on an application for this job.
    Sloppy indeed.

      Pandolfo also does not have a degree, despite playing four years for the Terriers. He signed with the New Jersey Devils following his senior season in 1996, and is two classes short. However, he is sufficiently close enough to getting his degree where it could work. Like with Tony Granato at Wisconsin, it's not believed that would stand in the way of Pandolfo getting the job, as he could finish his degree in short order, potentially even this summer.“

          I had no idea McEachern graduated.

            I tried to suggest this earlier regarding Greeley but didn't want to get into specifics. Now that it has been reported in an article, I can go into it more. Greeley was never interested in coming back to coach at BU. Not only did he interview for the Carolina GM position, but they offered it to him, too. He turned it down because they offered $400K/year. He wants a front office career, not a coaching career.

              How close is Sacco to getting his degree? He spent 3 seasons as BU. Kind of weird to say, well you need a college degree and then... well... this guy is close enough so maybe you're ok and you can finish it up but the other guy, nah. Odd.

                I hadn't heard anything about Hynes reaching out to BU. I personally think that would be absolutely stupid of him to take the BU job. He's doing too good of a job in the NHL. On the other hand, if he did want the job, it would be ridiculously stupid of BU to not hire him. I wouldn't even bother to interview him. Just move right to salary negotiations. I wonder how serious his alleged back-channel communication was. Maybe BU figured there's no way we'd get him so they didn't want to waste the time.

                  I think the process has given us some good clues about how they felt about Quinn leaving and their expectations for how long he would stay at BU. If they want that badly to avoid losing a coach in the somewhat near term, they'll find whatever excuse they can to go with someone else. Also, maybe Sacco has one year of classes left and it couldn't be completed this summer. It sounds like Pandolfo's degree can be completed this summer.

                      But maybe BU's requirements and UW are different.

                      Agreed, I think that BU was taken off guard by Quinn leaving and fully expected him to be here until he retired... and maybe that was Quinn's intentions. As someone referenced earlier though, there is a difference between 12.5 million at one of the original 6 teams and other "regular" NHL head coach positions.

                      If the article is correct, Pandolfo has 2 classes to complete (he was here for 4 years) and that could be completed this summer we should assume. Big difference between that and (I assume) a full year of classes for Sacco (perhaps 8+ classes).

                      I also didn't know that McEachern completed his degree, but I assume that is the case based on what we have heard. If that ends up tipping the scales in his favor it was very smart of him to do so. (That being said, NHL contracts or not, I can't imagine why Sacco or Pandolfo, being that close to a degree would not have made an effort to complete it before now)

                        Is it starting to feel to anyone else that we may end up with both Albie and McEachern? Just not sure which might be head coach vs Associate?

                          Albie at HC and McEachern at Associate would be an excellent result imo. I'm not sold on McEachern being ready for the HC job at the collegiate level given his limited overall D1 experience.

                          The Hynes situation is curious. Of course if you could get a current NHL head coach of a playoff team to come that'd be a huge get for the program but you have to wonder why Hynes even reached out in the first place. Therefore if I'm the AD my reaction to Hynes would be what's the catch?

                            I like this as well.

                            And I'm not against having a non BU person as head coach. It just has to be the right one and I just don't think Rick Bennett is that right one.

                              Where did you hear this? He was already part of the department before Quinn arrived. He was the ad interim AD when Mike Lynch left.

                                I share that concern, however ISL hockey is no small thing and one would think with his overall hockey career that his knowledge is high enough, especially if we get both Albie and McEachern it should work well. The unknown is what the AD sees in the interview process that we cannot.
