    Fernie Flaman never had a college degree. Did he even have a high school diploma when he coached Northeastern? Don McKenney, who succeeded him, also had no college educational background.

    For Fernie's alma mater, it used to simply list "No College." Some people thought it meant North College. Which might exist in the imagination somewhere in Saskatchewan.

      Some traction on the Twittersphere that there will be a press conference Wednesday announcing the new coach. Some believe that it's Albie. Nothing solid there.
      ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

        From an old Washington Post story on college players finishing their course work to get their degrees.

        “A bachelor’s degree is required to coach college hockey, another reason graduating is important to Orpik.”

        New rule perhaps or just fake news.
        It Happened!!!!

          The job posting for this coaching position undoubtedly required a BA/BS degree.

          Fernie Flaman? He retired from the NHL in 1963. It's a different world today.

            If the degree rule is BU's, I like it. As a parent, I would feel better if I knew the coach has experienced the rigors involved in not just being in college, but actually working at it enough to get a degree.

            I would welcome the Albie/McEachern duo, and could see Shawn taking the AC role, unlike some others have said. BU is at a different level in terms of exposure and caliber of players that he would be helping recruit than his previous stops. If he wants to be a college HC someday, this role could still be a good move, IMHO.

            Glad it appears this will be concluding soon. If it is Albie, I suspect we won't lose any 2018 recruits.

                The degree is an NCAA requirement, maybe it wasn't back in the day, but it is now. Granato was able to take the Wisconsin job without a degree but with a plan to earn it in under a year. Sounds like BU may be uninterested in using that loophole/exception, I don't have strong feelings either way on how I feel about that stance.

                  Thankfully those days are in the past. But thank you for reminding us...

                    Told Freddy Meyer also applied at BU, but is out of the running. Has been in charge of the East Coast Wizards (EHL) since 2014 and was an assistant with Manchester (then in the AHL) prior to that. Meyer has earned the reputation as a top talent developer in the region.
                    Wonder how many others applied with little fanfare.

                          My friend was asked to be the MC at the presser but was unable to due to a previous commitment. They called him at Noon today.

                              I don’t know who it is, but the speculation seems to be that it’s Albie. Partly because it wasn’t a long, drawn out process is the thinking.
