    In a nanosecond.

    You guys aren't the only ones. Mel Pearson's contract expired. So four historically "big" jobs are open.

    Michigan
    Mich State
    BC
    BU

    The rumors were that at least Mich State and BU showed interest in Hastings. But what if Hastings got word that Michigan might also be interested? If BU was the only job left open I could understand wondering what the hell is going on but until SOMEONE reports Hastings is staying at Minn State (which i have not seen) he's likely the first domino to fall and worth waiting for IMO. Especially if Pandolfo is your 2nd choice and you know he's ok with the process.

    When mookie hunks of the kid, it is him playing the point on the pp fir jackpa vs uhn in the hea playoffs at the garden and breaking his stick at the point. The kid drops it and immediately heads for the bench on the far side of the ice. A uhn’er gleefully sees the gift and takes off with it, skating in for a breakaway shortie :-(

    No, I don't think there'd necessarily be a leak. There could, but if BU is making an effort to keep information from getting out that's a lot easier if you don't have a second school involved in the process.

    If you want a Hastings/Pecknold/Leaman type - those are three very different types of head coaches, so I have no idea what you're looking for.
    True, it would be easier to prevent leaks if no other coaches are part of the process but it doesn’t mean they aren't part of the process either. Time will tell.

    I'm looking for a proven, successful head coach. Period. That's why I laid out those three names. Stylistically, while there are differences in those three, I don't think it'll matter much if any of those guys were to get the job because they are experienced, respected, recruit well, develop players, and are excellent in-game coaches. Each would be successful here and so could others.

    Conversely, if Jay was chosen, don't ya think we'd have had a leak about that? It's been a full month since Albie was let go. If this is some ridiculous HR procedure, wouldn't they have announced Jay already saying effective May 1st? If Jay is announced, this whole thing makes the program look weak and indecisive.

    I want a Hastings/Pecknold/Leaman type, so short of that I'm going to be disappointed even further.

    I'd be more concerned whether Hastings wants to be the BU head coach, or is just looking to take a leap to the first bigger-name program that will pay him well and offer a good spot.

    I also believe if Hastings were in serious talks with BU, we would've heard a leak from somewhere beyond the original tweet from the BC blogger guy. While BU has kept a tight muzzle on everything, they wouldn't be able to keep Mankato players, families, and recruits quiet who all would likely get a whiff if Hastings were close to a deal with BU.

    Considering there's been no sniff of everything I'm inclined to believe Jay will be announced as the new HC next week. If so, I'd hope he can hire Joe Pereira as his backfill at associate HC. They'd complement each other's skills extremely well imo.
    Just because there aren't any good college hockey reporters doesn't mean there aren't serious talks.

    More. Hastings has a proven track record stronger than Quinn. I would break the bank to get him. Time to close the deal!

    Tomorrow is May 1st. I doubt we would hear on a Sunday but who knows?

    Will Monday be the day?

    No reason not to.

    Rumors of PC's Leaman interviewing for the BC job. If true, he should at least inquire with BU to create a bidding war.
