    6 years is a fairly long tenure for an assistant in any sport these days, and it's not always convenient to wait around for a promotion opportunity. Brooks has already been a successful D3 head coach, so there's no reason for him to go backward to a D3 or junior A head coach role. Sometimes family circumstances drive the decision to make a move. Sometimes people feel they've plateaued in their current position and need a new leader's perspective. Getting coaching & recruiting experience out east will likely expand his opportunities to land a head coach job in the ECAC or HEA in the coming years. I don't really have a problem with it regardless, people move on and it's an opportunity for us to bring in a new lead assistant with some fresh ideas. I'm hoping for someone with good USHL recruiting connections.
    Do you think Joe still wants to recruit the USHL? From one of the Joe Show's, he said Tech hit a recruiting glass ceiling and couldn't get the next level of recruit with the answer being league reputation. Sounded like agents/perception played a part in it. Sounds like the reason why Tech is recruiting Canada and Europe more than they have recently. I wouldn't be surprised if Tech get someone with a strong Canadian/European recruiting connection.

    Lateral move ok, though going from Western to Tech was lateral as well. Maybe he just wanted a change of scenery and I am sure a raise. Does anyone know how competitive the salaries are? Leaves the staff kind of young now.
    He didn't go from WMU to Tech. He went from WMU to head coaching jobs in the CHL and DIII Wisconsin - Stevens Point before moving to Tech.

    Interesting. It looks like a lateral move. I wonder what kind of an impact that will have on Joe's friendship with Casey.

    If they're friends, wouldn't you think they talked about it? Assume he would be getting a raise at Clarkson? I see he's from Stratford, ON. A move to Clarkson puts him closer to "home" as well.

    Will not be at GLI this year - sad it is leaving Detroit but attendance with the all Michigan format has been poor - get to see Tech vs USDTNP and will make trek during 2022 to the MAC
    LCA left no choice so glad GLI found workable solution

    I went to the Van Andel Arena site and they already have all the info up. I like it.

    Curious from my fellow Husky fans, will you be attending the GLI now that it's back to a tournament format in GR? Does not having Michigan there sway you? Does the tourney being in GR make a difference?

    There have been lots of discussions regarding what this will do for attendance. I'm just curious what the initial "feeling" is. I live in Lansing and grew up in GR, so I'm excited about this and my family is ABSOLUTELY going to attend.
    In some ways yes. I have more family and friend connections in/around GR and have a higher probability to convince them to go to a hockey game. It depends on what day the games fall, family activities, and work schedule.

    Probably more accurate to say they were kicked to the curb.
    "You're fired!"

    I'm sorry Michigan decided not to play, they are a good program and brought a lot to the table. I'm sorry the tournament is moving to GR. I don't think it will draw as well over there but who knows. Still, life goes on and so will the GLi. Michigan can go do whatever they want. They are replaceable just like everyone else.

    I live in NC now but go back to my Mom's in Grand Haven for Christmas every year, a much better chance of me going this year than there has been since I moved down here in 2010.
