    At an SEC school? Maybe but still unlikely. At BC? Never.

    Gladchuk is laughing his *** off! Leahy never learned because he is an outsider himself, that you need to hire a BC person for AD. They are the only people that will stay and work under Leahy.

    The trustees need to bring back JY for another year and force Leahy out next month. This is ridiculous!

    Go Eagles!

    York will not take an interim AD position, he would rather stay as coach vs. that. He needs time for himself. What I could see is Jerry getting deeply involved in the replacement selection with the AD sealing the contract parts of it.

    I'm not buying the York wanted an extension take. He's 76 and had the recurring/rolling contract. That doesn't make any sense. Haven't seen that reported anywhere.

    And I couldn't care less about the AD being a BC person or that it's a stepping stone job really. But it's time to get some results if the last two ADs are being hired away from you by P5 programs.

    Pat Kraft expected to be named AD at Penn State. Good timing Pat!

    Rolston does have HC experience at US NTDP, AHL and even NHL with Sabres but I'm not sure I want them going with him. Maybe I am underselling him.

    I read something from Mike McMahon about how Minnesota State does not fall under the same university structure of Minnesota/UMD. It's easier for those two schools to match big money offers from other schools. Minnesota State/St. Cloud/Bemidji are under a different structure. Part of the reason Motzko went to Minnesota. So while Hastings could be possible I don't see it happening with Sandelin. I think the only way he's leaving UMD is for UND and that doesn't look like it will happen anytime soon. Unless an NHL team shows interest I don't see Sandelin going anywhere.

    If Ron Rolston wants to be a HC, getting it out there that he interviewed for the BC job should help him down the line. I can't see any way he gets this job though. That would be entirely underwhelming.

    I am conflicted on Dennehy. Did a good job at Merrimack and then faded. Now it looks like Borek might be doing a better job recruiting. I don't blame anyone for not winning at Merrimack and Dennehy has actually gone on to do good things in the Devils organization. He was promoted last summer:

    Despite the agenda of CHN pushing Dennehy (McMahon is Merrimack beat reporter and tight with Dennehy) I could be talked into Dennehy being a good hire.

    How does Dennehey now compare to York when he was hired? Dennehey certainly wouldn’t have the excitement or buzz of some other candidates but he is someone I could see doing a really good job at BC.

    Wow, Ron Rolston getting a stab at an interview. This means 1 of 2 things in my mind. 1 is Ron called in a big favor from Jerry/an alumni back from when he was an assistant in or they're truly casting a very wide net in the search. He's so far off the radar and below any level of expectation of potential coaches it's crazy. My guess is it's a combination of the two, not only did he call in a big favor but they're actually casting a wider net than maybe the names we've heard so far.

    We basically only know for certain Cav, Brown & Rolston have interviewed. We can assume Dennehy has because of all the insane lobbying he's done to try to get the job, he's called in every favor, iou, christmas card and text message he's had for the past 30 years to try to get it. I really hope J.D. Forrest has gotten a fair shot in all of this and interviewed.

    We also know Donato's name was definitely floated, just not how serious the interest is from either side. Btw, for anyone scoffing at Donato leaving, that's a really hard job at Harvard and with it's recruiting restrictions, he may be more open to leaving than people may think. Bob Motzko left St Cloud for Minnesota, Donato can leave Harvard for BC. My hope would be they have approached Carvel & Pecknold as well. I want no part of Leaman although I know some here do. There have been the Mike Hastings rumors about BU but I'm surprised we haven't heard anyone go after Scott Sandelin. A North Dakota guy coaching at Duluth, maybe he could be convinced to go after a new challenge?
