    Yes, former players definitely support this hire. Would love to know if Fr. Leahy simply rubberstamped the pick from whoever he is listening to at the moment (with no AD) or if he picked himself based on final interviews. Maybe he asked each candidate if they go to church on Sundays.

    Spoke to several former players who were playing when he was coaching and there were very positive about the choice, 5 months to hockey season. Can't wait.

    I wonder what job they'll be pushing him for next! Maybe UNH if that opens next year.

    Only better choice would have been York himself and he is golfing

    Ya, my thoughts exactly. There are so many guys to choose from who could be cadidates, we'll see if he pulls the trigger though. There a bunch of alumni who are right at the tail end of their careers who I think would be great but I don't know if they're ready to hang them up yet. I'd like to see them go in the younger direction with it

    Ya I actually ended up thinking he must be a BC guy himself but he went to Syracuse. Definitely has major connections within BC administration.

    There it is, Brown is the guy. The next steps will be interesting

    Also, seems like Thamel gets any scoup BC wants to hand out the past couple years. It's almost like there's a mentality with the school of like, "Thamel is a BC guy, he covers stuff about the school, we give him all the scoops"

    Let's be honest. The chances the next coach, even if it was Leaman, wins multiple national championships at BC is highly unlikely. Not impossible but still unlikely.

    Sure, it would be nice to have a coach that could bring a National Championship to BC quickly but if they do and then leave that would not be good enough for BC fans. What BC fans want is another Head Coach that brings several NC's to BC staying here for the long run as well. It's ironic but about a dozen years ago there was discussion about who would replace York and it always came down to Brown or Cavanaugh as that team of coaches with York was and still is the greatest coaching combination in the NCAA's for a long time if ever. Cavanaugh was considered the frontrunner then with Brown considered needing more outside experience to overtake him. It appears that thought at the time actually is coming to fruition.

    And even if that did happen it would mean he did a good job at BC. Just like Jim Montgomery did at Denver.
