    Not DIII, but our Gopher athletic department is doing all they can to cut expenses, including voluntary salary cuts for the AD and the highest paid coaches. If they don't have a football season, all bets are off.

      You would think that would impact assistant coaches or GAís but the school still has a full team of players attending in the fall. I think they would need someone running / overseeing that group?

        No doubt. But when a hiring freeze takes place at a state institution, it's broad, until someone can plead the case that not hiring is worse off than hiring someone.

          I guess the good news is that schools like Plymouth and NEC are moving ahead with hiring their coaches:

            It says the new guy at Plymouth played at Gustavus Adolphus College except he's not listed on any roster ever except their baseball team for his first 3 years as a pitcher. Awesome! He played high school hockey in Minnesota and that's the State of Hockey so I guess that's good enough. Lol

              He also taught in the exercise science field so I would t be surprised if that played into the decision. It would certainly help offset at least part of his salary.
              If thatís the case itís really too bad. Beautiful facilities and no real commitment to the program.

                Admittedly I am new to this forum, however it would appear to me that playing career doesn't have much leverage when talking about a coach years out of college. Looks like he graduated 8 years ago..... Looks like his coaching background is strong. You seem to have missed out on that info...

                  Wouldn't that be a good hire by the school then if they can limit costs? If he will be teaching....but he could also not be and they hired him for his coaching experience.

                  Again, I am new to this so maybe I am out to lunch.

                    Coaches at many D3 schools, especially state schools, are technically listed as instructors, not coaches (and sometimes even have to teach classes). And their salaries are set by the pay scale of instructors. The SUNY schools operate that way.

                      is that a way of providing a higher salary? I know other schools assign "secondary" tasks like managing the transportation for all varsity teams....or game day ops for a handful of teams during the hockey off-season. not sure if each approve drives a different pay grade?

                        Or lower salaries, depending on how high of a profile coach you are trying to get...

                        There are some of the exceptions you talk about. For the longest time Buffalo State men's hockey was a part time coaching job, so it also including being a rink manager.

                        Some coaching positions might include also being an assistant SID (Potsdam's softball coach -- and former hockey player -- Jordan Ott had that dual role).

                          Adrian is posting for a F/T assistant coach. I would take that as an indication that Kaylyn Schroka is moving on

                            And this turns out to be true. Today, Oswego announced Mark Digby as the Interim Head Coach, replacing Coach Dillon after her 14th season at the helm.

                            My speculation is that he has an interim tag because they cannot execute SUNY's requirements for a permanent hire in the pandemic.
