Nichols College is looking for their 4th coach in a season in a half per the AHCA website
Buffalo State and Amherst are looking for coaches.
I go to a lot of games and you hear a lot of stuff. How much of what you hear around the rink do you take as gospel?
I am not a member of the Amherst community and have never spoken with Coach Matthews. I do find the use of the "interim" tag inappropriate, unless a coach has taken a leave and the replacement is in fact a place holder. When a top college like Amherst, where many coaches measure their tenure in decades, has a coach depart, as Coach Plumer did, in good time and on a friendly basis, it amazes me that the best the college can do is conduct a search and then appoint an "interim" coach, as they did with Coach Johnson. Coach Matthews obviously did them a big favor coming on board at such a late date prior to last season. How effective recruiting can be done by an "interim" head coach? What kind of support is the Amherst AD providing this program? What I characterize as weird is this seeming willingness to let a top flight program wither.
I will say that based on his recruiting and the performance of the team it will be surprising to me if he does not stay at Amherst unless he chooses to leave for other opportunities.
