Most of the exceptions recently are grad transfers going up the stack, but even then I don't remember any from D3 to D1.

    Like people said, it is rare but there are examples, but like I said, you have to be THAT good. I see it happening more in basketball, where DI teams are picking up JuCo players all the time to fill some spots.

    Certainly makes it seem like he might be under consideration

    Re: LIU adds Men's D-1 Hockey

    Dan Rubin has the first of a three-part series on LIU on USCHO today. In the series, he talks with three coaches who have started programs, Robert Morris' Derek Schooley, Penn State's Guy Gadowsky, and Arizona State's Greg Powers. It's interesting to compare what they faced and how they planned with what's going on at LIU.

    The last thing you want to see is a program fold. But you have to imagine LIU is going to try to grab some of the UAH players. Bunch of Ontario boys on the roster. Not that there's THAT much top end talent there, but they're DI players.

    Well, I suppose ASU has 4 new open dates, as I thought there was a tentative UAH series and Holy Cross cancelled out on their comittment to travel to Tempe as repay for ASU traveling to their rink the last few years.

    Re: LIU adds Men's D-1 Hockey

    College Hockey News is reporting LIU has hired Brett Riley, an assistant coach at Colgate, as the head coach.

    “Prior to Colgate, Riley, a 2014 graduate of Hobart, spent three seasons as head coach at D-III Wilkes (Pa.), where he started the program from scratch. Obviously, he will be in the same situation with LIU.”

    Re: LIU adds Men's D-1 Hockey

    You guys got a tremendous, young, coach with a great bloodline, I'm bummed that he left Colgate, in his one year there he brought in some very good recruits.

    The CHN article is inaccurate, he coached Albany Academy for three years after playing at Hobart. He then recruited Wilkes first year ever D3 team to a 16-8-2 record where they were nationally ranked.

    This can't be true. Nobody was interested in this job!

    He turned Academy around in the NEPSAC and got them back into the large school finals within a couple of years. It's been clear for a while he has a lot of potential as a head coach.

    There are always young turks looking to get a foothold in the D1 hockey world any way they can. Billy Riley (an uncle?) took UMass Lowell from obscurity to a force to be reckoned with. See also Army hockey, where successive generations of Rileys somehow squeezed blood out of a stone (recruiting-wise) more often than not.
