Michigan Tech released their tentative roster earlier today. This roster update includes some surprising omissions, one surprising addition and a few revelations about the state of recruiting for Michigan Tech, especially on the topic of over-recruiting. We'll cover it all here.
When Joe Shawhan said he wanted to add someone to the staff that would challenge him and provide great on ice coaching experience, Chris Brooks wasn't the first person that came to mind, but hiring someone with his resume sure seems to fit the bill.
Michigan Tech announced former assistant Joe Shawhan as the 22nd head coach in Huskies' history last Tuesday. Today, we got our hands on Shawhan's contract and MTU announced his first hire to his staff. We take a look at both and throw out a few names for a potential second assistant.
Tech Hockey Guide has learned that Joe Shawhan is expected to be named the 22nd head hockey coach in Michigan Tech hockey history. Shawhan becomes head coach after serving as an assistant under Mel Pearson for the past three seasons.
One of the things we've tried to examine throughout this process is what traits are preferential indicators of success in a head coach.
After running 16 profiles of possible head coach candidates over the last two weeks, THG looks at the odds for each of the seven (out of eight) known "semifinalist" options to get the top spot with the Huskies.
The staff at Tech Hockey Guide thought we were done with profiling potential candidates but as with life, things change. We have confirmed with multiple sources that current Minnesota-Duluth Assistant Coach Jason Herter will get an in-person interview for Michigan Tech's head-coaching vacancy.
It has been two weeks since search for a new head coach of Michigan Tech hockey began. Over those weeks Tech Hockey Guide has profiled 16 potential candidates for the opening left by Mel Pearson's departure to Michigan.
As hockey seasons across the globe come to a close, now is a good time to check in with Michigan Tech alumni and take a look at how they played.
It has now been two weeks since the University of Michigan formally introduced Mel Pearson as their new head coach. That same day WCHA meetings began in Florida followed later that week with the AHCA meetings. It likely was a great opportunity for Michigan Tech Athletic Director, Suzanne Sanregret to chat with some potential candidates in a low key environment and gauge interest from assistants and head coaches throughout the country.
