Assistant Coach Search Update

The list of candidates for the Assistant Coach position left by John Olver this spring has been narrowed. From the very short list there is one name that has become the leading candidate for this position: Rob Facca.


While seemingly unknown among the fans of college hockey, Rob has been involved with many college hockey staffs with his work for USHL, North American Jr hockey, and volunteer work for the University of Nebraska-Omaha. His strength with the Wildcats will be in his recruiting ability, a trait that the two former assistant coaches have had.

In other news, Phil Axtell has indeed transfered to NMU from Michigan Tech and will be sitting out this season per NCAA rules. No word if "Living in Houghton for a year" is considered a hardship by the NCAA. (See NCAA Rules 14.2.4 (a.k.a. "The Andrew Contois Rule"))
