Official: New Assistant Coach

Readers of Tech Still Sucks were alerted earlier this week that the hockey department had narrowed their selection to Rob Facca, a current volunteer assistant for the University of Nebraska Omaha hockey team. (See post below)

Readers of the Mining Journal saw that the news was made official by NMU yesterday, and Rob will be joining the staff of the 'Cats this August.

The one "wish list" item that was not fulfilled by this hiring was goaltending experience. This will not detract from the hiring in any way, as it has been a wish list item for many years. Rob was the best candidate available for the position, and his experience with the USHL will be a benefit for recruitment.

Rob is no stranger to NMU hockey; Former winger Ed Ward and Rob are good friends.
