Mark Coyle is a phenomenal AD. We’re lucky to have him and lucky to have him stay. He’s more important to Fleck staying than people think. On top of that what major coach do we have to worry about either sucking or leaving if they don’t?

His coaching hires this far have been good. Whalen was a risk, and next year is critical. But nobody was really upset by the hire.

Good on him for the extension.

You might be right in many regards to what you say about Mark Coyle. Maybe the extension was warranted.

However, Norm makes a painfully obvious, valid point. The Athletic Department (Mark Coyle) and hockey operation (Bob Motzko) have done a pathetically inadequate job of promoting Gopher hockey. Not even a point worth arguing.
