Interesting day in College Hockey.

Yesterday turned out to be an interesting day in college hockey. First, Mike Kemp stepped down as hockey coach and is now the assistant athletic director of UNO. According to UNO Athletic Director Trev Alberts , Mike Kemp as not pushed out.

Former Red River star and Minnesota Gopher Grant Potulny will return to the Minnesota as an assistant coach.

Gopher assistant coach Mike Hastings is probably going to be a favorite for replacing Kemp at UNO. It would be interesting to see if Blais would consider coaching at UNO.
Neither Quinn nor Hastings returned phone calls Thursday night.

Kemp will serve on the committee to find the new coach, along with Alberts, Assistant Athletic Director Don Leahy, women's basketball coach Patty Patton Shearer, faculty athletic representative Bill Wakefield, hockey captain Mark Bernier and a member of the community.

Other names generating a buzz in coaching circles are former Lancers coach Mike Guentzel, an assistant at Colorado College who was a finalist at UNO when Kemp was hired; former North Dakota coach Dean Blais, who won two national championships with the Fighting Sioux and is now coaching Fargo of the USHL; New Hampshire assistant David Lassonde; and Miami (Ohio) assistant Chris Bergeron, who helped put together a Frozen Four team.
