Coach Howard steps down as Assistant Coach

After 36 years and 6 National Championships w/ the Wisconsin Badgers mentoring goaltenders, Coach Bill Howard has stepped down as assistant coach. From the article, it sounds like Howie is not done coaching, he is just going in a different direction.

Much like Brett Favre ending his Packer career, this was going to happen one day. I didn't expect it to be so sudden. It will be interesting to see what happens from here, especially w/ the season only 7 weeks away.

Best of luck to Coach Howard in all future endeavors!

Edited to add: Todd has an article that includes statements from both Coach Howard and Coach Eaves.
