Drama In Gopher Nation

In what's becoming an increasingly alarming trend, there is more drama in the Gopher Nation. In case you haven't heard, Minnesota assistant coach Mike Hastings has stepped down to take a lateral position at the University of Nebraska-Omaha.

Hastings will be the top assistant for the Mavericks. Former North Dakota head coach Dean Blais was recently hired as head coach. Hastings was one of a handful of finalists for the head coaching job. Prior to his one year stint at Minnesota, Hastings was the head coach for the Omaha Lancers for 14 seasons.

The stability in the twin cities has been less than stellar over the past few seasons. Minnesota will be on their 4th assistant coach in the past 6 seasons. There are rumors on the WCH Blog that John Hill might be next, taking the Sioux City coaching job in the USHL. Gopher Nation is in full spin control right now.

Anyone else in favor of having a reality TV show on the Gopher hockey team? Watching them over the past 6 seasons has been better drama than whats been on TV lately any ways.
