(#244) NCAA will allow third assistant on college hockey coaching staffs
The top story in today’s issue (#244) is on the NCAA Division I Council voting today to make big changes to college hockey coaching staffs. In short, every program will be allowed one additional full-time paid assistant coach next season and the volunteer assistant designation is being eliminated. What does it mean for current staffs? Will schools fund an additional assistant? I have my theory on how many schools might implement this change.
Also in today’s issue …
The NCAA D-I Council also voted to make changes to the transfer process, specifically for players who are looking to transfer for a second time. The council also eliminated a requirement for freshman eligibility.
I have my weekly standings predictions for the Big Ten, Hockey East, and now Atlantic Hockey using my KRACH model. The CCHA, NCHC, and ECAC will be added soon (I still have to build those).
Four players have already entered the transfer portal for the 2023 offseason.
New commitments to Vermont, Army, and RIT.
