Thanks, 64....... Just read this, a really good piece. Ambition is a great thing but so is happiness and they don't always go hand in hand. No doubt PK could have moved "up the ladder" but he was smart enough to know a good thing when he saw it and stayed in Loo.
There have been opportunities to leave, but maybe experience gives you wisdom, said OHandley, who thought more about coaching professionals when he first returned to the USHL. This became a pretty good place. We have a great building, great resources. I think Im coaching at one of the purest levels of the game with some of the best young talent in the game.
I have been wondering with all the college openings this year if Eades will potentially be leaving Fargo or if he is content in the USHL. There has to always be at least some desire for a new challenge to compete at a higher level.
PK is an anomaly in this regard. So many move up when an opportunity presents and as a developmental league it's expected. That's why a guy like PK and his story is refreshing. I'm guessing Steel coach Muse will be courted, as he should, too. Only a matter of time.
I was listening to The U-Show a couple weeks back and Steel assistant coach Manino was being interviewed and was asked what was the biggest change Muse has made with the Steel and he right away said changed the culture. It was great to hear and if that becomes the case you see coaches move on but there is a culture around a franchise and they simply reload, kinda like Dubuque.
Of course that starts at the top with ownership and allows for sustained success and a culture of professionalism.
