No, Elkhorn is a suburb off of Omaha. His new position has nothing to do with hockey. He will be in charge of getting kids signed up for basketball, football, soccer and baseball.

Elkhorn is just a suburb of Omaha so it is possible him and his wife liked Omaha so much to just stick around. Either way congrats to him.

Is Executive Director the same as Athletic Director?

Do most USHL teams have a director of scouting position along with a general manager?  I guess I always figured it was the same person.

Can't recall any teams where they were one and the same. Still alot of HC's who also have the GM title in the league. Alot of guys want that experience, but I'd say more importantly the control factor that goes with it.

Great question.  Looks like Allison is HC and GM and Rick Beckfield is Director of Scouting (DOS) and Player Personnel for the Bucs.

 

Fargo shows Eades as HC and GM and Brad Lutsch as asst coach and DOS.

 

GB shows Mikesch as HC and GM and Lenny Hoffman as DOS.

 

Interestingly MUS shows Anthony Bartoli as statistical analyst!! 

 

WTL shows PK as HC and GM with Shane Fukaushima as DOS and Director of Player Personnel. 

 

 

Interesting to read though the franchises and see their staffs.  But as far as your question I saw 4, 5 counting SC, teams with a Director of Scouting.  .........Forgot to look to see how many have a separate GM and HC.  Will do that next time.

Realize this isn't the USHL, but am hearing Billy Powers is the favorite to be the new Head Coach in Janesville.

Sorry if this is old news.  Former Storm assistant Ben Gordon is the Chicago Steel's new Associate Head Coach! "Gordo" won the Clark Cup with the Storm in 2016 and spent last season as the Assistant Director of Hockey Operations at the University of Minnesota.

Thanks, H8t.  Nice news to come home to.  Looks like a guy who's seen and been involved in the sport at a lot of levels and capacities.
