Another former Sioux player has worked his way into the college coaching ranks.
Jason Herter is leaving his job as Fargo Force head coach and general manager to be an assistant coach at Minnesota-Duluth under Scott Sandelin, a former Sioux defenseman.
That means the Force will be looking for their fourth coach in four years. The previous three all had Sioux ties — Dean Blais (former head coach), Steve Johnson (former player) and Herter.
Byron Pool was named interim head coach, but Lincoln Stars head coach Chad Johnson (a former Sioux player) could be a candidate to replace Herter. Former Sioux defenseman Andy Schneider is an assistant under Johnson in Lincoln.
Minnesota also will have a new assistant coach this season.
The school announced that John Hill will not be returning and several news outlets have reported that Mike Guentzel will be coming back to campus to fill that spot.
East Coast media outlets reported this weekend that Wisconsin coach Mike Eaves was a top candidate for the Devils job.
But Eaves tells the Wisconsin State Journal that he has not had any contact with the Devils.
