Brad Berry has officially applied for the vacant men’s hockey assistant coaching position.
In other words: Game over [read full story here].
We won’t hear anything official for a while. The job is posted until May 30, so nobody can be hired for at least 13 days. But, as expected, we know where this is leading.
I searched back to see if any of Berry’s recruits still remain on the team. Everyone on next year’s squad will have committed after Berry left for Manitoba, though Danny Kristo committed just eight days after Berry left UND, so he likely was in on some of that recruiting.
As for others who have thrown their name in the hat? Well, no names I have recognized, though one applicant was a chef at Texas Roadhouse in Michigan. As much as the guys like their Thursday night team meals at steakhouses and would love a guy who can whip up a meal like that during intermissions, I still think they pick Berry over him.
