Blasi Gets 10-year Extension

UND fans should get ready to see a very familiar face behind the opponent’s bench at Ralph Engelstad Arena in the coming years.

Miami and head coach Rico Blasi agreed to a 10-year extension that will keep him under contract through 2022-23.

Blasi has been one of college hockey’s winningest coaches in the last decade.

He also did a great job leading the RedHawks to a CCHA title this season, despite losing four top players to the CHL.

    Looked at the list of national champions since Blasi became head coach and didn’t see Miami listed. Its a travesty that he is allowed to continue to coach.

    Seriously, the NCHC looks like it will be a tough conference. While the WCHA was also difficult, in any year, you could count on at least a couple of teams to be beatable. Not sure that will be the case in the new conference.

      You sir are correct! Especially since he inherited a powerhouse with a huge list of talented dpicks, this guy needs the boot! Oh wait, that’s are guy who inherited a national power house yet can’t get it done!

      Bad analogy by you sir!

    You can’t measure success by looking only at national championships. The guy has done a great job at Miami.

    Miami will no-doubtedly be one of UND’s biggest rivals going forward in the NCHC. Along with Denver,CC, and Duluth me thinks…
