Just some links to pass along from yesterday’s introduction of John Micheletto as UMass head coach.
First, here is the article from the Boston Herald’s Jim Clark to go with his blog post yesterday.
Matt Vautour had this notes piece that I didn’t have a chance to link to last night featuring player reaction and some other tidbits. Interesting to note that McCutcheon does admit that the timing of the search did affect some candidates’ interest in the position while Micheletto says that he spoke to equipment manager Josh Penn and women’s hoops coach Sharon Dawley about working at UMass.
Masslive’s Harry Plumer had a player reaction story as well.
USCHO had this interesting feature on UMass’ hire.
Up next for Micheletto will be hiring an assistant coach to fill out his staff. Speculation is rampant and encouraging but so far nothing specific has been reported.
