AS I had recruited many players under Coach MacAdam and personally.knew that it was NOT.necessary but required a sales job about the advantages of a STU education.
And now Coach Ryan is being penalized by current A/D Eagles who has downgraded the second coaching position and lopped.$50,000 from the budget and it is my understanding that Eagles DID NOTHING to defend thmens hockey situation which in deed be is entirely responsible for creating.
I will continue to call for the removal of this man from his position of A/D administrator as he should NEVER have been put in the position in the first place.
The man has neither appropriate background nor training and should be removed ASAP.
TROY RYAN is doing an EXCEPTIONAL job in spite of very trying conditions and I believe that corrective action must be taken after a THOROUGH investigation of"the Eagles Years"
You attack the man for his coaching, granted the team was in the tail spin and he's not coaching anymore. NOW you attack the man because you don't like him an as AD. Get over yourself. STU has BENEFITTED with our other teams. It all just isint about hockey. Look what Mike has done as an athletic director (STU won in basketball, volleyball, moved women's rugby and cross country to CIS). He's in no part with the hockey team. Let it go, its being tiresome for years now.
Hockey wise, I hope STU does well and gets into the playoffs! I miss being a part of the team and always will be a Tommie. Just let it go Rantfather.
