I'd like to see USA Hockey go with a college coach.

Now there would be some obvious issues because of having to leave your NCAA program for the Olympics...but we see it in the World Junior Championships where currently the Canadian coach is also the coach of the Kitchener Rangers.
probably can't do that because there's a huge difference between basketball and hockey at the Olympics: Basketball is during the summer, which is the off-season of college basketball, while hockey is during the winter, making it mid-season to college hockey

They allow NHL coaches to go because there's the Olympics break, which NCAA doesn't have
