Jeff Pyle Named Texas Stars Head Coach

Interesting hire. His teams gradually got worse as the years went by in Gwinnett. Throw in the fact he is 52.

Jeff Pyle deserves this opporunity. He's a great coach and will be missed in Gwinnett. Don't let his last two years fool you....he didn't get any help from Atlanta contracted players.

I meant the season results. Ever since the Kelly Cup Finals run the season has ended earlier and earlier.

Anyone linked to the crappy Atlanta franchise suffered because of the that **** ownership. I wouldn't read too much into the record.

Be interesting to see what happens the first time Dallas calls someone up and then doesn't use them. All he did was cry all last year about how mis-treated his team was because they lost players to call-up.

Not true. The fact is that the players called up, never got sent back or replaced. Hell to go from losing a first and second line and playing the season with 3rd and 4th lines.

Like it or not though, it's Pyle's job to replace those guys....not Chicago's.

And at that level, you're replacing them with beer leaguers.

He did well with what was going on. Near the end it wasn't looking good he made some moves to get more Forwards at least more depth. I think he was a solid coach but I'm surprised he is getting the promotion.

What part is not true? So taking you at your word....his job is not to prepare his players to move up to the next level. He shouldn't want his players to move up but instead your selfishly ask them to jettison their careers so that he can keep his team and HIS career together? Wow....just wow.

Even from way over here in england and germany I can see that Pyle did not do real well his last few years. I think that he is a decent coach and I guess we will find out.

He got really pissed when the Wolves did not hire him after John Anderson left and he got real mad at the whole situation with call-ups and lack of Atlanta depth and drafting ability. It also did not help when Chevy left Chicago as Chevy typically did not get free agent players from Gwinnett.

I think that All of that just kept pyling on him and he gave up. We have all had that type of feeling in our jobs!!

You totally misinterpreted my comment. He didn't 'cry' about it. Coach Pyle was always accommodating to a player being called up at the sacrifice to the Gladiators.
