Report- Andy Murray Will Be Named Head Coach At Western Mich, Univ.

from David Drew of the Kalamazoo Gazette,

If Western Michigan University was looking for a big name hockey coach to fill the giant shoes left by Jeff Blashill, it’s done so, hiring a coach it never could have lured a year ago.

WMU has hired longtime NHL head coach Andy Murray to lead its hockey program, according to multiple sources.

Was out getting a pizza and saw this come across the news.

Great news for WMU.  If nothing else, it’s a recruitment trump card.

That’s a damn good hiring.

Wow. Murray goes from the Blues (in 2010) to my alma mater. I’ve gotta say, he took a step up there. smile

It’s nice to see some other WMU alums on here. I hope Murray takes the program even further than did Blashill. Go Broncos.
