LetsGoDU joins Magness Mayhem to talk Denver Hockey coaching search

We’re about a week and a half removed from the day the news broke that former University of Denver Hockey head coach Jim Montgomery would leave the Pioneers and to the Dallas Stars in the same role. Now that some time has passed and the goodbyes have been said, attention has shifted to who might replace Montgomery behind the bench.

The coaching search is starting to come into focus and decision could be made as early as later this week. It was reported last week that in addition to current assistant David Carle, current UMass-Lowell head coach Norm Bazin, former DU assistant and current Iowa Wild (AHL) head coach Derek Lalonde, and former DU assistant Steve Miller are seen as possible candidates to replace Montgomery. Magness Mayhem confirmed that report earlier this week and added a surprising name to that list in Providence head coach Nate Leaman.

I sat down and talked with Magness Mayhem to digest all of this and make some sense of the search. Head on over to Magness Mayhem to listen to our conversation about the future of Denver Hockey.

  1. Its been a while now since Monty left – anyone know when they’ll announce if it’s Miller or Carle? Gotta figure it’s soon…


  2. I just want to say that I enjoyed Montgomery’s era.Funny enough, I used to live in Dallas; and I think he actually played in a pre-season game which I attended, it was on opening night the American Airlines Arena. He’s listed in the game program I have; but that’s all I have to go on. He was a call-up player.
