Assistant job posted

POSITION: ASSISTANT COACH, MEN’S HOCKEY, #07-044

DEADLINE: 8/11/2006

SALARY: Commensurate with experience

DESCRIPTION OF POSITION: Assist in all phases of coaching a Division I men’s hockey program to include but not limit to: assist with all competitions, practices, games and travel; teach game skills and strategies; oversee academic supervision of players and recruiting of student athletes. Teach minimum number of classes in Physical Education Exercise Science. Participate in public relations, alumni functions and fundraising. Other duties as assigned by the head coach.

CRITERIA FOR SELECTION: Requires a bachelor’s degree. Prefer successful hockey coaching experience. Desire experience in player evaluation and recruitment. Knowledge of NCAA rules and regulations. Must have experience in the area of on-ice skill development. Must have successful playing experience, pro-experience preferred. Prefer experience in developing and implementing successful penalty killing systems.

....That's the ad UND posted on its Web site, and at least one big name will be thrown into the hat.

Steve Johnson said Friday that he will apply for the job, and based on the "criteria for selection," Johnson will be a strong candidate. He fits all of those requirements, especially the ones about evaluating, recruiting and coaching players.

He's built nine winning teams in 10 seasons in the USHL. As the GM in Lincoln, Johnson was largely responsible for bringing in the players and developing them. He is close with every coach in the USHL and he deals with the top midget programs in the country often.

He definitely wants to get back to Grand Forks. Yes, he would have to take a pay cut to get the UND assistant job. But Johnson said, "That part doesn't even matter. I've discussed that with my family and it's not even a factor."

Of course, there are many other coaches out there who could be strong candidates, too. I mentioned a few in the article. I've heard James Patrick's name tossed around, but he recently took a job with the Buffalo Sabres organization replacing Scott Arniel, who left to become the coach of the Manitoba Moose and promptly nabbed UND assistant Brad Berry (interesting cycle, huh?). Therefore, I don't think Patrick will apply.

It's been reported that Dane Jackson is a strong candidate to become an assistant at the AHL level in the Sabres organization.

There certainly will be many others interested. I'll do my best to keep everyone posted as the resumes come in.

Last time it was advertised two years ago, I believe the salary listed was around $50,000.

You would think if they want a top quality coach they would have to pay more than 50,000.00 a year. Of course I think Brad is right. Does that include any perks like say a membership to the GF country club?
