After getting back from baseball practice this morning, I was rather surprised to find out that assistant coach Mike Bavis had resigned at BU. This is according to a USHR report. He had held the same position for the last 15 years. Bavis played at BU in the early '90's and was on three Frozen Four teams.
Personally, I think the best replacement for Bavis would be Albi O'Connell. O'Connell was the lone captain of the 1999 BU squad. Currently, he is the assistant coach at Harvard. Before, he was at Northeastern, were he was able to land players like John Gaudreau and John Gillies, before both of them decommitted after then NU head coach Greg Cronin left the program.
