I clearly heard the rim shot off of the snare drum there.




The next guy to take this job is going to have to be tough. From all accounts both Rothstien and Klatt were/are nice guys. That is not going to work in GR. The next guy is going to have to be like Randolph who basically says it is my way or you hit the highway. And that includes your mommy and daddy too. It is going to have to be a guy who makes those parents say "oh no, not him" on the first pass. This will be interesting.

I simply said - are you returning as head coach at Grand Rapids? His response... "No."

I'm not saying he couldn't return. Who the heck knows. But the notion that he has decided to was made up by someone and is spread like wild-fire.
So you think Klatt would have said, "yes" when you asked him if he was coming back? Not on planet earth! Second, GR is a rabid hockey town. Heck the house pets in GR dream of their next championship. Combined with the fact it's 2016, the miles wouldn't come between GR and their next coach.

And leave Tom Foolery out of this; Tom never hurt anybody. I am just excited for the orange that's al :)
Well, Trent told me (GRHS Hockey Online) that he accepted the job initially before anyone else, he told me he was leaving before anyone else and he has been nothing but transparent. If he was returning, GRHS Hockey Online is going to be the first to get official word. So, do I think he would have said yes if it were true? Yes. We talked about more than just that, too.

Plus, had he chosen to return, there would be a process that would include the school board. They would have to approve the rescinding of the resignation.
Thanks. I've been hearing the rumors, too.

If you can, please clear one thing up:

I know we've all (well, most of us) have tried to read between the lines on a lot of this stuff, and as a result, one thing that's been out there is that Klatt was "forced out." I'm not certain this is true, and if not, the notion certainly isn't fair to Klatt. I believe he quit entirely on his own. Comments on GRHS Hockey's Facebook page also indicate that many in Rapids believe this. So....Was he forced out?
Trent was not forced out. My understanding is that players, parents and admin all wish he wouldn't have left. But, no, he was not forced out.
Correct. He didn't leave because players and parents wanted him to. Really wish he were staying. We have issues to address like most successful programs with high expectations. Everyone in the organization top to bottom needs to work on it, not just this years players, parents, and coaches. If nothing else we have shown several times that talent alone just isn't enough. Head down, keep working.

This is exactly what Clafton did at Greenway. He made it very clear who was in charge and made a statement that players will do what he says, not what their parents say. I'll give credit to the Greenway parents and armchair coaches who gave him a chance but you could tell by the first game what a different team Greenway was. That style of coaching might be more difficult to implement in Rapids, maybe that's why Clafton says he is staying at Greenway.

The day he took the job Trent said that he already doesn't see eye to eye with parents because they have the best for their child in mind, while Trent has the best of the team in mind. Klatt wasn't soft. He hurt some feelings and bruised some egos like any good coach will. See Stamophar, Stejskal, Stefan and others.

All we need now is for Coach Klatt to have an evil identical twin brother and we have a good base for a soap opera :D

Nothing I said was inaccurate. (And part of my "day job" is GRHS Hockey Online, which is wildly popular.) Trent didn't meet with administration until today. So, until today - the answer was no. So...anyone who reported yesterday or the day before that he was returning was ultimately guessing that because the community and students were trying to recruit him back that he would say yes and the board would approve it.

It's all good Boblee....I would have done the same thing with my purple, and leave the speculation to everybody else. Well done! You serve your orange well =)))

Thank you! Also - hopefully this clears up the thought that Klatt was forced out, facing suspension or anything else.

It's true today, tomorrow or any of the 366 days in this year. Bad timing is all.

Exactly, that's why it was intended to be a joke.... I do hope they can put this thread to sleep now!!

I didn't mean to imply that Klatt was soft, but Greenway parents (hard to believe) are easier to deal with than the Rapids parents. What little I know of Klatt I wouldn't presume he was soft. He did a great job getting Rapids to state and third place, I would find it hard to second guess him.

Rapids parents this year were a rare breed. Some will not be missed.
