They must've stolen his heart with that "forecheck" they implemented on their playoff run a couple years ago :lol:

The question on everyone's mind is....will he have to follow the skinny jeans dress code behind the bench? :)

Meh! STA….? Really? Money matters legacy not so much. Go to Highland Park, Park, Simley, etc.heck, stick it to your school bored and go to Cloquet! STA just makes you a sell out! Sorry,but taking a job at STA……really?

While I do not consider myself pro or anti Mike Randolph, isn’t it time to be done? Seems very odd that a 60 something year old person would disrupt his life to be an assistant in a town 2 1/2 hours away. The hockey world will survive without you.

I would assume hes taking the assistant job as a filler for the winter. I would bet he will take a head coach job somewhere in the cities in the 22-23 season.

Heard today that there is some talk that Randolph would be named the associate head coach. Purpose would be to continue the all time win total count.

So it’s not just all about the kids? I’d have had more respect for him if he’d have chosen to walk off into the sunset.

After what East hockey was before he got there and what he made of it, your respect/disrespect is moot. He deserved better than what he got from the Duluth School Board and East Administration. However he decides to end his coaching career is justified.

Point being when your hanging on to break a record, it’s not “about the kids” as he seems to always want to try and point out. He clearly has left his mark and done some very good things. His current actions give the appearance it’s now all about him.

I mean, I suppose Randolph deserves the benefit of the doubt. But not all stories have happy endings, and sometimes people can be too stubborn for their own good. Randolph can certainly continue his coaching career however he sees fit, but we all don’t have to agree with those decisions. I don’t really understand the draw for him or STA; it feels like jamming a square peg into a round hole just because you can.

If the man wants to keep coaching, then by golly, the man should keep coaching. I sincerely doubt it has anything to do with the record book...coaches coach.

But STA? Really? I lose the justification at that point. Now you are a mercenary at place…..I will leave it there.

Seriously! Let the man be. So what if he is going to STA. Some of you have a really deep-seeded hatred for the private schools.

Question, if Mike is/was so innocent and the reason he left was strictly parental pressure; what did the investigation ever turn up? I know, I know its not public; BUT Mike must know the findings. Why hasnt he held another press conference to show everyone?

He doesnt know the outcome, as soon as he resigned they stopped the investigation and swept it under the rug. Which I think in the end is what the school wanted

Agree! Why walk away from something he enjoys.

Yes, the ones that sandbag for a decade. STA is now where they belong and I enjoy watching them play again...

How old was Willard Ikola when he decided to retire? If memory serves he coached high school hockey for over 30 years, and I don't recall folks calling for him to retire.
