Tony Granato has been tabbed as the new men's head coach for the Wisconsin Badgers. While I think this is an excellent choice the even "bigger" news is that he has named Mark Osiecki and Don Granato as his two assistant coaches. That to me is HUGE. Don is unbelievably respected at the USNTDP and will come with some instant ties to top recruits in that program. He's also a top notch coach in his own right. Osiecki is a fantastic coach and a masterful recruiter as well with a ton of experience. Honestly, this is like a dream come true for Badger fans and this group of coaches is practically a "super group" (considering all three were top candidates for the head job) that is riding in like the cavalry to bring Wisconsin back to prominence. The excitement around the program is very high with this announcement to say the least.
