Kevin Houle for NU Women's Hockey Coach sign now

We do not know 100\% for certain the details of this case, but we feel something needs to be said. Please excuse us if we have our facts wrong.

As concerned fans, friends and family of the Northeastern women's hockey team, we feel our voice must be heard. Recently the head coach of the team resigned after four losing seasons and the search for a new coach began. What we have heard is that a very successful coach, Mr. Kevin Houle, is interested. Mr Houle is a three-time defending National Coach of the Year and has taken his Div. III NCAA team to two consecutive NCAA titles. He is also an assistant coach for Team USA and helped that team win the world championships recently. If he is not the best candidate, I don't know who is.

There have been rumblings that the "board" (whoever that may be) or alumni want to have a former Northeastern player take over the reigns. There is talk of looking bad for not having more female coaches at the university etc etc. While hiring an alumnus of the program is a great publicity move, isn't winning the best kind of publicity? If an institution is worried about seeming sexist for not hiring a woman, ask yourself this: Isn't it just as sexist to NOT hire the most qualified candidate because he is a man?

The women's hockey team is talented, and they just need the right coach. Kevin Houle has proved he can coach, while others have no head coaching experience. The last time Northeastern hired a coach, they hired an alumnus and thought it would be great. Look what happened. Don't go down that same route this time. Learn from past mistakes. It's time to try a new approach. The team has not been successful for quite some time; it's time to turn it around with the BEST coach available. Do the right thing.

Thank you for listening.
