Michigan will be in search for a new athletic director, after current AD Bill Martin retires in September. That could be a big decision from a hockey standpoint because it's sounding like I've greatly underestimated the Big Ten Network's insistence on ruining--or at least greatly shaking up--college hockey. So, you know, if MIchigan hires a bald ex-football coach whose son once microwaved a live bird, we could be in some trouble.
Also, Miami athletic director Brad Bates is a Michigan alum and from Port Huron, Michigan. He should be a solid candidate for the job.
