some solid NHL talent. Now as for our National Championship.
2016-17 was Jackson's 12th season at ND and 8th tournament appearance (8 of 11 tournaments if you throw out his first year). During that span, there were three Frozen Fours and one title game. The AD's office seems pretty invested in the program and we have the right coach in place. All is required in some small incremental changes like the staff shakeup of a year ago and hopefully an uptick in recruiting. I think we'll get there.
The salaried coaching staff has not changed since Jackson's first day here. Every year or two there is a different "volunteer" coach and the only other change has been the return of John Micheletto in some undefined role as a "special assistant" to the coaching staff.
