It is official.  Sources have confirmed that the University of Maine hockey coach Tim Whitehead, has been fired.

Whitehead, who had one year left on his contract, lead the Maine Black Bears to a dismal 11-19-8 record this season.  He had coached the team for the last 12 years, with mixed results.  His career started with a promising 154-69-26 over the first six year, followed by another six years with a record of 96-102-28.

As a Maine hockey fan, I applaud the decision of the university. Thank you, for finally acknowledging that mediocrity has no place in the Alfond.

Today, I am a very proud Maine Alumni and I am very excited for the 2013/14 hockey season.

Fill the Steins to dear old Maine, Shout til the rafters ring.  Stand, and drink your toast once again, let every loyal Maine fan sing. *Drink, Drink, Drink* Drink to all the happy hours, drink to the careless days, Drink to Maine our Alma Mater, College of our hearts always!
