    ISU Hockey: Wierson added as associate head coach

    Have a co-worker who knows Brian Wierson. This co-worker was referreing a hockey game last night, Wierson is usually at these. He asked someone where Brian was - found out Brian had just accepted the ISU hockey job.

    I found that very interesting.

    EDIT...new info...

    Re: ISU Hockey: Murdock out, Wierson in

    Murdoch is done? Hasn't he coached hockey for something like 30 years at ISU?? Is he retiring or just quitting?

    Re: ISU Hockey: Murdock out, Wierson in

    I am not able to say, as I don't know.

    I could speculate though...

    It's no secret Murdock has been huge for ISU hockey, both in coaching and financially. Without him, the program would not likely exist today.

    It's also widely known, Murdock is not one of the easiest people to get along with.

    My thought is (purely speculation), is he finally rubbed the wrong person the wrong way and it was "mutually" decided he step down. However, I do not know if he did step down or was let go.

    Re: ISU Hockey: Murdock out, Wierson in

    I went to HS with a Brian Wierson and we played hockey as kids together. Small world, so I bet it is him.

    I am suprised Murdock made it is long as he did, growing up in Ames around the hockey program, everyone hated that guy.

    Re: ISU Hockey: Murdock out, Wierson in

    How do club sports work? Are they under the Athletic Department or are they all financially independent?

    Re: ISU Hockey: Murdock out, Wierson in

    By accepting the associate head coach position, then yes, Brian Wierson does have a job. Coach Wierson accepted this job back in the summer. Why do I know this? I am on Cyclone hockey staff, so unless they fired Murdoch since Monday (the last day I talked to him), then nothing has changed.

    Excellent. :) Thanks for clearing that up. I'm going to edit my original post and the title.

    Re: ISU Hockey: Wierson added as associate head coach

    I have Brian's business card in front of me:

    Brian Weirson
    Associate Head Coach


    Wasn't there a thread a while back about a vote by the players and Murdoch?
