And with that, any speculation surrounding the future of Michigan State’s hockey coach is put to bed for now.

Ice Hockey theonlycolors.com —  Tom Anastos is the coach of MSU hockey for another season, regardless of fan (and blogger) discontent. He has told Hollis this was a five-year plan to start the rebuild and in recent interviews stated he sees it being 9 seasons before MSU was elite. I have to admit Mark Hollis often has an eye for things that us normal people miss. He put hockey in Spartan Stadium and basketball on an aircraft carrier. At this point, I'll fall in line and hope that Hollis is right and there is a renaissance coming under Anastos. I hope he isn't wrong because that could destroy what was a once proud program to something worse than just looking at Penn State in envy.
