New coach plans meeting with current CC assistants

New Colorado College hockey coach Mike Haviland will meet with assistants Joe Bonnett and Eric Rud to talk about the current and incoming players and their futures in the National Collegiate Hockey Conference program.

"I would like to sit down and talk to them about the players and get a feel for them," he said. "I have heard great things about them."

The longtime professional coach beat them and seven others finalists out for the job, which came open in early April when Scott Owens resigned following a 7-24-6 season.

Both expressed interest in staying on with the program before the announcement was made Friday. Rud said he had not been contacted by Haviland as of Friday afternoon.

"I am looking at all my career options," the former CC All-American defenseman said.

Bonnett did not respond to a telephone message.

Haviland expects to arrive in Colorado Springs on Sunday. A news conference or a public reception introducing Haviland is expected then.

The 46-year-old replaced Owens, who resigned after 15 seasons. The hire fills the last college head-coach opening this offseason.
