College Hockey:
Report: Gwozdecky a candidate at Alabama-Huntsville

According to WHNT in Alabama, ousted Denver coach George Gwozdecky is a candidate for the vacant Alabama-Huntsville head coaching position and spent Wednesday afternoon on campus.

Reportedly, Gwozdecky was seen walking into Spragins Hall with UAH athletics director E.J. Brophy.

It is unclear if Gwozdecky has actually interviewed, but the TV station did say that “it seems like Gwozdecky is on the short list as a replacement.”

Gwozdecky was fired in April after 19 seasons at Denver.

Kurt Kleinendorst, who coached UAH during the 2012-13 season, resigned in late May to pursue professional coaching opportunities.

    Hard to see the Gwoz behind there bench but if he likes a challenge this would be it.

    Wow, that would be a coup for Alabama-Huntsville.

      Agreed. Going from the brink of having your program dissolved to landing Gwoz is crazy.

    He would give the program instant credibility, a winning culture and very formidable recruiting prowess. I would not bet against Gwoz if he takes on this challenge.
