It was reported earlier, and I’ve recently confirmed, that Jim Scanlan will be named the new Bemidji State women’s head hockey coach.
Scanlan is a former Bemidji State All-American goaltender and has been coaching hockey at East Grand Forks High School for what feels like forever. He recently lead the Green Wave girls team to the Class A state championship game, where they took second in the state.
The press conference begins at 3 p.m. in the Beaver Pride room on the BSU campus, but if you can’t be there it looks like they’ll have a livestream of the presser here.
I’ll have more after the presser, but this looks like a great hire for the Beavers.
