The Lancers parted company with Brian Kaufman today according to a story on Omaha.com. Assistant Coach Michael was let go also, but Dan Ellis is still with the team as of now. Wondering who they might bring in.

I hope not... I like Dan, but you saw what happened with the last promotion of an assistant to head coach. We had a 23 year run of playoff appearances but have failed to qualify for the last 2 years.

They really have fallen apart...

Not only is it a shame since they used to be one of the top (if not the top) USHL franchises...

...it impacts UNO's recruiting efforts...

I think Dan needs more time & experience as an assistant before moving up to a Head Coach role. They need to not rush him.

The funny thing is, some Lancer fans used to think they under performed under Hastings. I always found that to be crazy. Honestly, they have not been as good since he left.
