Tim Christian among Five Finalists to Replace Former LSSC player Doug Ross as Alabama-Huntsville Head Coach

Saturday the University of Alabama in Huntsville Athletics department announced current Lake Superior State University assistant coach Tim Christian was among the finalists for the school’s head hockey coach vacancy with the retirement of coach Doug Ross, LSSC 1971-72. In addition to Christian the other four finalists to replace Ross are Tom Carroll (New England College), Danton Cole (Bowling Green State University), Doc DelCastillo (University of Nebraska-Omaha) and Lance West (University of Alabama-Huntsville).

“With the super finish to our season, we were extremely pleased with the quality and number of candidates that expressed interest in the position,” noted Athletics Director Jim Harris. “Trimming the pool to the five finalists was a difficult process for the search committee and the five finalists are all extremely qualified. Narrowing the field further will be a tough task with such a talented group.”

Plans are for the search committee to wrap up on-campus interviews next week and present one or more candidates to UAH President Dr. Frank Franz and Harris for the final decision. Barring any unforeseen delays, the department plans to announce the third coach in the program’s history the first week of May.

Christian, a Grand Rapids, Michigan native played collegiate hockey at Ferris State University from 1991-1995 leading the team in scoring three of his four years at FSU. Christian then went on to play in the East Coast Hockey League for five seasons including playing for former LSSU head coach Frank Anzalone from 1995-1998. Christian came to LSSU in 2002 to join Frank Anzalone during his second stint in the Sault. Christian was retainied at LSSU by current head coach Jim Roque after Anzalone was dismissed following the 2003-04 season.
