Mike Raimbault acknowledged two years ago it would be "something special" to coach against his hometown Brandon Bobcats. He'll get that opportunity quite a bit.
Raimbault has reportedly been hired to lead the Winnipeg Wesmen out of the doldrums after winning the CCAA national championship and being national college coach of the year this season with the UNBC Timberwolves. People will no doubt read this as a burn on Brandon. Raimbault went 31-8 (20-2 in league play) as interim coach in 2007-08, but the university hired Keith Vassell. Vassell resigned two weeks ago, which is the punchline on the school.
It will be a long rebuild at Winnipeg, so here's wishing Raimbault well.
