No, I'm not calling for Berenson to leave anytime soon. But the topic came up in a thread below and I've thought about it enough over the past 10 years... so here's a thread.
Most likely, it'll be a smooth transition to Pearson/Powers. There are issues with this however:
1) Many would argue that this type of change doesn't infuse new blood that the program may need.
2) Which of the two gets the head gig and does the other stay?
So, I'll go off the board and suggest an outside candidate: Seth Appert. former DU assistant & current coach at RPI. He's got recruiting ties to the USHL (due to his WCHA roots), has demonstrated an ability to recruit the USNT (his current role at RPI), and has actually turned perennial ECAC also ran RPI around with top recruiting classes the last two years. He's young and can recruit and has experience in two different leagues.
