Wallack leaving Yale

Kyle Wallack, associate head coach at Yale the last two seasons and a key figure as the team's recruiting coordinator, is leaving to become head coach and general manager of the USHL's Indiana Ice.

It's a blow for Yale, but a great opportunity for Wallack, who aspires to be a college or pro head coach. He told me today he's happy in New Haven, and had no reason to leave other than to pursue his career goals.

"Being a head coach and GM should open more doors," Wallack said. "I'd love nothing more to come back to Yale in 15 years as the head coach."

Wallack, outgoing and funny, was a major asset as a recruiter and well-liked, if not loved, in the locker room. He said he's spent much of the last two days contacting players and recruits to update the situation. His deal with Indiana is for three years.
