The return of the head Silvertip

OK, so I lied.

As I was looking for college football stories, I came across these two stories concerning the Everett Silvertips Back to The Future-like changing of the guard.

Doug Soetaert, who built the current WHL U.S. Division champions before leaving for an NHL job prior to last season. Here is the news piece and here is John Sleeper's column.

It has been tough to win the past few years in the Chiefs' division and Soetaert's return – along with the continued reign of coach Kevin Constantine – to Everett means the Silvertips aren't going to collapse anytime soon.
