    It would be a huge drop in pay for Mark. Lynn Kanuka would be a great choice but for her it would be a pay cut too and she's Head Coach material.

    Hillary Stellingwerff? Maybe she’s getting bored of waiting for Fougner to retire.

    What's the pay? I bet it's under $40k per annum in other words it's not a livable wage in

    Fulltime? Wasn't the previous coach a fulltime teacher?

    Likely going to appeal to a local. Requirement of a level 2 coach eliminates a recent graduate.

    Besnik Mecce from VOC has produced great middle distance runners. He might be the man for the job..

    It looks like Laurier wants someone with building skills who already knows recruiting and how to work with university age athletes. I imagine he will have a national search and pull someone who has had success at the university level previously. Being from Ontario and seeing what Brant has done with Queen's the last few years and the Physi-Kult high school group I would have to think he would be in the mix. Didn't he own a restaurant a few years ago? Would this job be enough to pull him away from Queen's and Kingston? He comments on here sometimes I wonder what his silence on this topic means?

    Two issues come to mind?

    1. Cost of living is significantly higher in YVR.
    2. Many might consider that a lateral move.
