A Good Friend becomes a DU Hockey Coach

It's not everyday you see a good friend's name in the headlines. Today I did:

Michael Zucker Named Volunteer Assistant Hockey Coach
DENVER - Two-time National Coach of the Year George Gwozdecky has tabbed Michael Zucker as the new volunteer assistant hockey coach for the seven-time NCAA national champion Denver Pioneers. Zucker arrives at DU after spending the last three years as an assistant coach with the Western Hockey League's (WHL) Everett Silvertips.

"We are pleased to name Michael Zucker as our new volunteer assistant coach," Gwozdecky said. "Michael brings a lot of coaching and tremendous technical video experience to our program."

I first met Mr. Zucker when I had a contracting gig at Douglas Country way back in 2001. He was an excellent Software Developer at the time and impressed me with his knowledge of agile development. I've stayed in touch with him over the years and it's great to hear he's moving back to D-town.

What's more impressive is that he's following his dream. This guy is someone who makes very good rates developing software and teaching others how to do the same. This year, he's going to give all that up, live off his savings and do something he's always wanted to do. With a big-name hockey school like DU, I'm sure it's an excellent decision. Congrats Zucker!
