Andy Murray

Western Michigan Broncos

 

1.) Who were your heroes growing up?

My mom and dad. I respected them a great deal. I liked athletes from different sports. Teachers and coaches help along the way as well.
 
 
2.) What are the big differences between coaching the pros and coaching college kids.
 
I don't think there's a difference. When I coached the blues I had young players and here at Western Michigan some of them are older then some of the Blues players. The players at the college level are very professional and the NHL players like to have fun and care just as much about playing. I don't think there is a difference.
 
 
3.) Who are some of the players on your roster, that NHL fans should keep an eye out for?
 
All 29 of them. I'm not one who talks about individual players, I am more about talking about the team. We have some good, young players. We are going to have Kyle Novak from St. Louis who's going to join are team next year, we had Kyle O'Kane who played with us this past year. We have a St. Louis connection going!
 
 
4.) What advice do you have for a aspiring hockey coach?

I think your key should be unlocking the arena in the morning, and your key should be locking the arena at night. You need to set a example by working extremely hard. Also, focus on doing a good job where you are and don't worry about coaching the next team up the ladder. Some young coaches get ahead of themselves and they are thinking about what team they want to coach next, and they forget to do a good job where they are, and they end up not having a job at all.
 
 
5.) What character items do you most look for when recruiting players?
 
We have about 6 questions for our players.
1.) Are you a good person? We are looking for good people.
2.) Are you a good listener
3.) How hard do you work?
4.) How fast can you play?
5.) Can you play on the inside?
6.) Can you make the play?
