The Truth Uncovered About Doc DelCastillo

Danny Martin, my esteemed colleague over at the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner has posted a very interesting, serious article on the resignation of former Nanook Hockey head coach Doc DelCastillo.

Several rumors have circulated throughout the university about such accusations as sexual harassment of  two separate women. Personally, I chose to not believe them. I've talked with Doc several times, and I never got the impression he was that type of person. But, granted, all of our conversations revolved around hockey. I would have been under the impression that if sexual harassment was really involved, charges would have been filed, and Doc would have been off the team a lot sooner than the end of the season.

Documents were obtained from the University through the Alaska Public Records act through litigation. All the details of his cases are covered in the article, which I highly recommend you read. Feel free to sound off in the comments.

If you want my real opinion, going through what we have back then, it makes you appreciate what we have now a lot more. Dallas was in the running for the head coach spot same year that Doc was. Think of what could have happened if Dallas had gotten the job instead of Doc. We would have kept tons more quality players, like Landon Novotney, Nathan Lawrence, Jeff Penner, Tyler Eckford, etc. It is really sad
