Herb Brooks says his most recent stint as U-S Olympic hockey coach will be his last. Brooks led team U-S-A to the silver medal at the Salt Lake City games and is most famous for leading the “miracle on ice” team the gold medal during the 1980 Olympics. Brooks feels it is time to pass the torch, and he says there are some fine young coaches in the U-S who can take over.Brooks says while the ultimate goal was to win the gold medal there was nothing wrong with earning the silver. He says any one of six teams could’ve won the gold. He says you could play the tournament again a week later and the results may’ve been different.Brooks made his comments at a Waterloo Blackhawks game over the weekend where he was back at work scouting.
