FARGO - Dean Blais' first year with the Fargo Force was a great one. It was also his last one.

Blais was named head men's hockey coach at the University of Nebraska-Omaha on Friday.


"This is quite a thrill for me," Blais said. "... I'm happy to be a Maverick and hopefully we're gonna win a lot of games."

He resigned as coach and general manager of the USHL franchise, but will remain

co-owner of the Force.
