Sacco to coach Team USA in upcoming World Championships

Ron Chenoy-US PRESSWIRE

USA Hockey believes in Joe Sacco. Proof? He's been named the head coach for the men's national team for the 2013 World Championships.

The World Championships are set for May 3rd through 19th, to take place in Helsinki, Finland, and Stockholm, Sweden. The man leading Team USA will be our very own Joe Sacco.

Part of the decision certainly has to do with the fact Sacco won't be busy then, but you can't forget his experience on the international stage in years past. From USA Hockey:

Sacco has vast experience on the international stage as both a player and coach. He served as an assistant coach for the U.S. Men's National Team at both the 2009 and 2010 International Ice Hockey Federation Men’s World Championship. As a player, he competed in the 1992 Olympic Winter Games in Albertville, France, and helped the U.S. to a fourth-place finish. He also played in six IIHF Men's World Championships (1990-92, 1994, 1996, 2002), was a member of U.S. Men's National Select Team that competed in the 2002 Deutschland Cup, and skated for Team USA at the 1989 IIHF World Junior Championship.

Haters are going to hate, but not everyone thinks Joe Sacco is all that bad behind the bench.
