I think this was definitely the right decision. The recruits need to know who is in charge now with Coach`s passing. They certainly would know Guite from the recruiting process. The following BDN article, 

https://bangordailynews.com/2021/04/14/sports/umaine-sports/ben-guite-named-interim-head-coach-of-umaine-mens-hockey-team/

says a small search committee will start the hiring process. We will all know this will take a couple of months so during the interim they know Guite is a strong candidate.

Coach Guite is a solid placeholder for sure. Stability is important right now. Going forward, for wins and losses, for filling the Alfond to the gills the next permanent head coach needs to be Jim Montgomery. His resume` is better than any listed in the Mahoney article and it`s not really close.
