Three More Years For Red Berenson

from MGoBlue,

University of Michigan ice hockey head coach Gordon “Red” Berenson has accepted a three-year contract offer from athletic director Dave Brandon to direct the U-M program through the 2012-13 season. Berenson, who played for Michigan from 1960-62, has been the head coach at his alma mater for the past 26 seasons.

“We’ve been doing a one-year contract of late and it seems like we’re spending a lot of time talking about when I’m going to retire,” Berenson said. “I think we can put that to bed for awhile and just focus on what we’re doing. The situation at Michigan is a little clearer in terms of recruitment or leadership of the program or what my future is. It’s pretty simple. I’ve thought about it a lot. I definitely was thinking about leaving earlier, but my passion has really been with this team and these players. They’re making a commitment to the program and I want my commitment to be clear as well.”

That’s funny. I thought that the man couldn’t coach worth a lick. LOL
