DULUTH, MN– The University of Minnesota Duluth and Bulldogs men’s hockey head coach Scott Sandelin have agreed to a four-year contract extension.
According to the University, the extension will keep the three-time National Championship-winning coach behind the Bulldog bench through the 2024-25 season.
“I want to publicly thank (UMD Athletic Director) Josh Berlo and (UMD Chancellor) Lendley Black for their continued support and commitment to our men’s hockey program,” Sandelin wrote. “I am so fortunate to work with a great coaching and support staff and some tremendous student-athletes. We have worked hard to build a culture of excellence both on and off the ice and I look forward to being a part of that in the years to come.”
The extension comes after Sandelin reportedly interviewed with the NHL’s Anaheim Ducks recently.
Sandelin concluded his program-record 19th season with the Bulldogs this past April by directing UMD to its second consecutive NCAA championship and its third national title since 2011.
This agreement is pending University of Minnesota Board of Regent approval at its upcoming June meeting
