Berenson, Michigan agree to extension

Ann Arbor, MI (Sports Network) - The University of Michigan signed fabled hockey head coach Gordon "Red" Berenson to a one-year contract extension through the 2009-10 campaign, athletic director Bill Martin announced Tuesday.

Berenson, who played at Michigan from 1960-62, has been coaching at his alma mater for the past 25 seasons.

"Red Berenson is truly a legendary figure as a player and a coach here at Michigan," Martin said. "I am exceptionally happy that Red has agreed to extend his contract."

A native of Regina, Saskatchewan, Berenson has guided the Wolverines to an NCAA-record 18 consecutive national tournament appearances, capturing the title in 1996 and 1998. Berenson's 670 career wins rank seventh all-time.
