The San Jose Sharks have extended the contract of head coach Todd McLellan, according to a TSN report.
McLellan, 45, owns a 220-108-48 record with the Sharks and has led the team to three Pacific Division titles, back-to-back appearances in the Western Conference Final (2010 & 2011), and a Presidents' Trophy in 2009.
He was named the Sharks head coach on June 12, 2008.
General manager Doug Wilson said on May 30 there would be no changes to the Sharks’ coaching staff for next season, meaning McLellan and associate coach Larry Robinson, assistant coaches Jim Johnson and Jay Woodcroft, and video coordinator Brett Heimlich would all return in the fall.
“I think they’ve done an excellent job. All of the components of it,” Wilson said. “Larry and Jimmy coming in, it makes us a complete staff that not only allows us to play the way we want to play today, it helps the younger players get ready to play. I think they did an excellent job. Very proud of the job they did.”
