UMD Men’s Hockey Coach Scott Sandelin Signs Contract Extension
Sandelin's extension will keep him with UMD through the 2024-25 season.
DULUTH, Minn. – UMD men’s hockey head coach Scott Sandelin agreed to a four-year contract extension, UMD Athletics announced on Friday morning.
Sandelin, who completed his 19th season as the bench boss with the program’s second straight national championship, is now signed with the Bulldogs through the 2024-25 season. Sandelin has led the Bulldogs to three titles and is the winningest coach in program history.
Sandelin had interviewed with the Anaheim Ducks of the NHL earlier in the week. In an interview with Matt Wellens of the Duluth News Tribune, Sandelin said the deal was agreed to before he got the call from Anaheim.
The new contract increases his base salary to $400,000 per season in 2019-20, and will get up to $450,000 at the end of the contract. This agreement is pending University of Minnesota Board of Regent approval when it meets later this month.
