Yale has named Dennis “Red” Gendron as an assistant coach for the 2011-2012 season.
Gendron, who will be replacing Kyle Wallack on the Bulldogs’ bench, was an assistant at Massachusetts the past six seasons.
A three-time captain and 1979 graduate of New England College, Gendron has spent the last 21 years coaching, with 11 of those with the New Jersey Devils’ organization as a scout and assistant coach.
“We are excited to have someone with his experience on our staff,” Yale head coach Keith Allain said in a statement. “I’ve known Red for 30 years and think he will be a huge addition to our program.”
Gendron has also been an assistant coach at Maine and was an assistant with the United States entries at the 1993, 2001 and 2002 World Junior Championships.
