According to the Lowell Sun, UMass Lowell coach Norm Bazin has signed a contract extension through the 2021-22 season.
Bazin confirmed the new deal Tuesday at the Hockey East media day at the TD Garden.
Earlier this offseason, Bazin reportedly turned down a job offer from the Vancouver Canucks to coach their AHL team, the Utica Comets.
Under Bazin, the River Hawks have compiled a 151-68-21 record in six seasons. He has guided UML to five consecutive Hockey East championship game appearances, five NCAA tournament berths, three Hockey East tournament championships and two regular-season titles.
“It’s certainly a privilege to stay here and coach the team for the foreseeable future,” Bazin said to the Sun. “It’s pretty special to guide the program you played at.”
