North Dakota extends Hakstol, assistants
Grand Forks, ND (Sports Network) - The University of North Dakota announced Wednesday the five-year contract extension for men's hockey coach Dave Hakstol, and extended associate head coach Cary Eades and assistant coach Dane Jackson.
"This is an excellent package for UND Athletics and the hockey program," said Tom Buning, North Dakota athletic director. "We've been working on this package for a while, the administration put on the finishing touches."
Hakstol, who has taken North Dakota to three straight Frozen Fours in his three years as head coach, will earn a base salary of $210,000 per year, with added incentives of up to 25 percent of that number.
"I am happy that this package recognizes our entire coaching staff. It provides stability for our coaching team and allows us the opportunity to continue to work together in what we consider the best place in hockey. We can continue to concentrate on what is important; developing young men and winning hockey games," said Hakstol.
