Red Berenson Retires From Michigan

In what was a widely speculated eventuality, the University of Michigan will be searching for a new Head Coach for its hockey team.

After thirty three seasons, Red Berenson has decided his tenure at Michigan as the Head Coach has come to an end.

Berenson is one of four college hockey coaches to amass more than 800 career wins. He went 848-426-92 in 1,366 games. Only Jerry York (1,033), the late Ron Mason (924) and Jack Parker (897) won more games. Berenson also guided the Wolverines to a record 22 consecutive appearances in the NCAA tournament (1991-2002).

Berenson, also won two national championships in 1996 and 1998.

Second year Athletic Director Warde Manuel will now have the task of reviewing what will likely be a very long list of applicants for the job.  That said, the eventual successor will have some very big shoes to fill behind the Wolverine bench.

TJHN will update this story as more information becomes available.
