Wilson Signs 5-Year Deal with RIT
CHN Staff Report
ROCHESTER, N.Y. RIT coach Wayne Wilson, who never worked under a contract until this past season, has signed a new five-year with the school, that keeps him there through 2014-15.
Wilson, who passed up chances to seek one of the three CCHA openings this offseason, recently led RIT to the Frozen Four for the first time.
"The grass isn't always greener,'' Wilson told the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle. "The administration has been nothing but supportive.''
RIT was 28-12-1 this past season, qualifying for the Division I NCAA Tournament for the first time. RIT defeated top-seeded Denver and then New Hampshire in the NCAA East Regional to reach the Frozen Four in Detroit, where it lost to Wisconsin.
Wilson, who just finished his 11th season as RIT head coach, was named Division I Coach of the Year, and the team was recently honored at a Rochester Red Wings minor league baseball game.
"I'm happy here," Wilson told the paper. "It's going to be awfully difficult to duplicate what we did, but I'm ready for the challenge.'
