Wild To Retain Yeo

Monday, May 13th, 2013 at 7:05 am

Wild fans got one key question answered over the weekend when news surfaced that head coach Mike Yeo won’t be fired this offseason.

The 39-year old Yeo was in some hot water with fans after his team fizzled down the stretch in the regular season and lost 4-1 to the Chicago Blackhawks in the opening round of the playoffs.

Yeo apparently met with Wild GM Chuck Fletcher and was told he will be back again next season. Yeo is the second coach hired by Fletcher without prior experience as an NHL head coach. Todd Richards was fired after two seasons.
