Wild Coach Yeo Accepts Multi-Year Contract Extension Offer
Minnesota Wild Head Coach Mike Yeo was offered a contract extension on Saturday after carrying the team into the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs this past spring.
Wild GM Chuck Fletcher made the announcement on Saturday, signing Yeo to a multi-year contract extension in his third year at Wild head coach. Specific details such as the extension time and salary have not been disclosed.
Fletcher said during the conference, “Mike has done a very good job the last three seasons as our Head Coach and we look forward to his leadership going forward,”.
