San Jose, CA (Sports Network) - The San Jose Sharks re-signed head coach Ron Wilson to a multi-year contract on Monday. In addition, assistant coaches
Tim Hunter and Rob Zettler also agreed to new multi-year deals.
Wilson led the Sharks to a 43-21-12-6 mark for a franchise-best 104 points in his second season with the club last year. San Jose finished first in
the Pacific Division and second in the Western Conference, eventually losing to the Calgary Flames in the conference finals.
Wilson, who replaced former Sharks coach Darryl Sutter in December 2002, has a career mark of 62-52-19-12 with San Jose. He has a lifetime coaching
mark of 374-358-101-20 with Washington, Anaheim and San Jose.
"The team's performance on the ice last season under the leadership of this coaching staff speaks for itself," said general manager Doug Wilson.
"We're very pleased to have this group back and are looking forward to even greater successes as we go forward."
Ron Wilson will also coach the United States in the 2004 World Cup of Hockey that takes place August 30 to September 14 in seven venues across six
countries and two continents.
