Hakstol Signs New Contract

UND has signed Dave Hakstol for the longterm.

Hakstol inked a new, six-year deal that will take him through the 2017-18 season. His base salary will be $300,000.

Since he took over at UND in 2004, the Sioux have scored more goals and won more games than anyone in the WCHA. He has led the Sioux to two MacNaughton Cups, four Broadmoor Trophies and five Frozen Fours.

The Sioux also have been consistent, earning home ice, a Final Five trip and an NCAA tournament berth in each of the last eight seasons. Michigan is the only other team in the country that has made the NCAAs in each of the last eight years.

More will be coming later.

Most victories since 2004

219 — Michigan (Red Berenson)
216 — Boston College (Jerry York)
213 — North Dakota (Dave Hakstol)
200 — Denver (George Gwozdecky)
197 — Miami (Rico Blasi)

    Glad to hear the good news of the extension for Coach Hakstol. Coach Hakstol and the Coaching Staff have done a good job consistently keeping the Sioux in National Championship contention every year, not an easy feat, with players moving rapidly to the professional ranks year in and year out. A National Championship is really the only accomplishment Coach Hakstol has yet to earn. It will come, hopefully sooner, rather than later. GO SIOUX!!! !!! !!!

    Do you have or can you compile a list of college hockey coaches salaries?
    It would be interesting to see those numbers.

    So glad we have a coach who the players love and respect, and does not walk across the ice during a game. Deserves every penny and more!

    Is it sad that I immediately looked up what Craig Bohl makes to make sure Hak makes for than Bohl does? In case anyone was wondering, Hak makes 100k more than Bohl does.

    Brad, this is completely irrelevant, but is there an online album out there of med/hi-res photos of the Sioux? I’m looking for photos like the ones posted around the Ralph, cool, unique, or older. I tweeted at Jayson Hajdu posing a similar question, but he did not respond.

    I wonder if there is an “out” clause. Can’t imagine a “buy out” but maybe its standard form to have one, but maybe a “opt out”, in case H gets a better offer.

    Congratulations Dave. My family and I are elated that you will be giving us 6 more years (minimum) of quality Sioux hockey. I promise not to hit my golf ball at you at the SiouxPer Swing in Detroit Lakes this year. See you at the 19th hole….
