Buffalo Sabres sticking with Ted Nolan as coach by signing him to 3-year contract extension

BUFFALO, N.Y. - The Buffalo Sabres have signed interim coach Ted Nolan to a contract extension beyond this season.

The team announced the news on its Twitter account early Monday.

The extension does not come as a surprise. General manager Tim Murray indicated on several occasions that the two sides were close to completing a deal.

Nolan returned for a second stint in Buffalo in mid-November, when he was hired on an interim basis. He took over for Ron Rolston, who was fired along with GM Darcy Regier, after Buffalo got off to a franchise-worst 4-15-1 start.

The Sabres (20-45-9) remain in last place, and in the process of rebuilding from scratch.

Quote of the Day

It's something that you don't really envision starting this way, but when you put the work in you don't feel like it's unwarranted. You definitely don't envision it unfolding this way, but you do think you can be successful at this level.
