Berlin native Gendron is new Maine ice coach
Gendron, a 55-year-old Berlin native, replaces Tim Whitehead, who was fired after 12 years as Maine’s head coach.
Gendron spent the last two years as an assistant coach at Yale, which won the national title earlier this year. He has also served as an assistant coach at the University of Massachusetts, and with the NHL’s New Jersey Devils.
Whitehead posted a 250-171-54 record at Maine. He guided the Black Bears to the national championship game as the program’s interim head coach after Walsh died of cancer in 2001.
