Staying put: Russell given one-year extension

The Halifax Mooseheads have extended the contract of head coach and general manager Cam Russell for one more season.

The Halifax Mooseheads have extended the contract of head coach and general manager Cam Russell for one more season.

Coming off consecutive last-place finishes and losses in 104 of the past 136 games, Mooseheads majority owner Bobby Smith confirmed yesterday he was keeping Russell around in 2010-11 for a fifth season as a head coach and second as GM in a move that was generally assumed.

The deal had been done since last month but the move was kept behind closed doors until this week.

Russell has a career head coaching record of 106-143-9-18 with a winning percentage of .384. Only Danny Grant (1997-98, .379) has a lower winning percentage as a head coach of the Mooseheads.
