Yale set to hire Red Gendron as assistant

Red Gendron, as assistant coach at UMass-Amherst the past six seasons, will be named associate head coach at Yale, the Register has learned. He'll replace Kyle Wallack, now the head coach of the Indiana Ice of the USHL, on the Bulldogs staff.

The deal is expected to be finalized Friday.

Gendron and Yale coach Keith Allain have known each other for over 20 years, and worked together in USA Hockey. Gendron was an assistant to Allain for the U.S. entry in the World Junior Championships in 2001 and 2002.

Gendron has extensive college and pro experience. He was with the New Jersey Devils organization as a scout and coach for 11 years, serving two seasons as head coach of their AHL affiliate in Albany from 2002-04. He was also an assistant on the University of Maine's 1993 NCAA title squad.
