Tim Kendrick has been given a three-year extension as UPEI’s men’s basketball coach.
The deal runs through the 2015–16 season.
“I’m thrilled to be here with the UPEI Panthers,” Kendrick said in a news release. “My family loves it here on PEI, and we’re making this our home.”
He thanked the athletics and recreation department, the university and the Green & White Club for their support.
“I promise that our team will not be outworked, and I want to ensure the great people of this Island that we will do our best to achieve great success—both in the classroom and on the court,” Kendrick said.
The Nova Scotia native has led the Panthers to back-to-back third-place finishes in the Atlantic University Sport with a combined 26-14 record.
“We’re very excited to make this announcement,” said athletics and recreation director Bill Schurman. “Tim has done a great job turning the program around to take annual runs at both AUS and (Canadian Interuniversity Sport) championships. We appreciate his support of student-athlete academic success, Panther Academy, and community engagement. We’re very fortunate to have Tim as a member of our coaching staff.”
