"I'm pleased that the administration and the program are looking ahead," Berenson said in a release. "I'm excited about the opportunity to remain at Michigan, especially with the current Yost Ice Arena renovations, the move to the Big Ten and for our incoming recruits. We have a great staff here, and I'm looking forward to the next few years at Michigan."

Berenson, who has led Michigan since 1984, owns two national titles (1996, 1998), has made a record 22 consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances and has reached the Frozen Four on 11 occasions. Berenson is a two-time Central Collegiate Hockey Association (CCHA) Coach of the Year (1994, 2008) and earned National Coach of the Year honors in 2008.
