RALPH SIGNS TWO-YEAR EXTENSION
Coach Brad Ralph is not yet halfway through the first season of his one-year contract. But hes shown the organization enough to earn a contract extension.
Ralph is now signed through the 2014-15 season.
We were confident that we got the right man when we went through the hiring process over the summer, and everything hes done since arriving has supported that feeling, Steelheads President Eric Trapp said. There wasnt a need to wait.
The 32-year-old Ralph spent the previous two seasons as the coach of the Augusta RiverHawks of the Southern Professional Hockey League.
