The Idaho Steelheads and coach Brad Ralph have agreed on a two-year contract extension through the 2016-17 season, the team announced Thursday morning.
Ralph, 33, finished his second season with the Steelheads, losing in the second round of the ECHL Kelly Cup Western Conference playoffs. The Steelheads have won 84 games in two seasons under Ralph, reaching the playoffs in both years. Idaho reached the Western Conference finals in 2013.
"This is a fabulous town with great fans and Im grateful to continue coaching for a first-class organization," said Ralph, who is also the team's director of hockey operations. "I've already started working on next years team and my sights, as always, are on bringing the Kelly Cup home to Boise."
