June 27, 2013, Charlottetown, PEI (ISN) – UPEI Athletics and Recreation announced this week the contract signing of men’s basketball head coach Tim Kendrick to a three-year extension through to the end of the 2015–16 season.

“We’re very excited to make this announcement,” said UPEI Athletics and Recreation Director Bill Schurman. “Tim has done a great job turning the program around to take annual runs at both AUS and CIS 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.”

Coach Kendrick has led the Panthers to two successive AUS third-place finishes, and an AUS record of 26 wins and 14 losses, with an overall record (including exhibition games) of 35 wins and 27 losses.

“I’m thrilled to be here with the UPEI Panthers. I want to thank UPEI’s Athletics and Recreation department staff and the University for making this possible for me,” said Kendrick. “My family loves it here on PEI, and we’re making this our home. A big thank you to the Green & White Club, and all other supporters for all that you do and continue to do for this great program,” he added. “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.”
