Richardson happy to return to Binghamton

The news that Luke Richardson was returning as head coach of the Binghamton Senators broke Friday and was confirmed by the team on Tuesday. Fox 40 spoke with Richardson over the phone regarding the one-year contract extension and he says he couldn't be happier. He says he likes taking it one year at a time because he only wants to coach as long as he enjoys it.

"I always said I want to make sure I'm at 100% of enjoyment and loving it so I can give everything to the young guys and the organization, otherwise I wouldn't be doing my best," Richardson said. "I felt great after the season. I was really happy with the way our team came along the last few months and did really well especially against all the top teams. It was disappointing not making the playoffs just because we were too far behind. But, I think that gave us a bit of a boost at the end of the year to really prepare and get ready for another good year. I think still coming back and adding new veterans and new young guys, I think we're really looking forward to having a great year."

Richardson was rumored to be a candidate for one of several NHL Head Coaching jobs open, but he says the phone never rang.

The B-Sens home opener is scheduled for October 10th. The team's annual open house will be held Satruday at the Arena from 12-3.
