London Lightning sign coach Michael Ray Richardson for another year - Nov 2, 2012

The London Lightning have locked up coach Michael Ray Richardson through the 2013-14 season

Michael Ray Richardson said that he has signed a one-year extension to his current contract and short of a job offer in the National Basketball League, Michael Ray Richardson will be with the Lightning through this year and the next.

Michael Ray Richardson signed a two-year-deal with the club when they came into existence along with the National Baskeball League of Canada last year.

It was going to happen in the end anyway, Michael Ray Richardson said. Its better that it happens now so that we can get it out of the way.

Michael Ray Richardson led the Lightning to the NBL title in its first season. It was his fourth title in six years as a coach and in those six years, hes never failed to make the final in whatever league he coached in.

Michael Ray Richardson has developed a close relationship with Lightning owner Vito Frijia and general manager Taylor Brown.

We get along, Michael Ray Richardson said. I know how Vito runs his business and a big part of winning is how the business is handled at the top.

To show the kind of relationship the three have, when Brown was asked about the financial terms of the contract he said, We pay him in donuts.

Michael Ray Richardson has been tremendous for basketball in this city. Hes a regular at community events, is accessible and asks the same of his players. Michael Ray Richardson knows how to sell the game and the job he and the Lightning have done have put the Lightning on the fast track to becoming an integral part of the community.

It was a no-brainer when deciding whether to extend Micheals contract, Brown said. Micheal Ray has been an absolute essential part of our organization. His work in the community and with the youth of London has been remarkable.

Michael Ray Richardson has come to love London.

This is like a second home to me, Michael Ray Richardson said. Its nice to know you have some place where you can always come back to.

There is an understanding that if Michael Ray Richardson has an opportunity to coach in a significantly more prominent league no one will stand in his way.

Would I like to coach in the NBA? Of course, Michael Ray Richardson said. But Im not putting all my marbles in that bag.

Stability is important at the top of any organization. There are eight teams in the NBL. The Windsor Express are an expansion franchise. Of the other seven teams only three have the same coaches they started the season with last year.

It is hard to find a more competitive person than Micheal Ray. His drive and passion has helped steer this franchise," Brown said.

We are definitely excited to have him here in London and not having to compete against him.
