Mel Pearson has been officially announced as Michigan's hockey coach:

ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Mel Pearson has been named the University of Michigan's head coach of ice hockey, as announced today (Monday, April 24) by Warde Manuel, the Charles F-ing Woodson Director of Athletics. Pearson, who becomes the ninth head coach in program history, returns to Ann Arbor after previously serving 23 seasons as an assistant coach for the Wolverines.

In addition, Detroit News hockey writer George Sipple asserted this on WTKA this morning:

That would be bad news for one of Billy Powers and Brian Wiseman, the current assistants.

UPDATE: it sounds like John Madden, currently head coach of the AHL's Cleveland Monsters, will not be the second assistant.
