Duluth Huskies extend Culver’s contract

The Duluth Huskies announced Thursday that they have given a three-year contract extension to general manager Greg Culver.

Culver, a native of Lake Nebagamon, started his Huskies career in corporate and group sales and stadium operations during the 2015 season and was named general manager after the season ended.

“I’m confident in our coaching staff and we’re looking forward to getting after it,” Culver said. “Our goal will always be a Northwoods League championship.

“I'm deeply committed to the Huskies organization, community, sponsors and fan base. They deserve a championship caliber team and I’ll do whatever it takes to keep us at the forefront.”

After a great season both on and off the field, Huskies’ team owner Michael Rosenzweig praised Culver.

“Greg has proven himself to be an invaluable part of our organization and we look forward to the years to come with that same strong commitment,” Rosenzweig said.

The Huskies, who finished 47-25 during the regular season and went 3-2 in the postseason, set a team stolen base record with 167, breaking the old mark of 134.
