Veteran GM Doug Wilson of the San Jose Sharks wants head coach Todd McLellan back behind the team's bench next season.

"My support for Todd is rock solid," Wilson told ESPN.com Friday. "I'm 100 percent behind my coach."

Wilson shared the same sentiments with local San Jose media on Friday.

It remains to be seen what ownership in San Jose will want to do after the Sharks lost a seven-game series to Los Angeles in the first round despite a 3-0 lead.

Wilson hinted at possible roster changes this offseason but made it clear he wants his head coach back.

McLellan has two more years left on his contract. He would be a hot commodity on the coaching market to say the least, as he is considered one of the top coaches in the league.
