It didn't take long but Tom Renney is back in the NHL.

Just over a month after his tenure as head coach of the Edmonton Oilers ended, Renney signed a three-year deal to be an associate coach with the Detroit Red Wings on Thursday.

Renney was approached by the Red Wings a little over a week ago when head coach Mike Babcock called to see if he would consider the job.

He had been talking with other teams involving international opportunities.

After head coaching stints with the Vancouver Canucks (1996-97) and New York Rangers (2004-09), Renney joined the Oilers in 2009 and became head coach in 2010.

The Oilers did not renew his contract after the 2011-2012 season.
