Catalans Dragons Head Coach Steve McNamara has signed a new three year contract too remain at the club.
McNamara managed to divert the club away from relegation worries in 2018 when he first took the job and led them to their first major trophy when they became the first non English side to lift the Challenge Cup.
“I am delighted to extend my contract with the Dragons,” he said.
“We are a unique club and it is an honour to be the head coach for the next three seasons. The ambition of the club to improve all areas of our organization has made this an easy decision for me to accept.
“I am driven to lead the team to more success after getting our first ever trophy in 2018. I along with the rest of the staff will work extremely hard and strive for the improvements that are needed for us to achieve this.”
Chairman Bernard Guasch added: “Offering new contracts to Steve and his staff was an obvious decision for the club. He has been part of a process of structuring and improving the whole organization at the club since his arrival and we want to work with him on the long term.
“We appreciate the commitment and determination of Steve, qualities shared by all the staff members around him and we totally trust them.”
