Wigan coach Adrian Lam has signed a one-year contract extension with the club for 2021.
In 2020, Lam guided the Warriors to its first League Leaders’ Shield since 2012, was named Super League’s Coach of the Year and led the club to its 11th Grand Final.
Lam said: “I’m really excited. It’s a massive honour for me to re-sign at this great club.
“It’s been a fantastic year overall. I’ve seen the team grow as a unit and winning the League Leaders’ Shield was a highlight, but we must go one better in 2021.
“The squad has been strengthened each year since my arrival and, with the new players coming in and another year’s experience behind our hardened young players, we’re in a great position to take trophy-winning advantage of that.

“We have the opportunity to create a team environment for 2021 that’s steeled for action with speed to burn, making us a very difficult team to play against. We want teams to need to be at their very best to have a chance of beating us.
“In the Grand Final you could see how close knit our team was. That’s who we are now but we must, and can, get better to win those trophies. We’re looking forward to 2021 and to the excitement that a new Super League season promises.”
