Amidst the sheer number of breaking stories coming out of Wigan last night, the club confirmed that Adrian Lam would be Warriors Head Coach in 2020.
Lam boasts an impressive coaching CV following previous spells at St George-Illawarra, Sydney and the Australian Kangaroos side.
The 48-year-old arrived at the DW Stadium ahead of this season but enjoyed a difficult start to life in the north-west, losing six of his first seven games, including a World Club Challenge defeat to the Roosters back in February.
Lam has remained coy about his chances of staying at the club beyond this season, but their upturn in form in recent weeks has been drastic to say the least.
The Cherry-and-Whites head into this week’s derby meeting with table-topping St Helens having won five matches in a row, and now sit in the play-off spots with eight games of the regular season remaining.
On the contract announcement, Lam said: “I am very honoured and privileged to remain on as Head Coach of the Wigan Warriors.
“As Coach, I am most looking forward to developing and bringing through the next generation of young Wigan players and help progress the style of play which we have built on for the 2019 season.”
