Former Wigan coach Michael Maguire has signed a contract extension at South Sydney Rabbitohs.
Maguire, who left the Warriors to return to the NRL ahead of the 2012 season, has won 36 of his 53 matches in charge and is now committed to the cause until the end of 2017.
Rabbitohs CEO Shane Richardson said: “Michael is one of the best young coaches in the NRL and we couldn’t be happier that he has committed to the Club for the next four seasons.
“The changes Michael has implemented here in his first two years as Head Coach have done wonders for our football programs, and we are looking forward to working with him on the continuing improvements we are looking to make, both on and off the field.”
Maguire has led Souths to consecutive Preliminary Final appearances in his two seasons at the club.
He said: “I’m really pleased to have re-signed here, at such a great Club, and to have the opportunity to continue to work on everything we’ve been doing for an extended period.
“We’ve got a way to go to get to where we want to be and we’re working extremely hard to reach those goals.
“It’s great to be a part of the Rabbitohs family.”
