North Queensland Cowboys coach Paul Green has signed a new three-year deal with the club.
The deal will see the 45-year-old remain at the club until the end of the 2021 season.
Green took charge of the Cowboys prior to the 2014 season and has led the club to two NRL Grand Final appearances in his four full seasons, including the 2015 premiership and 2016 World Club Challenge.
The Cowboys have qualified for the NRL finals in every season of Green’s tenure and the Australian is delighted to extend his stay at the club.
He said: “I am very happy to have my future sorted and even happier my future is with the Cowboys.
“My family is really settled here, my wife hails from the region and we are all really pleased to be able to continue to be part of the North Queensland community.
“The future looks very bright for our club as we usher in the next generation of talent and prepare for a move to our new home stadium from 2020.
“There is no question it is an extremely exciting time to be part of the Cowboys as we charge ahead into a new era.”
North Queensland supporters will be hoping Green can turn their fortunes around soon, with the Cowboys currently being sat second bottom in the NRL ladder, with just one win from their opening six games.
