Warrington Wolves head coach Tony Smith signs a contract extension to keep him at the club until 2015
Warrington Wolves coach Tony Smith has signed a new three-year contract to extend his tenure at the club.
The former England boss has guided the Wolves to four pieces of silverware in as many years at the Halliwell Jones Stadium, but was unable to lift their first Super League title after suffering defeat by his former side, Leeds, earlier this month.
“I’m excited about our future and I’m pleased with the progress that we’ve made so far in the time that I’ve been here and I’m looking forward to hopefully progressing further,” he told the club’s website.
“Working with the people I get to work with in these exciting times for the club and being part of it as we try to establish ourselves as one of the big teams in the competition, excites me. I have a lot of respect for the people I’m working with and working for, so it was an easy decision to make.”
Smith also believes that a successful youth system and tight knit culture will allow the side to pursue further accolades in the coming seasons.
“We don’t have a lot of turnover, we’ve got some terrific young players coming through which is really exciting and I am expecting that they will take us to some new levels,” he added.
“There is depth within our squad and these young guys, who now have a year of full-time training under their belt, will be much more prepared for the rigours of Super League.
“I think it’s exciting times for the club, and we are reaping some rewards for the hard work we’re putting in. It’s a great environment to be working in both on and off the field”
