Western Bulldogs coach Luke Beveridge will remain at the club until the end of 2023, after he put pen to paper on a new deal.
The 48-year-old had a contract until the end of the 2020 season but has extended for a further three years.
Beveridge is in his fifth season at The Kennel, leading the side to the finals in his first season and of course breaking a 62-year premiership drought in 2016.
“I am very grateful for the opportunity to continue in my capacity as the senior coach of this brilliant club through to 2023,” Beveridge told westernbulldogs.com.au.
“It is such a privilege to work with so many great people who do an outstanding job of guiding and nurturing our young men. It is also an honour to be associated with a club that does so much in the community and continues to provoke thought around our social conscience and what we can do for others.”
Bulldogs CEO Ameet Bains reiterated how important this deal was for the future of the club as they strive to win their third AFL/VFL premiership.
“We’ve been in discussions with Luke for a while about an extension, and we’re thrilled to have formalised the new deal,” said Bains.
“We look forward to the future with a great deal for excitement and optimism.”
The Dogs, who sit 10th on the ladder with a record of 8-8, take on St Kilda at Marvel Stadium on Sunday.
