The St George Illawarra Dragons announced Thursday that the Club and Head Coach Steve Price have agreed to terms for a contract extension beyond this season.
Price’s current contract with the Dragons expires at the end of 2013 and today’s agreement will see Price remain at the Club for an additional season, with the option of a further season in 2015.
“Our contractual situation enabled us to explore options which we have been doing and the Board has resolved to offer an extension to Steve Price,” said Dragons CEO Peter Doust.
“The Board have taken a very close interest in Steve’s continued development as an NRL Coach since he was extended the opportunity to be Head Coach of the Dragons in 2011 and we believe that he is to be respected for his contributions and disposition towards the Dragons, through testing times”.
Price,34, is delighted with the extension and extremely humbled to continue his coaching career with the Dragons.
“I have been at the Dragons as a Coach since 2002 and love everything about it, the history and tradition and all the people associated with the Club,” said Price.
“I feel very proud to be able to continue my association and am thankful to the Dragons Board for giving me the opportunity and I am excited about the future.
“In saying this, I have remained very focused on this season and have not let the discussions distract me from what I have needed to do this season and I am really confident about where we are headed.”
