NOTTINGHAM Rugby head coach Martin Haag has committed himself to the club for the next two seasons after agreeing a contract extension.

NEW DEAL: Martin Haag has signed a contract extension, keeping him at Meadow Lane until the end of the 2014/15 season.

Haag, 44, has steered the Green and Whites to the RFU Championship promotion play-offs in his first season in charge at Meadow Lane.

He also guided Nottingham to the last eight of the British and Irish Cup.

Nottingham can secure a second or third place finish in the league by taking two points from the next two matches, starting with the Cornish Pirates at Meadow Lane on Sunday (1.15pm kick-off).

The former England and Bath lock was appointed in the summer, taking over from long-serving Director of Rugby Glenn Delaney.

Nottingham Rugby chief executive Simon Beatham is delighted that Haag has extended his stay until the end of the 2014/15 season.

"Martin has made an outstanding impression on Nottingham Rugby since arriving in July and we are thrilled that he has agreed to continue his excellent work," Beatham said.

"We have reached the semi-finals for the first time ever this season and our campaign is far from over. It comes as a huge boost that Martin has signed a new deal leading up to one of the most exciting months in the clubs' proud 137 year history.

"He leads a strong and talented coaching team that includes Ben Johnston and Neil Fowkes with great commitment and skill, and we are very confident he will continue to guide and inspire the development of the squad.

"In his first year at the club he has demonstrated a great ability to get the best out of his players and it is exiting for him to develop the squad and mould it for the future."

Beatham also revealed that the club is close to finalising contract extensions for a number of players and confirming new recruits in preparation for next season.

"Over the coming days and weeks we have a number of exciting announcements about the squad," Beatham said.
