Richard Cockerill has extended his Edinburgh stay by signing a two year contract extension, committing to the club until 2021.
After several disappointing campaigns, the ex-Leicester Tigers Director of rugby has led Edinburgh to the brink of the Pro14 playoffs, they cannot be caught by fourth placed Ulster and one adrift of Scarlets, following their recent 52-14 win over the Welsh region, with one round of the regular season still to play.
“I saw this as a fresh challenge and have really enjoyed getting stuck in at Edinburgh,” Cockerill said.
“We are building a better squad and a better culture, bit by bit, with the aim of improving results and making us more competitive and consistent.
“The support I’ve received from Scottish Rugby since I arrived has been first-class and I’m excited about what the future will hold for Edinburgh Rugby if we continue to apply ourselves in the right way.”
