In a sign that they back him to the moon, the Parramatta Eels have retained head coach Brad Arthur until the end of 2025.
On the back of a grand final appearance in 2022 and numerous finals appearances prior to that, the club felt that Arthur was the only man to lead them forward.
“We have come a long way as a Club both on and off the field in recent years and Brad has played a major part in our success,” said Parramatta Eels Chairman Sean McElduff.
“Our NRL team has consistently played finals football since 2019 falling one game short of a premiership last season.
“The players love him and we’ve seen many of them develop and become better players under his coaching and guidance.”
Just as excited is head coach Arthur who has been involved with the Eels for many years now as well as with the local Parramatta rugby league communities.
Set to become the club’s longest serving coach later this season, Arthur believes that the best is yet to come.
“We are heading in the right direction, and while we’re proud of making it to the Grand Final last year, everyone at the Club is determined to take it one step further this season and deliver the results that our Members and fans deserve,” said Arthur.
“I love being at this Club and the relationships I have with our staff and our playing group.
“The best is yet to come from this team, so I’m excited to confirm my future at the Club.”
