Parramatta have announced that coach Brad Arthur’s contract has been extended for a further two seasons, tying him the club until the end 2021.
Eels CEO Bernie Gurr was pleased that the club could finally lock away Arthur.

“It is the view of the Board and CEO that Brad is the best choice to lead our Club’s Football Program into the future.
“We are focused on continuing to be a Development Club and we strongly believe in what Brad is building and his ability to lead our NRL team in the right direction.”
Arthur was excited to continue his journey at the club as he aspires to lead them to success.
“I feel very fortunate to be able to continue coaching at this great Club. We have a proud and passionate supporter base and I want us to give them the results they deserve,” he told the club website.
“Everyone involved in our Football Program realises the responsibility we have in bringing sustained success to our Members and fans and that remains our priority.”
