Three year deal for Millers boss...
Rotherham United manager Steve Evans has today signed a new three year contract with the club.
Evans penned his new deal at a press conference in the New York Stadium boardroom today, after securing back-to-back promotions following a dramatic victory over Leyton Orient last Sunday in the League One play-off final at Wembley Stadium.
The victory will see the Millers play in the second tier of English football for the first time since 2005, prompting Chairman Tony Stewart to reward his manager with an extended deal.
Following today’s announcement, Evans admitted that he was delighted to extend his stay at New York Stadium:
“I am very proud to serve Rotherham United Football Club and work for our Chairman Tony Stewart and also our loyal fanbase.
“It was an easy decision to sign this contract; the terms of the contract were quite literally decided in just two minutes. It was that easy.
“I have thoroughly enjoyed my time as manager of this magnificent club and I am looking forward to many more years at the helm, starting with what is set to be an exciting season back in The Championship.
“The Chairman and I live and breathe this football club every day, we share the same ambition, belief and vision for this club. Everyone from top to bottom is pulling in the same direction and that is what makes this club so special.
“Now I have signed this deal nothing will change in terms of my approach. I will still be the first into the club, and the last out – the hard work must continue. The amount of success we’ve had as a management team has come from a strong work ethic and it gives me great pleasure to confirm that Paul will be staying alongside me by committing his future to the club as well.”
