Foley agrees Reds extension


Anthony Foley has agreed a new one-year extension to remain as Minster head coach until the end of the 2016-17 season.

Foley signed a two-year contract when he was appointed head coach ahead of the 2014-15 season, with the option of a third year.

Both parties were happy to extend Foley's reign and he has committed to remaining at the province for another season.

Meanwhile, the province has confirmed they will be looking to appoint a Director of Rugby for next season.

"As confirmed previously we offered Anthony the option to extend his contract as per the initial agreement in 2014 and we are pleased to see him avail of this renewal and commit to the province for a further year," Munster Rugby CEO Garrett Fitzgerald said.

"The decision to seek a Director of Rugby was made at Munster Professional Game Board level in consultation with the IRFU, and is in line with our strategic plan for the organisation.”
