Coach Jason Holland re-commits to Hurricanes with two year extension

  • 12/03/2021

Jason Holland will stay on as coach of the Hurricanes, signing on for another two years at the helm of the Wellington-based Super Rugby side.

Holland, 48, will remain at the Hurricanes through until the end of the 2023 season, after taking over last year from John Plumtree, who left to link-up with Ian Foster as part of the All Blacks set-up.

The Hurricanes' coaching ranks have also been bolstered by the re-signing of Holland's assistant Chris Gibbes, another to sign a two-year extension.

"Alfie [Holland] and Gibbo [Gibbes] have formed an excellent relationship since they started coaching together at the Hurricanes," chief executive Avan Lee says.

"Both men are highly respected by players and staff and have already made a significant contribution to our organisation. 

"We are delighted that they have chosen to extend their contracts until the end of 2023."

Currently on their bye week, the Hurricanes will be back in action against the Chiefs in Wellington next Saturday.
