Exeter Chiefs Chief Executive Tony Rowe OBE has spoken of his delight after it was confirmed that four of his senior coaching staff have today agreed new long-term deals with the Gallagher Premiership club.
Director of Rugby, Rob Baxter, together with head coach Ali Hepher, forwards coach Rob Hunter and skills coach Ricky Pellow have all put pen to paper, ensuring they will be driving the club forward in the future.
Baxter, Hepher and Pellow have all been part of the club's coaching staff since the 2009/10 season, while Hunter has been in his role since joining from the England Under-20s set-up in 2013.
Together the quartet have overseen some of the club's greatest triumphs, including a Heineken Champions Cup win, two Premiership Rugby titles, as well as two domestic cup successes. They have also unearthed a wealth of talent, many of whom have featured prominently both for the Chiefs and on the international stage.
Commenting on the news, Rowe said: "I'm delighted that we have been able to secure the futures of four of our core coaches here at the club. As a collective they have been instrumental in the rise of the club in recent season, helping bringing a genuine level of on-field success.
"Having spoken with all of them, I know they share the same vision as myself of driving the club onto even greater things in the coming years. As a group they have a real connection with one another and I know that they believe they can continue to build on what they have created."
