Roos will coach Melbourne until the end of 2016 after taking an option for a third year on his contract.
Paul Roos has agreed to coach Melbourne for a third year and will now be at the helm at the club until the end of the 2016 AFL season.
The former Swans coach initially signed a two-year deal at the Demons with an option for a third year.
Roos has been tightlipped on his future and as late as last week offered no insight into his future at the club.
But following Melbourne’s bye, and in the lead up to its Round 19 clash against the Brisbane Lions and Etihad Stadium, Roos told the club he would take up the option for a third year.
Roos inherited a team that had won just two matches in 2013 – Melbourne’s fifth worse season in VFL/AFL history since 1897.
The team also had a percentage of 54.1 last year.
With Roos at the helm, Melbourne have shown drastic signs of improvement and have won four of their 17 games in 2014, after finishing 17th with a 2-20 record in 2013.
