Foley has re-signed with the Force until the end of he 2017 season.
Western Force have re-signed coach Michael Foley on a two-year deal, tying him to the Super Rugby side until the end of the 2017 season.
Foley took charge at the Force in 2012 and steered the WA franchise to the finals in 2014.
The World Cup-winning rake said the future of the club was exciting, but added that there was a need to display consistency over consecutive seasons.
“I’ve been very fortunate to be a part of the team and the wider Western Force family for the past two seasons, and the opportunity to be part of the journey into the future is exciting,” Foley was quoted by The Roar.
“Working with a group of players who fight and play for one another, a staff who are committed to the players, and a band of supporters who are there for us through thick and thin is special.
“This year provides a new challenge for us. Last year, under the leadership of Matt [Hodgson] and the Standards Group, the team showed an ability to back up week-to-week and the ability to dust itself off and rip in after setbacks.
“This year the challenge is to display that consistency over consecutive seasons.”
Senior assistant Dave Wessels and backs/attack coach Kevin Foote also extended their contracts through until the end of 2017.
Foley said he was pleased both Wessels and Foote had decided to stay on at the Force.
“An integral part of the decision to stay on was that ‘Blood’ [Wessels] and ‘Footey’ [Foote] would be part of our push for greater success into the future,” he continued.
“Their coaching perspectives and energy for the team have been second to none.”
The Force opens its 2015 Super Rugby campaign against the NSW Waratahs on February 27 in Sydney.
