West Bromwich Albion coach, Darren Moore have agreed on an improved contract extension with the club following his outstanding performance.
Moore who took over from Alan Pardew as interim caretaker almost turned the tide for the Baggies who are now relegated, but the club management has decided to stick with Moore as they look to make a return to the Premier League next season.
The 44-year-old’s stewardship over the final six games of the 2017/18 Premier League campaign saw a dramatic improvement in the team’s form and results.
West Brom Chief Executive Mark Jenkins announcing the deal said the impression Darren made across all areas of the Club delivered a powerful case for his promotion to Head Coach.
He said, “We are delighted to confirm Darren as our new Head Coach and we look forward to his continuing the excellent work we saw when he stepped into the role in an interim capacity in the first week of April,” said Mark.
“He embodies the spirit of the Club and the spirit of what we are striving to achieve in this new chapter ahead.
“We conducted a thorough process of recruitment but Darren’s powerful impact on the pitch and across all areas of the Club established him as the outstanding candidate.
“We suffered a torrid season but if there was a redeeming feature it was to see Darren at work over those final weeks, galvanising the Club and getting everyone positive again.
“We all know we have a challenging summer ahead of us but from talking at length to Darren about his plans, they are challenges he is ready to meet head-on.”
