Alan Solomons rewarded for Edinburgh flying start with contract extension

Edinburgh head coach Alan Solomons has extended his contract until the end of next season.

The South African, who joined Edinburgh in the summer of 2013, has been rewarded for Edinburgh's positive start to the season, which saw them win four consecutive Guinness Pro12 games and their opening two European Challenge Cup matches.

Scottish Rugby Union chief executive Mark Dodson said: "Alan is successfully building on the improved performances achieved by Edinburgh Rugby last season, which saw them reach the European Challenge Cup Final and secure the 1872 Cup.

"The club has made a positive start to the new season and we wanted to ensure Alan was able to continue to develop the vision he started in 2013. We are therefore very pleased he has committed to Edinburgh through to 2017."

Solomons added: "While we have made good progress over the past two seasons, we still have some way to go and I am pleased to be able to continue to build on what we have achieved."
