Giants coach Danny Byrne has signed a new contract that will keep him at the club for another three years.

Byrne is in his second season as head coach with the new deal covering the next three seasons after the close of the current campaign.

The move is a reflection of the success the team – which reached the BBL Trophy and Cup semi-finals and is currently in the Play-off positions – has achieved so far this season.

Plymouth-born Byrne, 43, who joined the club as former player-coach Yorick Williams’ assistant two seasons ago, said: “I’m delighted to be able to put pen to paper and have the security to try to continue the good work we have started this season.

“The club’s plans following the move to George Carnall play a part in my decision to commit to the club and it is a reflection of the hard work and success we have had so far as a team as well.

“We would love to able to keep this group of players together and add to it but there is still plenty to play for this season, however, before we get down to the business of preparing for the future.”

Giants CEO John Dwan said: “We have been talking to Danny and were keen to extend his stay with the club following the excellent start he has made to being  head coach at the this level.

“The way he has recruited and galvanised the current group of players is a testament to him and his team and we are confident he will continue to be a real asset to the Giants.

“I’d like to thank Danny for the work he has done so far and wish him good luck with building on it.”

The Giants return to BBL action with a home game against Leicester Riders on Sunday (5pm) at George Carnall.
