Hibs boss Ross signs contract extension

Hibernian head coach Jack Ross has signed a two-year contract extension until the summer of 2024.

Ross led Hibs to a third-place finish in last season’s Scottish Premiership to qualify for the inaugural Europa Conference League.

They also reached the Scottish Cup final and Scottish League Cup semi-final.

“I’m very happy at Hibernian and I have been well supported by my staff, the players and the board,” said Ross, who took charge at Easter Road in November 2019.

“We had a good season last season and the aim this year is to build on that. We’ve got a terrific group of players.

“We are looking to bring in one or two to strengthen our group and I believe we have an exciting season ahead of us.”

Ross said last week that he expects interest in defenders Josh Doig and Ryan Porteous plus striker Kevin Nisbet this summer

Hibernian chairman Ronald J Gordon added: “Jack is a terrific leader for our team and club. He has helped us make great strides on the pitch and has delivered what has been a very successful season, with the team playing exciting, dynamic and winning football.

“He shares our vision of the possibilities at Hibs. His management is insightful and deliberate, and I am confident that we will continue to build on last season’s success.

“We are keen to keep a very good thing going under Jack’s leadership.

“Stability and continuity are critical as we continue to make progress in making our club all that it can be, so this is an important step forward.”
