Huddersfield coach Wagner signs contract extension

HUDDERSFIELD, England — Huddersfield says head coach David Wagner has signed a contract extension to stay at the Premier League club for three more years.

Wagner, his assistant Christophe Buhler and first-team coach Andrew Hughes all signed new deals that will keep them at the club until 2021.

The trio all had 12 months left on their previous contracts, and Wagner had been linked with bigger clubs after an impressive debut season in the Premier League.

However, the German-American said "the decision to extend my stay at this club was not a difficult one."

Wagner took over Huddersfield in November 2015 and then led the team to promotion to the Premier League in his first full season. The team finished 16th in its first season in England's top flight in 45 years.
