The 34-year-old Wales international has extended his stay with the Chiefs after joining them from Cardiff Blues last summer.
"He is an ideal person for us because we could put him in there and we would be very comfortable with him starting, or he can be on the bench or he can run our LV= Cup side as skipper - he has a lot of skills," said Exeter head coach Rob Baxter.
"Also, he is a particularly good guy around the squad.
"He understands that some of his role will be helping other players around him, and a large part of his role is making sure he's bang on form when his opportunity comes to play. Ceri has been very good at that.
"Ceri will also be doing a little bit of coaching this year and a bit of mentoring, particularly in the academy and some individuals who look to be coming through and developing."
Sweeney, who has made 35 appearances for Wales, told the club's official website: "I'm really happy and I've enjoyed the year so far and playing down here.
"I've not had too many opportunities to play, but it's a good environment and I'm delighted to have been asked to stay on for another year.
"Certainly it's lived up to expectations for me and coming to Exeter was a new and fresh challenge, which has reinvigorated me a bit. For me, it's been nice working with different people in a different environment."
