Rotherham United manager Paul Warne has signed a new three year deal with the club following their promotion to the Championship.
Following Rotherham's success in the play-off final at Wembley last weekend, the Millers have moved to secure the long-term future of Warne and his assistant Richie Barker, who has also signed a three-year deal.
Warne took charge of Rotherham in April 2017, and guided the club to a fourth-placed finish in League One in his first season in charge before earning promotion to the Championship through the play-offs.
Speaking to the club's website, Warne said: "All of the staff are equally pleased that we've got the assurance of the new contract because they're people that I have brought in and they've worked really hard for us, so it's pleasing for them too to know that we have the backing of the chairman.
"When myself and Richie took over, we wanted to leave a legacy and leave the club in better condition than when we got it.
"There were funds available to spend on players last summer but the chairman kindly accepted our suggestion to spend it on developing the training ground and that will help us again this year and will be an asset for the club going forward."
Barker added: "I think if you'd have told me that we'd be promoted from League One at Wembley this time last season then I wouldn't have believed it, but we were always striving to achieve that.
"Initially our success was about making the football club better and in the short-term, that's resulted in a promotion and a really enjoyable day at Wembley."
