Gentle extends Hull tenure
Hull FC’s Australian coach Peter Gentle has signed a one-year contract extension which will keep him at the Stobart Super League club until the end of 2015.
Gentle is in his first season with the Black and Whites after joining them from Wests Tigers on a two-year deal and has guided them to a sixth-place finish in Super League.
Hull owner Adam Pearson announced the extension at today’s player-of-the-year awards event at the KC Stadium.
“I’ve come here with a job to do and I want to see it through,” Gentle told the Hull Daily Mail.
“I made my intentions clear. I haven’t come here using this job as leverage to get an NRL job. I’m here for the long haul.
“Everyone has settled so well, the city has made us feel so welcome and there is a lot of work to be done here that I want to see out.
“It was a surprise when Adam Pearson came with an offer, but I am grateful of being given an opportunity for another year.”
