Ulster have announced that head coach Dan McFarland has signed a contract extension until 2025.

McFarland has been in charge of the Irish province since 2018 but are yet to claim a title under the 50-year-old.

Ulster managed to reach the semi-final in the United Rugby Championship while also reaching the round of 16 in the Heineken Champions Cup. He also worked with Connacht, Ireland Under 20, Glasgow Warriors and Scotland as assistant coach in the past.

“I am delighted to have extended my contract with Ulster Rugby, and I would like to thank Jonny Petrie for all his support over the last four years," he told the club's official website.

“I love my job here, which is only possible because of the good people I get to work with. It is through the growth, competitiveness, and teamwork of the support team and the players that we continue to compete for championships.

“However, the fact remains our ultimate goal is to win championships. I am looking forward to driving the process of finding, guiding, and supporting the people capable of doing that for this province and its passionate supporters, who truly share in our joy and pain.

“The challenge ahead is immense but that is why it is so exciting. For me, it has the feel of unfinished business.”
