“Chris has shown himself to be one of the best coaches in the AFL, and we believe the team is in great hands with Chris as our senior coach,”

“We have seen a great period of change with our list, with only four members of our 2011 premiership team still with us. To have been able to integrate so many new players into our club, play attractive football and keep us consistently in the finals mix has been an exceptional effort. While many people are involved in our football department, Chris has led the coaching group brilliantly.

“The AFL’s equalisation measures are there to force successful clubs down the ladder, so to have come through this period and to remain in contention year in year out has been a credit to Chris and his coaching group.

“We are excited that we have reached this agreement and look forward to Chris continuing his great work with us over the next four years.” Geelong president Colin Carter said.

Obviously the club is happy with our recent results..happy with the way we are going ..happy with working with CS.

Its either a smart tactical move or a confirmation that there is one big gravy train inside the club where results do not really matter as long we are not ordinary to bad.

Quoting from the Cats website:

"Geelong has agreed to a long term contract extension with senior coach Chris Scott that will see him at the helm until at least the end of the 2022 season.

“Chris has shown himself to be one of the best coaches in the AFL, and we believe the team is in great hands with Chris as our senior coach,” Geelong president Colin Carter said.

“We have seen a great period of change with our list, with only four members of our 2011 premiership team still with us. To have been able to integrate so many new players into our club, play attractive football and keep us consistently in the finals mix has been an exceptional effort. While many people are involved in our football department, Chris has led the coaching group brilliantly.

What is everyone's thoughts? I personally don't mind a bit of stability, beats some Carlton teams where the coach changed so often no consistency could be found. Having the coach locked in for the next four seasons allows a realistic plan for the future to develop.

Can only think that a club like Freo where he has a history might have been sniffing around which is why the club locked him in no rather than letting the existing contract run into next year and then judge efforts on that form.

Think you may have hit the nail on the head there, 3 premierships since 2007 and the club must be happy to be good not great while membership numbers continue to rise.

We’ve become very complacent.
