A minimum 4 years is a pretty significant risk, a lot can change in football over a short time frame.
Paywall so no details but this would take him to 11 years as coach passing Malthouse (10) and 1 year shy of Worsfold (12)
Our only other 3 coaches (Alexander, Todd and Judge) have a total of 5 years combined
A decade ago the club went from top to bottom in as many years.
Not a swipe against Simpson, but the club has finished outside the top 4 in four of the past five seasons and the squad is not getting any younger.
Pleased to see him re-sign a contract, but I don't believe the results necessarily merit the length that appear to be on offer.
