The Highlanders head coach, Jamie Josephs has pledged his allegiance to the Dunedin-based franchise for an additional two years.
 
The former All Black and Otago representative came on as head coach for the Highlanders in 2010 following coaching success with the Maori All Blacks and the Wellington Lions. 
 
New Zealand Rugby General Manager Rugby Neil Sorensen said:  “We’re delighted to have Jamie staying with the Highlanders and New Zealand Rugby for another year. 
 
"Jamie is a hugely popular figure in the Highlanders region and we know he loves giving back to that community.
 
“Jamie can be proud of the work he has already achieved with the Highlanders, and we are excited to see what he will bring in 2015 and 2016,” he said. 
 
Highlanders General Manager Roger Clark commented: “over the last four years Jamie Joseph has developed into a very good coach, and the Highlanders are excited by the progress the coaching team has made in 2014 led by Jamie.
 
"We are very enthusiastic about where this coaching team can take the Highlanders in the future. 
 
"When Jamie first started with the Highlanders in 2011 the goal was to develop the Highlanders as an organisation and a team that the fans and stakeholders respected and supported. 
 
"There is no doubt that Jamie has had a large influence on the Highlanders achieving this goal." 
 
Joseph added: “We’ve got an exciting young group of guys playing for us this year and I’m looking forward to working with them in the future as head coach to see what we can achieve as a team.
 
"I’ve got a great coaching team around me and we’ve worked hard this year to create the right environment and keen to keep this going into the next few seasons.
 
"I understand the responsibility that goes with being a head coach and I am looking forward to that challenge in the next two years.
 
"I also understand what rugby means to the people and communities in the south and I feel privileged to be the coach of a team that is showing some real promise and future – being a part of that is exciting.”
