Dean Richards signs new Newcastle Falcons contract
Dean Richards has signed a new three-year contract as director of rugby at Newcastle Falcons.
Richards led the club to their first-ever Aviva Premiership play-off finish this season as the club progressed to the semi-final of the European Rugby Challenge Cup.
“I feel passionate about the club,” Richards told reporters.
“I always wanted to remain here and there is still a lot of work to do in terms of continuing the great progress we are making.”
Richards took over at Newcastle in 2012 and has led the team to the top tier of European competition for the first time since 2005.
