McClennan extends Leeds contract

Successful former Kiwis coach Brian McClennan has extended his contract with English club Leeds by 12 months, ending persistent rumours he could take an NRL job.

McClennan, who has guided Leeds to successive Super League titles, will now remain with the club at least until the end of the 2011 season.

It is his second 12-month extension since joining Leeds on a two-year deal in late 2007.

"I am happy here as long as the club, the players and my family are happy with me and that remains the case," McClennan told the Leeds website.

"There's been a lot of speculation from outside our organisation about my future but that is not something I've paid any attention to."

McClennan, 48, whose father Mike coached another English club St Helens in 1990-93, coached New Zealand to the Tri-Nations title in 2005 when they beat Australia 24-0 in the final.

He coached the Kiwis from 2005 until he resigned in 2007 to join Leeds.
